Celebrating California Energy Commission Grant on Thursday
San Francisco International Airport management will detail installation of new high-speed DC chargers for electric vehicles, supported by the California Energy Commission via the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, on Thursday.
Four Level III fast-chargers will serve customers at the airport’s cell phone lot, where drivers meeting passengers await word that their flights have arrived.
“This grant represents a further enhancement to the Airport’s robust Clean Air Vehicle policies and infrastructure, and is further evidence of the progressive support structure that exists on a local, regional, and statewide level,” states a release.
‘Redeem’ Brand Biomethane Too
Including commercial vehicles, some 600 compressed natural gas vehicles operate in and around SFO. Other alternative fuels and advanced technologies bring the clean vehicle count there to more than 3,000.
SFO said late last year that two CNG stations on airport property would offer “Redeem” brand biomethane from Clean Energy Fuels.
SFO’s press event to highlight the new chargers and other CEC-backed work takes place at 9:30am on Thursday, June 19.
