What are the opportunities for municipalities to collect charging fees?
In the general practice of Lithuania, there are various toll options. The fee can be charged for parking time, for the amount of energy used during charging, for one-time charging, etc.

The station itself is technically adapted to accept payment from the customer using mobile  apps . The stations do not have integrated card readers. Regarding the possibilities of accepting technical tolls, we recommend consulting directly with the manufacturer of the station – ” Elinta charge “.

Who can operate the stations and profit from the tolls?
Stops are handed over to municipalities to use them free of charge, so the municipality must be the beneficiary of the charges for operating the stops. The municipality can choose the provider of operator services independently, but the stations cannot be transferred to private individuals or companies for operation and profit from tolls.

For all technical questions related to the stations themselves or their installation, we recommend contacting the manufacturer of the stations – the Lithuanian company ” Elinta charge “.
