While charging your electric vehicle at home is likely the main way you charge your car, sometimes you need to take advantage of a public charging station.
Pfaff Subaru has created this page to help drivers around Guelph, Ontario, learn more about electric charging stations and how to charge your electric vehicle.
How to Charge Your Electric Vehicle
Charging an EV is easy—there are only three steps.
Step One: Choose Your Station and Plug In
When you arrive at an array of electric charging stations, you’ll likely have two options: a level two charging station or a DC Fast Charging Station. DC Fast Charging Stations are quicker than Level Twos. If you’re going to be in the area for a while, a Level Two is a good choice. Just looking for a quick charge? Go for the DC Fast Charger.
Plug in your EV once you’ve selected your station.
Step Two: Pay for Charging Session
You’ll need to pay for the charging session using a credit or debit card at this step.
Some charging stations are free, while others are pay-per-use. Certain stations charge per minute while others charge per hour, depending on the company that owns the charging station.
Step Three: Begin Charging
Your charging session will begin once you input your payment information and your vehicle is plugged in. You can choose to stick around while your car charges or return later.
