NewsEV Charging dedication

After worship on Sunday, March 10, we’ll gather on the Dixie Trail lot to dedicate our new dual plug charging station. CUCC is excited to officially introduce to the community the newest stride in helping lower its environmental footprint. Join us whether you own an EV or are looking to purchase. We’ll provide insight on our charging station journey as well as how the station impacts CUCC and the surrounding community.

In the brief ceremony, we will thank NC DEQ for their generous grant to partially fund the charger. Our pastor, Rev. Dr. Lacey Brown will then provide words of thanksgiving and blessing. Finally, we will cut the ribbon, and answer any questions on use of the charger.

 

LEVEL 2 (240 volt) electric vehicle charging station

LEVEL 2 chargers can charge a BEV to 80 percent from empty in 4-10 hours and a PHEV in 1-2 hours.


BEV Charging

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

Powered solely by an electric battery, with no gas engine parts. Most BEVs are capable of fast charging and LEVEL 2 charging.


Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)

Similar to a Hybrid, but with a larger battery and electric motor. Has a gas tank and a charging port. Can charge by using LEVEL 2 chargers.

Connecting your vehicle via the EV Connect app

To begin a charging session, use the app to scan the QR CODE on the charging station or enter the station ID BTC1872 which is below the QR CODE. The ID tells EVConnect which charging station you are using. You’ll then be instructed to connect your vehicle by unplugging the connector from the station and plugging it into your vehicle’s charging port. The station shows the cost of charging on the screen before you plug in. The app will then ask how you would like to pay for your charge. With an iPhone, the options are credit card (if you’ve stored one in your account), Apple Pay or PayPal.

While you are here, we invite you to refresh your spirit in nature. Take a meditative stroll through the Memorial Meditation Garden (nestled along Wade Avenue). Watch for a nesting pair of swifts in the wooden chimney opposite the charging station. Enjoy the native plant gardens or find a shady or sunny bench to relax.
