Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, and the demand for charging stations is growing.

North Carolina’s electric cooperatives, including BEMC, are working to create a statewide network of EV charging stations, enabling more consumers in both rural and urban areas to adopt this technology. If you’re considering an EV purchase, click here to see how an EV could be beneficial.

To meet this need in our community, BEMC has installed eight EV charging locations in our service territory:

EV Charging Stations
  • Brunswick Forest, 1112 E. Cutlar Crossing, Level II Charger
  • Calabash, 1045 River Road, Level II Charger
  • Sunset Beach, 419 Sunset Blvd., Level II Charger
  • Ocean Isle, 44 East First St., Level II Charger
  • Holden Beach, 101 Jordan Blvd., Level II Charger
  • Shallotte, 123 Mulberry Street, Level II Charger
  • Boardman, 1029 Old Boardman Road, DC Fast Charger
  • Oak Island, 182 Southeast 46th St., Level II Charger

BEMC provides Level II chargers. Level II chargers typically take 4 to 6 hours and can charge hybrids and electric vehicles. 

Payment can be made through Chargepoint for Level II chargers. Those who are not signed up to use Chargepoint can call the number on the charging station, and a representative will collect payment information for one-time use. Once charging is complete, you will receive a receipt by email.
