    I've seen no free evgo stations, and several evgo stations that did not work. The ChargePoint stations are consistently functioning. One of the problems I see with these charging stations, is the inconsistency of pricing. You can pay as little as $0.18 per kWh, and as much as $10 per kilowatt hour!!! The new thing seems to be "flat charges" per hour, which is where you get the shaft with your Prime, at $5.00 and $10.00 per session. The biggest offenders were the Norm Reeves dealers; pass it on!! Another problem is the availability of charging systems my car can't use, while excluding systems compatible with the Prime. Yeah, my 2-year-old Prime is "obsolete"!!

    It does seem to leave you exposed in public...which may be illegal.
