I'm asking a Korean company to consider the likely effect on their sales if the only U.S. national (non-Tesla) charging network has a pricing structure that disadvantages their cars compared to those from other manufacturers, and to take action accordingly. Naturally, I'm also going to write to EA as well as CARB. The only way to get this changed is for people to speak up, or else vote with their wallets, and the latter eliminates some otherwise desirable options. I don't operate under the naive belief that bringing this change about will be easy, but the more options available, the better the chance we have.
In the meantime, as I read EA's announcement it strikes me that the work-around for now is to charge at the higher (price) rate until the charge rate drops below 75kW, then stop and restart charging again. Assuming that the car signals the new lower maximum rate and not its max. rate ever, you can at least limit the amount of time spent paying $0.58 instead of $0.21/min, at the cost of an additional $1 connection fee (if you haven't opted for the $4/month base fee), which you recoup after less than 3 minutes at the new rate. Maybe someone can give this a shot and let us know if it works.
