While not an urgent issue, finding a free public charging station is not difficult, and it provides new incentives to buy a new car, lowering the overall cost of ownership. Currently, Tier 3 public charging stations are usually not free because they usually offer many amenities. However, there are many free charging stations available for your daily commute, and we'll show you how to find them.
Free Level 2 charging stations are not that uncommon, and you can find them in many places outside of California, but network charging stations offer 20-30 miles per hour, depending on the level of EV adaptation. Again, these are J1772 plugs, and all EV manufacturers offer these adapters to buy new EVs, while the network providers make money by providing advertising through the big GK screens installed at the charging stations. The normal charging limit at these stations is two hours.
Many EV charging apps have helpful listings that can be found through the website. To take advantage of this directory, you can register to find a pre-prepared list of all charging stations that offer free charging.
This list includes fast charging stations, Level 2 charging stations, and even 120V charging stations. Most free charging stations are Level 2 and J1772 and are located in shopping areas and city centers. They are also very convenient when visiting city centers, such as during hockey tournaments and holidays. Convenient Level 2 charging - paid or free - can ease the stress of driving or renting an electric car on vacation.
Free Level 2 charging can be found at the time of purchase. Currently, free rates are very differentiated and gasoline prices are rising.

At this point, most charging stations have two Level 2 plans. Most smaller businesses have only one station.
The hotel charging process includes a code that can be registered through the app, allowing other drivers to notify you. Alternatively, the hotel manager can help you, but at this time many of them do not know that they have this option.
As you can see, many major operators also offer charging stations, most of which are free.
Again, use a popular charging app or VE B's website map to filter hotels to find charging stations. Check the "stay" and "pay" filters, as the "pay" filter is required for visitors, not guests, which may prevent free charging for hotel guests.
Also, many hotel chains post information about their stations online. Or hotel managers can help, but currently many of them are not aware that they have this option.
