CAPE MAY – The city has adopted an ordinance that sets fees for publicly accessible municipal charging stations for electric vehicles. The fees are in addition to any parking meter fees that might apply to the parking space.

The ordinance sets the fee for a level 2 charger at $1.75 per hour for the first four hours, and then $3.50 per hour thereafter. Level 3 chargers are billed at $0.40 per kilowatt hour, with an additional $0.25 per minute after one hour. These are initial fees that can be altered by resolution of the City Council.

The ordinance makes it a violation to park an electric or nonelectric vehicle in a municipal charging parking space when it is not connected to the charging equipment.

Private charging stations are not bound by the fee schedule; their owners can set fees in accordance with applicable state and federal regulations. For private charging stations, the fees must be posted on the equipment or adjacent to the parking space.
