Located in parking lot F, this station is free and available 24/7. While it’s intended for Las Positas students and faculty, if you’re passing through Livermore (on your way to Costco, perhaps?) and need an emergency recharge, you can do so here.

In terms of the most convenient EV charging stations in the Tri-Valley, this one hits the spot. Grab a bite at the food court while your car charges, then hop back onto I-580 and get on your way to work in no time. There are multiple outlets so you shouldn’t have to fight with other EV drivers for a spot. You need an EVgo charging plan for this station (and for most others).

Tesla Service Center Dublin

Price: free for Tesla owners

Operating Hours: available 24/7

Ports: Tesla Supercharger

The Tesla Superchargers are truly convenient – and fast. Rather than charging your electric vehicle in a matter of hours, it takes only minutes to charge up your Model S and get back on the road. Tesla service centers are located near public wifi hotspots, coffee shops, and convenience stores, so you can take a break while your EV charges up. Charging for 30 minutes gets you up to 170 miles in travel range, which is plenty to get you to where you are going or to another charging station.
