In a recent article on Ars Technica, we learned some new things about EA's status and some things that are upcoming:
- A total of 484 sites will be operational by the end of the year (this is some slippage, it had been July). Out of the these, the design and engineering is complete for all but two. About 30 sites are still submitting permits; 370 sites have all permits and are in construction; 267 have had construction completed, and 158 are already in use.
- EA will also be implementing ISO 15118 plug-and-charge by the end of the year.
- EA will have a membership plan, at about $4 a month for reduced prices.
- EA will have tired pricing. 0-75kW for older EVs like the Chevrolet Bolt or Nissan Leaf, as well as any Tesla using a CCS adapter dongle; 76kW-125kW; and 126kW-350kW. The tier is determined by car model, not the user or battery SoC.
- An app (that you can use for NFC authorized charging) looks to be pretty much done and ready to go.
