Tesla Quietly Jacks Up Supercharging Rates In U.S.
https://insideevs.com/tesla-quietly-raises-u-s-supercharging-rates/
Several recent messages on various Tesla-related social media pages indicate that there’s been a sudden and unexpected increase in Supercharging rates, which have more than doubled in some states.

Yet Tesla insists that Supercharger are not profit makers.

InsideEVs received a recent tip that pointed out that Tesla Supercharger rates more than doubled in Washington and Oregon. If you go to Tesla’s website and simply check the price quote for your state, you should see the obvious increase. However, at the time of this writing, there’s no indication from the automaker that this has occurred, nor was there any advance warning, as far as we can tell.

In Washington, the price jumped from .11/kWh to .25/kWh. This accounts for a significant percentage above typical residential costs. Prices in Virginia jumped to .21/kWh, rates in Illinois have increased over 60 percent, to .25/kWh, and California is up to .26/kWh. . . .

Perhaps this is another attempt by Tesla to discourage Supercharger “misuse.” Basically, we mean the people are only supposed to be using the Superchargers for long trips. However, this isn’t a good plan when considering those that count on the new urban chargers.

There's a map showing the old rates by state, and a link to the new ones ditto.

Great ... as long as it is great than (>) owners home rates and less than (<) gasoline equivalent then people will not abuse the Superchargers. Perfect.

Plus the Superchargers cannot be used for commercial usage (taxi, limo, etc) any more.

No one should be surprised to see this happen, it was not sustainable, but it should have been more transparent and announced a good while ago.

The prices are still quite reasonable and this should help free up some congested charging locations in urban areas.

When I saw that article I was surprised they didn't mention the "way back" replay at supercharge.info. Just go there and click on "Map Options" - it's at the bottom of the menu.

I'm pleased to see that Boulder CO is finally under construction. It will be nice to be able to drive directly to/from Boulder without having to deal with Denver traffic. Tesla is even building a sales and service center near Boulder (in Superior).

Now they need to get started on Estes Park so it's ready by summer, and they also need one in Granby or Grand Lake to provide access to R.M. N.P. from the other end of Trail Ridge road. I see they've also got permits for the I-94/I-29 to Winnipeg route, at long last.
