Τhe e-charge service is offered by EAC to
electric vehicle owners based in Cyprus. With this service the owners of
electric vehicles will have access to safe and reliable electric vehicle
charging in public places where chargers have been installed.
The electric vehicle owner must visit any
Customer Service Center of EAC to sign the service agreement contract and
receive the RFID card which will give him/her direct access to all the chargers
that have been installed or will be installed by EAC in the future.
The charging system infrastructure is
controlled and managed by the Non-Regulated Activities Unit and monitors the
charging of electric vehicle throughout the duration of the charging. The
electric vehicle charging stations installed by EAC are using Mode 3 charging
with two-way communication between the vehicle and the charging station
throughout the duration of the charging period. There are two (2) Type 2
sockets in each charging station in accordance with the international standards
and recommendations of the European Commission and Eurelectric.
Each user of the system will be charged
€25.00 on the first invoice and invoices will be sent to owners of electric
vehicles every two months. If the RFID card is lost or the electric vehicle
owner requires an additional card, then they need to contact the Non-Regulated
Activities Unit, at EAC Head Offices to reissue or issue an additional card.
The semi-fast charging stations installed
by EAC allow charging of electric vehicle up to 21kW (3-Ph). In each charging
station there are two (2) Type 2, charging plugs and can serve two
vehicles simultaneously at full load.
