Sonoma County's Electric Vehicle Trail

This electric vehicle charging station in Sonoma is one of many throughout Sonoma County.

Electric cars need, well, electricity. Sonoma County is a charge away from most points in the Bay Area, Sacramento, and other Northern California locations, with enough charging stations in the area to ensure that you get back home safe and sound.

There a few dozen public charging stations throughout the county and more are being added at a rapid pace. Most, though not all, replace traditional parking spots in city, commercial, or shopping center parking lots. Some of the locations on the list have more than one station. Many charging stations are free, while others cost about $1 to $1.50 per hour.

To find a charging station near you, visit ChargePointAmerica. Click on “Find Stations.” Enter your location (just the zip code works fine), click the search icon, and a Google map will appear showing all nearby charging stations. A box at the side lists the closest stations; you can also click on the map’s numbered circles to get more information.

Below is a list of charging stations from ChargePointAmerica, shown alphabectically by city; it's accurate as of April 20, 2016. Also, more and more hotels and inns are installing charging stations, so it's good to ask when you make your reservations.

North America is the strongest market for light duty plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), with more than 317,000 sold nationwide from 2011 to 2015. Electric vehicle sales are trending upward. According to a study from Pike Research, EV sales are expected to grow globally, but the U. S. will be the biggest market by far. By 2020 an estimated 1.8 million plug-in electric vehicles will be plying U.S. roads — 47 percent of the expected 3.8 million worldwide total of such vehicles.

Sonoma County’s forward-thinking efforts in building EV charging stations have resulted from a years-long “electrical vehicle partnership” between the nine cities within Sonoma County, the Northern Sonoma County Air Pollution Control District, Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, Sonoma County Transportation Authority, and the Sonoma County Water Agency.
