Ending its free trial period since its launch, Thailand based PTT Oil and Retail Business operated, EV Station PluZ has declared to charge its EV users based on time of use (TOU) from August 1.
The on-peak TOU rate from 9am to 10pm will be 7.5 baht per unit of power while the off-peak rate from 10pm to 9am will be 4.5 baht.
PTT president and CEO Auttapol Rerkpiboon said the free trial period at PTT EV stations was expiring so fees will have to be collected.
He said that PTT OR currently has about 190 PTT EV stations across Thailand but this will be expanded to 450 by the end of the year.
The off-peak rate will extend for 24 hours during weekends and government holidays, EV Station Pluz announced.
To book charging time at PTT EV stations, motorists must download the EV Station PluZ app.
Each booking costs 20 baht but this fee is returned as a discount if motorists use the service within 10 minutes of booking.
