If you mean for ZeroNet than I donated the first 1000 Charging Stations to ZCW and drivers are donating monies to deploy the next 1000. Remember that ZCW developed a low cost Charging Station to make this possible... something similar to the Open EVSE effort.
Very noble of you. I'm personally working on a DC charger network that is, so far, developed with my own money. I had not considered just building my own. There is another gentleman with a similar thought, and he is indeed doing just that; building his own DC chargers, but I doubt he'll be donating anything.
I do intend to open things up for others to invest so that we can spread throughout California. No plans for anything below 18kW of power.
