Fees and payment

The charging session fee is $2 per hour from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and $1 per hour at all other times. The pricing is designed to manage demand for the EV spaces and to encourage multiple short-duration charging sessions per day (for example, campus visitors or commuters who may occasionally need to "top off" their battery, as opposed to an all-day charge for a single vehicle).

Payments are made via the ChargePoint network, which accepts payments via ChargePass Cards and contactless credit cards, or by phone using a standard credit card.
