Charging using the DC fast charger includes a $4.95 activation fee for the first 20 minutes of charging and 25 cents per each additional minute. Charging using the Level 2 chargers includes a $1 per hour fee for the first three hours and 10 cents per each additional minute.

In addition to developing public charging infrastructure, the company offers EV charger rebates for business and residential customers and a special rate for EV customers. The company also recently rolled out dozens of plug-in electric hybrid vehicles as part of its statewide fleet and supports public engagement annual events such as the Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Roadshow and National Drive Electric Week.
