Pricing Notice:RCEA’s ChargePoint stations charge a $0.50 session fee and a $0.25 per kWh fee. A Congestion Zone has been established, encompassing the stations at the GHD Building on 3rd St in Eureka, Madaket Square in Eureka, and the F St parking lot in Arcata.

At these three stations, there is an additional $1/hr charge beginning after your vehicle has been plugged into the charger for 2 hours. Please keep in mind that RCEA’s public charging stations are designed to be used to top off your vehicle, not to fully charge the battery, and so at our three busiest stations we have included this parking charge to ensure that more vehicles get the chance to charge per day. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Fast Charging Stations

More fast-charging stations are on the way! The State of California is investing heavily in the expansion of fast-charge infrastructure for electric vehicles. If you own an EV with a range of 150 miles or more, you can now complete a trip from Humboldt County to Sacramento, the Bay Area, and beyond.

Please note that RCEA is not responsible for the installation of these charging stations, but serves as a liaison between developers and the general public. Visit PlugShare to find out which stations are fully operational.

Both apps include key features like

  • Find available stations – see which stations are available to charge in real time
  • Flexible payment methods – Just hold your phone by the card reader on the station
  • Get notified – Receive notifications when your car is done charging, or when a station opens up
