Sacramento International Airport announced this week it has installed new-generation electric vehicle charging stations on each floor of the parking garage that serves passenger terminals A and B.

There are two chargers on each level, suitable for newer electric cars such as the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf, officials said. Use of the stations is free.

Travelers who are charging up can leave their cars at the stations for the duration of their trip. The charger shuts off when the vehicle battery is fully replenished.

The airport also plans to install four chargers in the daily overflow lot in July.

The airport has charger adapters at the stations for older model electric vehicles.

The program is being funded from a California Energy Commission grant.
