What type of charge station is being provided?

How do I activate the charge station?

Using the EV Connect app for the Level 2, GE DuraStation, you can either scan the QR code or enter the station ID that is on the charge station. Once you have confirmed to start a charge session, simply plug the power cable into your vehicle. Your vehicle is charging when the LED light has changed from green to amber color.

What if I have an EV Connect account but not a smart phone? Can I still use the stations?

What is the cost to charge my vehicle?

Charging is $1.00 per hour, connected time. Although your charge session has completed, your account will continue to be debited, until you have disconnected your vehicle from the connector. Please be courteous and move your vehicle once your charge session has completed.

Will I be notified when my charging session is complete or interrupted?
