Find an electric charging station near my location

The new generation of electric cars have a longer range than their predecessors had. However, just like a traditional car, you will still need to take into account when you need to “refuel” again. There are fewer charging stations to be found near your location than old-fashioned gas stations so some preparation for your drive is definitely advisable. Where is the nearest charging station, what does it cost to park there and how do you find a charging station near you are serious questions you’ll want answers to before you leave. The following tips will help you get started safely.

What does parking at a nearby charging station cost?

Not every charging station in your area is free to use. In large cities, you may have to pay for the time you are parked at the particular charging station. So you pay just like parking for a normal car at the parking meter or through a parking permit. More and more free charging stations are appearing at large retail chains. If you park your electric car at these stores you can charge your car for free. But please be polite enough to move your car when it is charged. That way, other electric drivers can also use this charging station nearby.

Using a charging station near your location

The ability to charge your electric vehicle at home does not mean that you never have to use a public charging station near where you are at the time. As soon as the battery starts to run out, you will need a charging station to get back home.

Many municipalities are aware of the need for electric car charging stations and are placing more and more charging plazas in the neighborhood where several cars can charge simultaneously. Some of these charging stations are equipped with fast chargers so that you can continue your journey as quickly as possible. Some companies’ charging stations installed in your area may require you to have a so-called charging card before you can use it, so keep this in mind when looking for a charging station.

How do you find a charging station or charging plaza near you while on the road?

With a route planner, you can safely travel to the destination you have. Almost every model of electric car now has such software that is easy to use. A good planner shows all the facilities along the route you are driving, charging stations in the area also belong to this category. So you make it easy on yourself and don’t have to deviate from your route any further than necessary to charge your car en route.

And because you know whether the selected charging station charges your car quickly or normally, you know exactly how long it will take before you arrive at your destination. Once near your destination, you can even use the route planner to find paid or free parking spaces.
