Public charging stations fall under two categories: Networked and Non-Networked. Networked stations have internet connections and allow the owner to control access to the station, charge a fee for service and print usage/maintenance reports among other features. They range from $8,000-$10,000 to purchase. Non-Networked units do not have internet connections and cannot be controlled. They range from $2,000-$4,000 to purchase.
