The price of kWh is already falling again at Electra. The network also announced new stations on the Vinci highways.
After having blocked its price in 2022, the Electra network had to resolve to increase it on January 16, 2023. The French company had no other choice but to pass on the surge in electricity prices. The price per kWh had thus gone from 0.44 to 0.54 €.
But good news, we discovered on the site of the French firm that this price had already been revised downwards. With a bank card or the Electra application, it now costs €0.49 per kWh.
It remains to find an Electra terminal! The network is still sparse, but it is developing at a good pace. In mid-January, Electra had 40 stations in France, representing just over 200 fast charging points. The company has already signed numerous partnerships to install terminals, for example in the car parks of Jardiland.
Charging stations: Ionity opens two giant stations on the A7 motorway
This week, Electra has just announced that it will install and manage seven new charging stations at motorway service areas in the Vinci network. 112 new points will be deployed between Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse.
There will thus be 14 charging stations on the Latitude 45 area, on the A7, north of Valence towards Lyon, 12 charging stations on the Garonne area (bidirectional) located on the A62 between Agen and Toulouse , 8 terminals on each of the Carcassonne Arzens rest areas (North and South), on the A61 near Carcassonne or even 4 terminals on the Vitrolles rest area, at the entrance to the A7 from Marseille.
These will be high-power charging points up to 300 kW.
