SMUD, in partnership with Sacramento International Airport (SMF), Sacramento Valley Station (SVS), California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), ChargerHelp!, and AECOM, propose the deployment of Direct Current Fast Charging stations at three locations in Sacramento, enabling increased access to electric vehicle (EV) charging for ride-share drivers, food delivery drivers, rental car fleets, shared mobility services, and residents. The EV Charging Stations will be located at three sites in SMUD’s Service Area. The physical addresses are:
• Sacramento International Airport: 6900 Airport Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95837
• Sacramento Valley Station: 401 I St, Sacramento, CA 95814
• California State University, Sacramento: 6000 J St, Sacramento, California, 95819
Construction of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure at these three locations will consist of minor digging, trenching, and other construction activities for installation the EV Chargers. All charging stations will have a minimum power output rating of 150 kilowatts (kW), with most being 200kW. The sites at SMF, SVS, and CSUS were selected because they are shovel-ready and require no infrastructure upgrades aside from charger installation. Installation of the proposed chargers will be done within existing capacity, significantly reducing the time needed to connect the chargers. The construction crews will follow established best management practices for soil management during all ground disturbing activities. Where necessary the parking lots will be repaired once all work has been completed. All work completed in traffic paths of travel will utilize traffic management plans. The project construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2024 and be completed within approximately 3 months.
