MobileNow! payment system
Last April, I was proud to announce the TWO New Chargers at Franco-Cité School in Ottawa.
Both SunCountryHighway electric vehicles chargers are now completely fully operational. You can find them on Plugshare. The address is 623 Smyth Rd.
The school board opted for the MobileNow! payment system for many reasons. It had to be user friendly and available 24 hours per day. The fees helps to finance the installation and operating costs. The province of Ontario asks the school board to be responsible with its public funding. This system does provide information about the charging stations usage. To this day, MobileNow! is only available in US$ funds.
This a pilot project for the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est. The more electric vehicles are present on our roads, the more we will need a well developed charging infrastructure.
Here are the steps to use this payment system.
1 – Download the MobileNOW! App on your cell phone.
2 – Create your account.
3 – Use credit card or Paypal for a pre-paid account.
4 – Enter location number from MobileNow! sticker on the SCH60 charging station or scan the QR code.
5 – Choose the duration needed. Different options are available.
6 – There is a 0.35$ convenience fee per usage for any duration.
7 – As the payment is approved, you have to activate the charging station by using the 8 number code followed by the #.
8 – For a two hour duration, the total with the convenience fee is 1.85 US$. For a one hour duration, the total is 1.10 US$.
