Electric vehicle owners can now breathe easier as more and more retail establishments put up dedicated charging stations/hubs in the country to keep your vehicle topped up, as part of the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act or Republic Act No. 11697.

Yes, it even supports the GB/T standard so Chinese EV drivers won't have to bring an extension cord. SCREENSHOT FROM AYALA LAND

Several Ayala Land properties in Luzon have joined that growing list of charging hubs in the country, but what makes this special is that these hubs will have 22kW AC and 60kW DC fast chargers from Greenstrum (for One Ayala and Circuit Makati) that support both CCS/Type 2 and GB/T connectors.

This means that owners of Chinese EVs like the Weltmeister W5 have a place to directly plug in, and other standards can utilize the chargers with the appropriate adapters. And the service is free (for now, we suppose).

Some charging stations also support 60kW DC fast charging if you're in a hurry. SCREENSHOT FROM AYALA LAND
