Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging & CNG Fuel Stations
City Hall Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations
The City of Placentia is continually seeking grant opportunities for resources that will benefit the community through new and/or expanded services and programs, as well as reduce the operating costs of the City. In 2015, the City acquired 10 new Chevy Spark electric vehicles (EV) to replace fuel-inefficient fleet vehicles and installed 12 electric charging stations at the Civic Center complex with the use of California Environmental Protection Agency (CA EPA) grants, Air Quality Management District (AQMD) grants and Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) Clean Transportation funding.
Two EV charging stations are available for the general public's use while visiting or conducting business at the Civic Center. There is no cost to the public to use these dedicated EV charging stations. The charging stations will keep the City's new electric vehicles on the road, providing various services to our community, while at the same time reducing long-term fuel and maintenance costs, as well as helping to reduce our carbon footprint. The EV charging stations are located at the Civic Center: 401 East Chapman Avenue, Placentia, CA 90870
CNG for Cleaner Air
The Natural Gas Vehicle Station, operated by Trillium, offers compressed natural gas (CNG), a naturally occurring gas that consists primarily of methane. Derived from gas wells or as a by-product of crude oil production, CNG produces far fewer pollutants than comparable gasoline or diesel versions. It also produces less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses.
From State Highway 57, exit at Orangethorpe Avenue and go east. Turn right on Melrose Street, then left on La Jolla Street. The station is on the left-hand side of the road and is located in the Placentia's Corporation Yard. Look for the blue CNG signs.
The station is open 24 hours a day and accepts all major credit cards. For more information, please visit Trillium CNG's website.
