Embarcadero Center now has electric vehicle charging stations in the parking garages of all four buildings! The charging stations are ChargePro™ EV Charging Stations, developed and produced by SemaConnect, a National Leader in EV Charging. SemaConnect’s ChargePro™ EV charging stations are smart and sophisticated, but simple, safe and reliable to use. In order to charge an electric vehicle, users unplug the connector from the station into the inlet on the electric vehicle. When the bright LED lights turn from blue to green, the vehicle is charging. When finished, users unplug the connector from the vehicle and return it to the station. It’s as easy and safe as plugging-in a cell phone.

The ChargePro™ EV charging stations are wirelessly networked into SemaConnect’s SemaCharge™ Network. SemaConnect has developed multiple charging options for more convenience to EV drivers.

Pricing: $2.00/hour for the first four hours and $6.00/ hour after  (This is the charging price only- fees associated with parking in the garage are charged separately)
