Infinity levies tariffs on electricity charging for EVs effective from June 28th 2022
Infinity, Egypt’s leading renewable energy solutions provider, announced that in accordance with the ministerial decree No14 of 2022 issued by the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy on Jan 26th, 2022, EV users will now have to pay for electricity charging for EVs across all charging stations. The tariffs will be effective from June 28th, 2022, and as per government guidelines, customers will have to pay 1.89 EGP/kWH for AC charging and 3.75 EGP/kWH for DC charging, respectively. Customers can make the payments through their InfinityEV app, where they can recharge their credit balance using their debit or credit cards. Then, they can charge their EVs by scanning the InfinityEV app on their phones, at any of the chargers, across all stations while having the required credit balance in their app wallets. Existing users who are still using the Infinity charging cards will have to link their cards to the app, to continue availing the charging services.
Speaking of the announcement, Mr. Shams Abdel Ghaffar, Managing Director, Infinity EV Division, said, “As per the regulations put in place by the government, we will begin levying tariffs on EV users for charging their EVs. We have ensured that the process remains simple, giving our customers ease of access to the largest network of electric charging for EVs.
