Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging
The Monroe Parking Garage introduces Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations. ChargePoint EV Charging Stations are located on levels 1 and 2 of the garage. For additional questions, please contact the Westfield Concierge Team.
What is ChargePoint:
ChargePoint is a nationwide network of electric vehicle charging stations. The chargers come with a standard J1772 plug, allowing them to charge any car on the market today, including Tesla. Each station provides customers up to 7.2kW of power. This will give drivers an average of 25 miles of range per hour of charge.
To use these stations ChargePoint has a free mobile app that helps you find an available station and start charging. You can also sign up and receive a FREE ChargePoint card and activate it, use any credit card that has an RFID chip, Apple Pay, Pay Pal and Android Pay.
