Fortune Electric has disclosed it has set up its first EV (electric vehicle) parking lot in combination with in-house-developed power charging facilities in Taipei.

The facilities consist of charging piles, a lithium battery-based energy storage system, and a rooftop PV system, Fortune said.

The parking fee is NT$30 (US$1.01) per hour, and charging is priced at NT$6.5/kWh for AC and NT$9.5/kWh for DC, Fortune noted.

Fortune has set up many EV charging stations around Taiwan and used a cloud-based management platform to operate them. The company aims to increase the number of power charging stations to 150 by year-end 2020, including five fast-charging ones near highways.

There were 2,017 EVs sold in the Taiwan market during January-May 2020.
