That would be $22 for an hour charge (NOT on a plan) and I wouldn't be able to charge at 50kW for that whole hour. THAT is what gets me.I hear you on EVgo rates. But for someone who's on a trip and wants to charge and be on his way then it may well be worth it to pay extra for a much faster charge. And in that case a DC Fast Charge has no equal.
Sure, and if there were another DCFC available at a more reasonable price, then it's a no-brainer to choose it. But if I'm on a road trip and the EVgo is the only DCFC within a few hundred km, and if the alternative is sitting for 6 or 7 hours at a Level 2 charger - even if it's considerably cheaper - then I'll pony up the money. My time is worth something too.That would be $22 for an hour charge (NOT on a plan) and I wouldn't be able to charge at 50kW for that whole hour. THAT is what gets me.
I dunno. I think there's room for a leisurely pace that can accommodate stopping for an hour for lunch while fast charging, yet still not wanting to spend 4 hours at a Level 2 charger.If that is the case, I would rent a GAS car. Love my EV bet let's be realistic about it. If time is an issue then you would not drive an EV with limited range
Hi! If you're referring to ChargePoint Home (our home charging station), it is the first to be Energy Star certified!
ChargePoint Home standby power (powered with no vehicle connected) is 1.9 W and the CT4k standby is 7 W.Hi! If you're referring to ChargePoint Home (our home charging station), it is the first to be Energy Star certified!
A charger can become certified by being tested and proven to use energy efficiently in standby mode, when no vehicle is plugged in, and when the product is partially on.
Here's more on how EnergyStar recognizes efficiency in EV chargers, and more details about the ChargePoint Home certification.
I'll check with our team to see if there is a fact sheet available with specifics of draw, that I might send your way!
Would love to buy one but as a canadian we need it to be sold from canada in order to apply for rebate. Do you have canadian sales?
I am happy with my ChargePoint EVSE. I like that I can check on its charged through my iphone app.

Yes, I heard that the cost depends on the property where the charger is installed at. One of my employer's locations offers free charging for the first hour, and then charge by the hour for the time the charger is left plugged in past the free hour.That's it. We don't need Window$ on anything as there many other choices.
For ChargePoint, I used one in Concord, NH last month, so after holding my card close the charging station start and 5 hours later notice that the charge was free of charge!!!
It maybe free because the hotel pay for the electricty or don't know why but I loved it. Can be good if on the map by the apps or web site, free charging station have a different colors or shape.
