You're wrong, of course.

I've never paid PG&E more than 18 cents a kWh (off-peak) myself.

But more to the point, this was just the first of what will undoubtedly be many future rate hikes by TSLA.

Courtesy of the TSLA unregulated monopoly electricity supplier, ironically known as superchargers...

I wonder how long it will be before model 3 owners will begin to demand to be free to use public DC charge sites, and how tenaciously will TSLA fight emancipation?


I'm wrong because your off peak rate is $.18? That's comical. Yes it will help at SC stations, do you own a Tesla, what is your SC use experience?

Tesla’s First 400 kWh Of Free Supercharging For Model S & X Ends
https://insideevs.com/teslas-free-super ... -s-x-ends/

According to the latest news, cars sold on November 2, 2018 and on don’t get any free Supercharging credit, so 100% of the recharges are paid (at least if the owner does not receive some promotion like the 6-months of free Supercharging from the referral program).
