We all love our EVs, but let's take a minute and talk about that critical piece of ownership, EV charging, and simple actions we can all take to show our appreciation.
First, the WVEAA would encourage everyone that uses public charging to provide positive feedback to charging hosts letting them know that you appreciate their effort to provide charging and what else you may have done while visiting their charger. Did you charge and buy products in their store? Did you charge at a library or farmers market and checked out a book or visited vendors? Let them know directly on their website or Facebook page. And, always leave feedback on charging apps or sites like PlugShare, ChargePoint, etc.
Second, if your experience was not the best for some reason, provide polite, constructive feedback as well. Was the charger inoperative, powered down, cable frayed, plug broken, parking spot blocked, etc.? Leave feedback to let the host know that the charger needs service and how the experience could be improved. If it's not obvious who is hosting the charger, check PlugShare.
Lastly, as EV owners we should be setting the best example as electric ambassadors. Make sure you always roll up the cord, holster the plug, pick up any visible trash and dispose of it, and move your vehicle promptly when finished charging. Always demonstrate proper EV etiquette!
