Payment and Pricing

There are three ways to pay:

  1. Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, AMEX) - available at a number of sites. More planned soon when they become available.
  2. Account with RFID swipe card (ideal for fleets or commercial users). Contact us to apply.
  3. Chargefox app. The app can be downloaded from

Pricing at all sites is based on the amount of electricity used. Prices are displayed on the charger.

  • The energy charge pays for electricity used: Current prices are listed below.
  • Parking fees. Parking fees at Devonport are paid on exit from the car park, with the first 30 minutes being free.
    At the following 'pay and display' sites the Council parking fee is included while charging. You will not get a parking fine while actively charging.

If you are parked in a designated EV charging bay but not plugged in, or if you are plugged in but your charge session is not active, the Council parking enforcement officer may fine you for:

  • blocking the site, or
  • not paying for parking, or
  • both.

The Council receives all revenue from infringement notices paid.

Idle Fees: All sites now have an idle fee. If you do not move your vehicle within 10 minutes of completing your charge, you will be charged 50 cents per minute until you do move your vehicle. Note that this fee is not refundable for users whose vehicle have 'free charging' from their supplier.
