Since May 11th of 2020, the progressive unconfinement measures allow us to take back our electric vehicles to journeys. Mobilized since the start of the epidemic, we act daily to maintain an operational recharging service while preserving the health of our employees and providers. In order to best support you during this health crisis, here are some tips to protect yourself and others when using public charging stations.
A new basic for your electric car: the hydro alcoholic solution!
The most effective way to prevent the transmission of all viruses is the hand washing. We therefore advise you to favor the use of a hydro alcoholic solution before and after using a charging station. You usually use a personal charging cord? A simple passage of disinfectant wipe on the 2 plugs allows you to store it safely in your car trunk.
Maintain a safety distance when you are recharging on charging stations
At some charging points or charging stations, you may have to connect your electric vehicle alongside other users. In this case, we recommend that you maintain a safety distance of at least one meter from other EV drivers.
Avoid monopolizing the charging station to permit the refill of other users
The charging station delivers essential energy for any EV driver. Thus, we advise you to favor “small recharges” according to your needing for mobility during the day. Spending more time than necessary on an charging point can prevent other users to benef from energy which can be useful for essential trips. Moreover, according to the models of electric cars, the last percentages of battery are always much longer to recover, no matter the power of the charging station!
