1. EV Charge: Zero Net
ZeroNet is the national charging network that delivers what EV drivers need. It neutralises range anxiety through simple, robust and reliable Charging Stations at locations drivers can trust. Drivers can eat, play, work or sleep while topping up their vehicles.
Unlike other networks, drivers don't need to register, pay monthly fees or carry smart cards. The essence of ZeroNet is strictly pay-as-you-go. Drivers can simply pull up and plug in, trusting in charging stations that work every time.
2. EV Social Group: Electric Cars
Electric Cars is a socila media group on Facebook for EV Lovers! Our goal is to help showcase the future of the car industry with electric vehicles & have a fun time doing it. The future has arrived. We will be highlighting all the ins and outs of electric cars.
3. EV Tip: Smart Phone App
Running an EV? There’ll be a car maker app for that, too. Whether it’s checking the level of charge in the battery, locking or unlocking the doors or telling the car when to start charging, a smartphone app will enhance the experience of running an EV.
There are useful third party apps too, including the Zap-Map EV charging app and Google Maps, with the latter including an electric vehicle charging page. Courtesy of Just Go EV
