Electrify Canada announced a new station-specific, kilowatt-hour (kWh) based pricing structure at charging stations nationwide. The new pricing structure will take effect on January 9, 2024.
The new kWh pricing will provide a more fair and transparent experience for electric vehicle drivers across Electrify Canada’s public DC fast charging network. Customers will be billed based on the energy used to charge their EV, eliminating time-based charges for energy. Electrify Canada’s new billing structure aligns to recent regulatory changes that now allow for energy-based pricing at applicable DC fast charging stations.
“Electric vehicle owners like the transparency of kilowatt-hour pricing – letting them pay for the amount of energy used to charge their EVs,” said Robert Barrosa, president and CEO of Electrify Canada and Electrify America. “We’re pleased to be able to offer a simpler and fairer billing structure to EV drivers across the Electrify Canada network.”
As part of this evolution, the transition to station-specific pricing with rates varying by location will reflect local market influences in order to continue providing the highest level of service across the network.
Customers will still be able to save 20% on charging (excluding idle fees) across the Electrify Canada network by signing up for a Pass+ membership at the cost of $7 per month. The simplest way to access these new competitive prices is by downloading the Electrify Canada mobile app. EV drivers can find a charging station, view the station pricing, identify the number of available chargers, begin a charging session, and track its progress – all from the mobile app.
Specific pricing information is available on the Electrify Canada mobile app.
