As electric vehicles become more popular, there is an increasing demand for some clarity on EV car charging. This is a practice that has only been around for a short time, so not everyone thinks about electric vehicle charging the same way. We’ve taken a moment to outline some of the etiquettes for EV car charging to help keep everyone happy and fully charged!
Top Tips For EV Car Charging
Don’t Park In EV Car Charging Places Unless You’re Charging
There are only so many EV car charging locations, so it is necessary for everyone to make the most out of them. Don’t park in a place with a charging station unless you are using it at the time. There are plenty of parking spots at green facilities like Canopy Airport Parking® for your electric vehicle.
Move Your EV After Charging
Once you have reached a full charge, it is time to move over and give the next person a chance to recharge. You wouldn’t use a gas station as a parking lot, so don’t use an EV car charging location as one either.
Take Care Of The Equipment
EV car charging locations are still relatively rare and they need to be taken care of so that they last a long time and that everyone can use them frequently for all of their charging needs. This means taking care of all the equipment and respecting the fact that it needs to be shared between all of the EV drivers.
Hybrid vs. Electric Vehicle?
This may be up to some debate, but some would say that an electric vehicle has priority at a charging station because they have no other alternatives. A hybrid can use gas if necessary, which means they are more versatile for getting around. However, a good rule of thumb is to always respect the line. Every has somewhere to go.
