2. At public charging stations
Normally you can find them in office complexes, shopping centres, hotels and large supermarkets.
They are known as opportunity charging stations and are the ideal place to recharge your electric car while you do other tasks such as going to work, shopping or having a meal in a restaurant. One of their advantages is that they are often free for users of electric cars, as they are an added-value service.
3. Reserved parking spaces
In many cities in Spain it is possible to reserve a parking space that includes a charging station and 160 kWh of energy (about 1,000 kms) included in the monthly rent.
If you have one of the PARKELECTRIC places near your home or place of work, this is a very practical option if you can't or don't want to install the station in your home.
4. Roadside charging stations
Roadside charging stations are power supply points where you can charge your electric car. They are very useful, above all on long trips.
European plans to electrify cars include the installation of electric charging stations inside conventional petrol stations, as well as the creation of charging parks.
These are usually fast charging stations which operate at a higher power than domestic charging stations. That is why it is important for your electric car to be compatible with charging power above 150 kW of direct current.
Do I need to have a higher power limit on my contract if I want to charge my car at home?
Normally you don't need a higher power limit to charge your electric car at home. However, we do recommend it highly if you really want to enjoy the full capacity of your batteries.
