They are still free now. Charging again. :)

As I was leaving, a gen 1 Leaf pulled up to use the CHAdeMO plug. He seemed to have no idea it'd be free. He plugged in and was charging for free when I left. This is the first time I've been an an EA site where someone else was actually using the equipment w/o me having coordinating meeting someone there.

Given that someone in MA at https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/elect ... ost-596928 reported at noon ET that it was free for them, perhaps it's nationwide? I wonder when the free candy will end this time.

I actually stopped by one today at 16% just to see based on your comments. I took 2kw and was charged for it. Different state. Oh well

2 kWh?

Bummer. Maybe it stopped? IMHO, unless it says complimentary session on the screen, don't expect to get free juice. If it does, just plug right in and it'll start. Shortly after to plug in, a blue screen beginning with this text will come up:
"Welcome, Free

This session is complimentary, courtesy of Electrify America. Final receipt will reflect actual savings."

Do NOT use your CC, EA app or anything.

I uploaded some pics at https://imgur.com/a/wVq1frj. The 41 kWh free session at ~11 pm was from Friday night. The pic w/complimentary session at 5:36 pm was from today (Sunday), as an example.

I stopped it at 2kw as it is cheaper to charge at home. It is possible I did it wrong. I plugged in and started from app.

I told the gen 1 Leaf driver who showed up about it being free. He plugged right in and while he was there I pressed continue and and maybe no receipt. It had started by that point. He didn't use any app or CC.

Energy is measured in kWh, not "kw", I suspect your charging rate was above 40 kW but you received ~2 kWh of energy. Since you paid, you may have a received an email receipt like this (w/some info redacted). This was from when in my area, EA was still charging by time.
Thank you for charging with Electrify America.

I cut it off at that point since my Bolt began tapering to ~37 kW at that point.

I didn't bother w/having it email me a receipt for my free charges as I'd would've needed to type it on on their touch screen.

In their app, under Account > Charge history, it might also say. It is empty for me since I didn't use the app for free sessions and they don't display very old sessions.

Those photos were helpful. I stopped by a different EA and sure enough nothing like that. No free session for me. Plugging in did nothing just waiting for credit card or app activation.

Yep, none for me either. I saw several pix online of people who got free sessions a while back and it says the charge is free before you plug in

All the DC FCs I was at were still free on Monday night. The J1772 EVSE wasn't though. In some of the earlier complimentary days (but not early March), the J1772 EVSE also said complimentary.

I pinged the Bolt + Taycan guy. He said he'd charged his Taycan (today?) in Gilroy and he didn't see complimentary. He brought his Bolt to the EA site I was at confirmed he's charging it for free.
