Hey, I'm writing a blog and I'm not finding what I'm looking for. Once Petro Canada's EV stations start billing, does anyone know how they will bill? Pre-Authorize a credit card? Sign up for a membership and pre-add funds? Beuller? Beuller?

cheers

They’ll remain free for a time after the whole network is up so that they can gather information on how they’re used. Once they have that data, they’ll release their payment particulars going forward.

This is what one of the tech crew said, so take it with a grain of salt.

Chademo and CCS and no J1772? I don't think I will be paying $600 for a tesla chademo adapter, not sure when their CCS adapter will be coming out and how much that will cost either!
You can borrow a Chademo adapter free of charge, if you are a member of the Tesla Owners Club of Ontario. The club has 3 of them (so far).

Don't hold your breath for a CCS adapter. It's been a topic of discussion for a long time.....

Free until the new year, then they'll start charging based on time, at least in BC as they're not a registered utility provider and can't "sell" electricity, but can bill based on time. Maybe Petro-Canada will be exempt from that?

I doubt that will be the case.

the faq at the bottom of the Petrocan EV website states
"Our EV fast chargers are currently free to use. While there are a variety of pricing tactics employed in North America today, we will be implementing time based pricing for the use of our chargers in the new year."​

Wha?? You’re out of date. BC now ALLOWS anyone to sell electricity for charging stations.. https://www.bcuc.com/Documents/News...sRelease-BCUC-EV-Inquiry-ExemptionGranted.pdf
