I thought you were specifically talking about this station. This is the first station in the West Coast Clean Transit Corridor. The goal is the install 27 charging stations designed for HD vehicles along I-5 from San Diego to Vancouver, BC spaced roughly 50 miles apart.

Nothing in the goal says they will be only provided by hydro or geothermal or even renewable electricity in general. However, all 3 states along I-5 have cleaner energy than average and have specific goals to continue transitioning to larger percentages of renewable energy. That is one of the good things about EVs - as the grid gets cleaner your car gets cleaner.
