I've not paid a cent so far, but if the above is correct I'll have to go back to unplugging before 30 minutes is up. I may try another 45 minute night session, just to see. Then as the weather warms back up I'll return to L-2/L-2 charging only.

$0.20/min was likely non sustainable, $0.27/min is probably too.

I think they are relying on the monthly fee plan, and just using the minute charge to pay for power and maintenance.

Quite possible. Perhaps Nissan's No Charge to Charge and similar programs with other manufacturers help too.

For CA, that’s just for the LA area. Prices are higher elsewhere in the state: 32 cents/minute for San Diego and 30 cents a minute outside of LA and San Diego.

Didn't realize the pricing was different. Still it's hard to imagine 32c/min makes for a profitable business model with the energy cost and operational overhead.

I haven't paid a cent either since I've never used EVgo yet. :) In fact, ever since I started driving an EV at end of July 2013, I've yet to pay even a penny for any paid public or workplace charging. :)

My current Leaf has no CHAdeMO and I hope to sell it within the next month or so. My new Bolt has SAE Combo so I might be using that inlet... Will be looking for cheaper stations, where possible. But, over here in the Bay Area, it seems that EVgo is one of the more common SAE Combo providers, if not the most common.

I don't think I've ever paid either, between my Chargepoint card and NCTC. I did have to put $25 in 'escrow' at Chargepoint, 5 years ago.

Indeed. When I signed up for ChargePoint, the minimum amount (other than $0) was $25. So, I put that on. I also have $5 ChargePoint credit from some Apple Pay Promo that unfortunately expires 4/9/19. Not sure I'll be able to put it to good use before then.

Haven't used a penny of either.
