Richmond improves access to EV charging stations

⚡️Use it then move it. Richmond City Council approved bylaws last night (Mon, Jan 13) aimed at improving access to City-owned electric vehicle (EV) charging stations by introducing hourly charging fees that will come into affect on Sun, Mar 1, 2020.

⏳By applying hourly fees, users are encouraged to charge their vehicle and then move it to make room for other users. The fees were calculated on a cost recovery basis.

⏳Users will pay only for the time they are actually plugged in on a minute-by-minute basis.
