    EVgo sent me an email about new pricing. I was hoping it would be more reasonable, but it looks like it's worse. The old price on Colorado was $0.30/min for DCFC, or $1.50/hr for L2. The new pricing says all charging is the same price, specifically "Pricing shown is for DCFC chargers and all new L2 chargers starting on September 16, 2021" so that means $18 per hour for level 2 charging. That's insane, and worse for Prius Prime drivers because our cars charge half as fast as most Level 2 EVs. Assuming it charges at the full 3.3kW, that's $5.45/kWh.

    a lot of public chargers ron on 208V vs 240V. So in those cases - charging is ~15% slower (thus more expensive)

    That looks reasonable for the mathematically challenged :LOL::ROFLMAO::D:p, still cheaper than a tank of gas (said, the mathematically challenged):cry:. Besides you got such a good deal on the Toyota - why shouldn't you supplement the Tesla and Nissan Leaf drivers:rolleyes::oops:. When they run out of electrons - they'll have to push their car to the charging station. (please add other car brands that can utilize a DCFC charger). I believe it's an optional upgrade for the Leaf.
