Costco EV Chargers


An enthusiastic supporter of EV transportation from the very beginning of the rollout of the EV1 has been Costco. Costco's charging sites as well as the services available at each store are summarized at right for Southern California in a list scanned from a Costco flyer (5/2001). At far right is the Northern California list. Note that in at least Southern California, there are more Costco stores with EV charging than there are with gasoline stations!
