For the nearest charger headed towards Sacramento, see Fairfield in the Sacramento area list. There are also other chargers in Vallejo -- see the Bay Area list. No conductive stations here.

Driving directions:
From I-80, take the Columbus Parkway exit East, then turn right on Callaghan, then Left on Plaza Drive. Costco is on your left.
Note from Darell 6/30/09: Don't follow your GPS to this location. My 2009 Garmin maps still don't know about the Costco Driveway, and wanted me to go cross-country from a gated condo complex to the East.

Go to Google Local for driving directions to/and from any location, and to find points of interest.
