Save The Bay believes everyone, from humans to wildlife, should have a place to call home. But with our focus on Bay restoration, climate change, and …


The electric vehicle charging company Volta typically receives the same question when they say they provide “free fuel” at their more than 140 charging stations around the Bay Area, “What’s the catch?” They will happily reply, “There is none!” Volta pays for the power you put in your EV with digital ad screens on their chargers at convenient locations like Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Volta generously donated ad space to Save The Bay in March, so we sat down with Jen Capasso and Nina Rush from Volta to learn more about how they are helping people ditch fossil fuels …
