We at DRIVEtheARC are pleased to announce the introduction of a reservation system at our Pacific Pearl charging station located at November 20th. The service will commence in
November, 2018. We will send you a separate announcement to let you know the specific start date.
This new system offers DRIVEtheARC users with CHAdeMO plug-equipped EVs the convenience of reserving a charger at the Pacific Pearl station for use when the user arrives. One of the
two chargers at the Pacific Pearl station will be allocated for reservation use only. The reservation-only charger is identifiable with decals attached on.
Making a reservation is simple. You simply need to sign into your DRIVEtheARC account on your smartphone and follow the instructions to reserve a time at the Pacific Pearl station. Each
reservation is allotted 35 minutes. If the reservation-only charger is not being used and has not been reserved by another user, you can also make a reservation through the app for
immediate use upon arrival at Pacific Pearl station.
During our current “free charging” campaign, there is no fee to make a reservation or charge your vehicle. This may change in the future.
The reservation service will at first only be available at the Pacific Pearl charging station and only for EVs equipped with a CHAdeMO plug. Reservations may be made by [registered]
DRIVEthe ARC users only. All reservations are made via the DRIVEtheARC app.
Users will be instructed to exit the parking space adjacent to the charger immediately after the charging session ends. If a user fails to exit, then the space may not be available to a user
who has made a reservation.
