MARTINEZ — Cars that soak up volts rather than guzzle gas soon will have a third place to pull up to the pump in Contra Costa County.

Martinez is installing electric vehicle charging stations in three locations — at City Hall, at the Amtrak station and at Main and Court streets. The city will unveil the charging stations during a ceremony at 11 a.m. on Earth Day, April 22, at City Hall, 525 Henrietta St.

The chargers will accommodate 110-volt and 220-volt plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles. Motorists who bring a compatible plug-in vehicle to the ceremony will receive a card for 10 free charges.

Martinez joins Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, San Francisco and San Jose on the network run by Campbell-based Coulomb Technologies. To use the charging stations, motorists must subscribe to the firm's ChargePoint Network.

511 Contra Costa, a group which advocates "green commutes" such as carpooling, walking, cycling and taking public transportation, is paying for the charging stations with funds generated by a half-cent sales tax in Contra Costa County.
