This is a big deal, as eVgo's prices were much too high before, and their QC sessions too short for bigger battery cars. The new (long-term) prices get them into the same cents/mile ballpark as many ICEs, albeit still higher than most HEVs:
. . . On Thursday, the nation's largest fast-charging network announced a new, simplified, and lower pricing system to address the last of those three problems.
EVgo's new prices apply to its more than 1,000 sites nationwide, and cut rates both for one-time users and network members. . . .

. . . There will be two options available: a new Pay As You Go rate and Membership. Both offer AC L2 charging for $1.50/hour, so the difference lies in DC fast charging.
The Pay As You Go doesn’t require anything in terms of session fees, monthly fees, etc. Depending on state, the prices are simply:
between $0.25 and $0.35 per minute
through June 2018, EVgo will offer a special promotional rate for chargers located in California of $0.20/minute
charging time has also been extended to 45 minutes
In case of Membership:
$9.99/month (acts as a pre-paid credit that is simply applied towards charging activity for that month)
between $0.18 and $0.21 per minute depending on charger location
through June 2018, EVgo will offer a special promotional rate for chargers located in California of $0.15/minute
charging time has also been extended to 45 minutes, and up to 60 minutes during off-peak hours (charges initiating between 8:00pm-5:59am).

The dropping of connection fees for PAYG is also very helpful. The main question is can they afford to do this and be profitable?
