What is an idle fee?

An idle fee is an additional charge that may be applied to your charging session when your vehicle stops charging and remains connected to the charging station.

This fee is intended to encourage drivers to unplug and move their vehicles after their charging session is complete so that the charging station remains available for other drivers to use.

Idle fees are charged per minute of idling, and the fee per minute and length of the grace period may vary depending on the specific charging station. This information can be found in the details of the charging station notes on the app. The total amount of the idle fee you may have incurred will be indicated on your charging receipt.
