Shell RechargePlus: Managed Smart Charging for Electric Vehicles
Shell’s EV charging service uses an intelligent app to optimize charging sessions to provide cost advantages and ease of use.
Shell and Electric Mobility
Shell is excited to launch our electric vehicle program that will advance adoption of electric vehicles in California through the deployment of EV charging infrastructure at commercial, retail, public and government locations as well as multi-unit residential dwellings.
Shell is supporting the transition to electric vehicles by looking at how EV charging can be successfully integrated to the power grid. We have developed a new EV smart charging service called Shell RechargePlus that allows the charging of vehicles to be shifted to times when it would be most beneficial for the power grid and that will provide cost advantages for customers.

Our hardware comes with a minimum three-year limited warranty which can be extended to five years for a small fee.
Shell is pleased to offer some of the best prices, value and service for our customers within the PG&E EV Charge Network Program. Overall pricing is a function of the number of chargers installed at a location but the following indicative price examples provide an insight into our value:
Wall Mount EV-RS Charger with Linux Processor : $879 per unit
Ground Mount Pedestals (can hold one or two units) : $426 per pedestal
Communications Router and Modem Set-Up* : $1,064
Monthly Data Plan* : $20
*Communications costs along with the data plan charge are spread out over every 10 units in a deployment so that the incremental costs per charging port is close to $108.
