Free EV Charging Stations

How Do You Get Free EV Charging at Public Places?
Your employer may provide you with free EV charging. But how do you get free charging at public places? It could be either with a RFID card or without a card.
1.Here are a few examples without a RFID card
A. Level 1
Free Charging at High & Alma Garage, 430 High Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301

B. Level 2
Free Charging at Palo Alto Public Parking, 533 Cowper St, Palo Alto, CA 94301

C. Level 3
EV charge station at Walgreens 399 El Camino Real South San Francisco, CA 94080

2. And then all the car dealership currently would offer free, Nissan, Fiat, Ford, Kia etc. The only problem with some dealership is that they may less welcome you by saying they have their own customers waiting to charge. A lot of free L2 chargers at the dealership don’t need RFID card, while L3 quick chargers a likely require RFID card.

EV quick charge station at Capital Kia, 755 Capitol Expressway Auto Mall San Jose, CA 95136

3. When the station was built with government grant, the charge stations were free. Some new stations are free because they are new, and then there are not free later. Nissan has No Charge To Charge program for a new Nissan Leaf owner to have free charge for the first 2 years, after the first 2 years, it’s no longer free. Below are some free stations I have used in the past
