EVs are permitted to park in the Staff Only area, per Ed Huestis. Fairfield is the official address, but some mapping software puts this location in Suisun City. Great location near I-80 about 13 miles W of Vacaville. In the summer, the shade is the best part of this charging area! Each space has low profile bump stops.

Driving directions:
Exit I-80 at Suisun Valley Road, and head North. The Solano College campus is about 1/2 mile up on the right side. Take the last main entrance into the campus (there are three or four), or enter any of them and immediately turn left and drive on the campus frontage road to the last (giant) parking lot. The chargers are located next to the theater.
Go to Google Local for driving directions to/and from any location, and to find points of interest.

How to find the charging station location once you have found the site:
The chargers are located next to the theater, building 1200, the largest building on the campus. There are signs for the theater. This is a "Staff only" parking area, but EVs may park here. The chargers are between the handicap spaces, underneath some very large shade trees, in front of a very large transformer. As you enter the parking lot, the chargers are on the right edge of the lot. Each of the four spaces has an EV ONLY sign. See http://www.solano.edu/ for more information, campus and area maps, etc.
