The billing is linked to the length of time your vehicle is connected, regardless of your vehicle's power draw on the system.  This is to encourage individuals to not park in the spaces all day.  UCR Faculty, Staff and Students will receive a $1 per hour discount by adding the connection code UCREV1 to their ChargePoint account.

Charger Location and Connection Information

Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations are available in Lots 1, 6, 9, 15, 24 and 30.  All chargers are part of the ChargePoint network. A ChargePoint card is required to use the stations. You can create an account at www.chargepoint.com.

You must have a valid UCR Parking Permit and initiate a charging session through the adjacent ChargePoint Station to park in the EV space.

UCR Faculty, Staff and Students will receive a $1 per hour discount by adding the connection code UCREV1 to their ChargePoint account.  Once you have logged in to ChargePoint's system, click on the title "Connections".  At the top of the Connections screen, you will see a place to enter the Connection code.  Enter the Connection code and right click to apply.  You will be asked for your UCR employee ID or student ID number.  After you have submitted your application, TAPS will be notified and asked to approve the application before the discount is applied.  Requests are usually processed the next business day.

As a reminder, ChargePoint will bill you for your usage based on the length of time your vehicle is connected to the charging station so please make sure you move your vehicle accordingly.
