Prices and billing for services
Can I switch between different plans if, for example, I plan a longer trip? When can I change the plan? What will the consequences be?
A change from the Energia Standard subscription plan to Energia Plus or Energia Max is possible at any time. The new plan is effective from the next day. The condition for changing the plan is to make a subscription fee in advance for the period from the next day in a given month until the end of a given month. The fee is calculated in proportion to the number of days of the subscription plan in a given month. In the case of using the Energy Plus or Energy Max plan, the subscription change is possible from the first day of the next month, however, the condition is to use the Energy Plus or Energy Max plan for at least one full month. This solution is very beneficial, for example during the holiday season, when we travel more often. When we use the Energy Standard plan, we can change the plan for Energia Plus or Energy Max on the day before the planned trip and enjoy reduced charges for 1 kWh by the end of the next month.
The data is stored by our billing partner, Braintree, which uses the highest standard of security to limit any risk associated with the use of card data. GreenWay does not have access to card details.
Yes. The invoice is issued in electronic form and sent to the e-mail address associated with your account once a month. The invoice includes the settlement of all charging sessions for the given month. In the future, the invoice will be issued after each charging session. Registered customers have access to the Client Zone, where all invoices and details of each charging session are located.
It depends on the amount of energy consumed per month. For those who use our network, the Energia Standard plan is occasionally the optimal solution. For customers charging from 50 to 200 kWh per month, the optimal plan is Energia Plus. Those who use more often should go to the Energy Max plan, which provides the lowest fees with a large amount of energy consumed per month – with 400 kWh of energy consumed per month. An additional benefit is a long time of a free standstill at the charger and lowers or no fees for additional services (eg for launching a charging session remotely by the operator).
Changing the plan may mean a reduction in service fees. It all depends on the amount of energy consumed monthly. For those who use our network, the Energia Standard plan is occasionally the optimal solution. For customers charging from 50 to 200 kWh per month, the optimal plan is Energia Plus. Those who use more often should go to the Energy Max plan, which provides the lowest fees with a large amount of energy consumed per month – with 400 kWh of energy consumed per month, the average. An additional benefit is a longer time of a free standstill at the charger and lower or no fees for additional services (eg for launching a charging session remotely by the operator).
If you use the Energy Standard plan, changing the subscription to Energia Plus or Energy Max will be effective from the next day. If you switch from the Energia Plus or Energy Max plan to another plan, it will be effective from the first day of the month. The condition, however, is to use the Energia Plus or Energia Max subscription plan for at least one full month. This means that if we change the subscription plan for Energia Plus or Energia Max during the current month, the next change will be effective from the first day of the next month following the current month. Example: On January 2, we change the plan for Energia Max. The Energy Max Plan is effective from January 3. On January 30, we’re commencing a plan change to Energia Plus. The Energy Plus plan is effective from March 1.
There is no fee for changing the subscription plan. However, it should be remembered that subscription fees in Energia Plus and Energia Max plans are calculated in advance. Thus, the condition for changing the plan from Energia Standard to Energia Plus or Energy Max is to pay the subscription fee for the current month. The fee will be charged in proportion to the number of days in the month in which the subscription will apply. The fee will be charged from the payment card registered on the Customer’s account.
The final price of the charging service is the sum of the charge for the energy used during charging and the eventual charge for charging time after a specified time limit.
Charging can only be paid for with a payment or credit card, which is entered during registration. Payment is automatically charged from the card after issuing the invoice. Currently, the invoice is issued once a month, including all sessions made during a given calendar month. In the future, the settlement will take place after each charging session.
The purpose of subscription plans is to reduce the charging costs of the GreenWay network for customers who often use our services. Thanks to this, it is possible to lower the fees even below the price offered so far.
Roaming allows you to use the chargers of partner networks abroad without having to register in networks operating in other countries. If you are a registered customer, thanks to our roaming partnerships and with our RFID card, you can travel freely throughout Europe. See where you can roam.
Roaming prices for all Roaming partners you can check in our mobile app or the Drover Zone. Fees for using our partners’ roaming services will be included in your monthly invoice. Payment will be taken from the card provided during registration.
Most of our chargers are equipped with two DC charging cables: CHAdeMO, CCS (Combo), and one for alternating current (AC) Type 2. GreenWay partner stations usually allow you to recharge with alternating current (AC) through Type 2. To use these, you usually need to have your own cable.
You can check the power of each connected in our mobile app or the Driver Zone, when clicking on the specific charger location.
The maximum charging power depends on many factors. These are: limitations resulting from the car’s technical capabilities, battery charge (the higher it is, the lower the charging power), the ambient temperature (in case of negative temperatures the charging power is lower), and charging several cars simultaneously on one charger.
What should I do if my plug does not match any cable in a GreenWay chargers? Is it possible to buy an adapter?
If the plug does not fit any of the connector types, you can use a special adapter. The most common is the Type 1 adapter to Type 2. You can buy them on the open market or ask your car manufacturer for one.
You can charge several cars simultaneously at all our stations. However, their number depends on the manufacturer of the charger. In the case of Efacec chargers, only one DC car (CHAdeMO or CCS) and one AC can charge at a time. In the case of Delta chargers, three cars can be charged simultaneously (2xDC and 1xAC).
Typically, recharging up to 80% of the battery capacity of a car such as the Nissan Leaf DC with a power of up to 50 kW takes up to 30 minutes. However, in reality, the charging time depends on many factors and it is difficult to clearly determine the time needed to complete it. These factors include, first of all, the selected type of charging (DC or alternating AC), battery capacity, state of charge, ambient temperature, and whether another car is charging at the same time.
The charging power decreases as the battery charge increases. When charging more than 80% of the battery capacity, the decrease of the pace and charging power is very rapid. The charging power will also decrease when another car is connected to the charger during the charging process.
Yes. Information about the charging time and the energy transferred is displayed on the charger screen. Remotely, you can follow the progress of charging from the mobile app and the Driver Zone after starting the charge using this tool.
No, the charger will not disconnect by itself. You have to finish charging using the RFID card or using the mobile app or the Driver Zone. Only then can you safely disconnect the cable from the car’s socket. There is no risk of disconnecting the car too late from the charger – the battery will not be overcharged because the battery management system is watching over it. However, if you leave the car connected to the charger for a long time, you can be billed an additional charge for minutes.
Yes, charging is possible even in unfavorable weather conditions, because our chargers are equipped with a protection system against external factors.
Yes, lower temperatures reduce the charging speed & power.
In these situations, you can call the police or the municipal police. Our parking spaces are marked with the D-18a sign to indicate that it is reserved for electric cars during charging. According to the regulations in force, this is a sufficient sign that the relevant services will react and even issue a mandate.
