When you own a new electric car, you must also apply for a charging station. Electric cars may be the best and cleanest invention of the century, but without an electric charging station, you won’t make it off the street. You may be responsible for an electric charging station yourself, but in many cases the municipality is responsible for this. Opcharge can give you a helping hand in applying for a public charging station. An application for a charging station is completely free of charge.
Public charging stations are charging stations that anyone can use to charge their electric car. However, at public charging stations you will need to use your own charging cable. This is not necessary at fast charging stations, where the cables are already present.
The Netherlands currently has over 81,000 public charging stations and this number will continue to rise at a rapid pace in the coming years. More and more car owners are switching to “green” electric cars and so the demand for public charging stations is also increasing. The Netherlands has set a goal of accommodating 500,000 charging stations in public spaces in three years.
The conditions for applying for charging stations are different in each municipality. Yet all municipalities have one common denominator when it comes to requesting charging stations. You can apply for a public charging station if you cannot install one yourself. This means that you do not have the ability to park on your property and install a charging station. Also for all other cases you can always call on Opcharge. We will then look at your situation and check with the relevant municipality whether you are eligible to apply for a charging station.
If you want to install a charging point on your own property, you do not have to notify the municipality. In this case, you arrange the installation of charging points on your property yourself with the supplier of the charging points. We are currently only realizing charging stations on our own premises for businesses.
