The network of charging stations in North America is growing every day. While the majority of Level 2 (240v – SAE J1772 plug) public charging stations are free to use, many require drivers to join a service network to access the stations. Members are offered various ways to authorize the use of a charging station, such as scanning a member card at the desired charging station. EV owners can obtain a member card by registering online with the charging service networks. Some networks’ stations can also be authorized through a smart phone app or a credit card. There are currently three predominant networks in B.C.: ChargePoint, VERNetwork, and GreenLots (for DC Fast Chargers). Learn more about service networks and membership options in BC.
