Electric vehicles aren’t exactly everywhere, but that’s not stopping Elektromotive from positioning themselves for future profits. The firm has just unveiled the first-ever billable charge station for EVs. It’s a three phase chargepoint that can supply up to 32 amps at 240V.
The station is called the Elektrobay and is equipped with a 2-way GSM service called EBConnect, which lets users with specialized key fobs and the like just wave their key, get a charge and be invoiced later. The new billing system will be installed in all 160 Elektrobay units in the UK.
