The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) unanimously voted to approve Charge Smart and Save, a program initiated by Pacific Gas & Electric to deploy 7,500 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across Northern California. Under the approved program, PG&E will primarily deploy stations at multi-family dwellings and workplaces, with electricity price based on time-of-use to encourage drivers to fill up during off-peak hours or when renewable energy is abundant. . . .

A drop in the bucket, but a good start. $130 million. That works out to $17,333.33 per station. From the article it appears that QCs have been dropped, so these will all be L2.

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
