I wouldn't pay $2.50/hr either (unless I was in an emergency). But you are ignoring the cost of the charger or the installation.os2baba wrote:I checked on Sema's web site and they are showing $2.50/hr in Alpharetta as well. So it looks like Walgreens has set this for all their stores. Electricity cost is roughly 10c/KWh. I think the most I have seen is 13c/KWh. An L2 charger with the New Leaf should take 7.2KW per hr. Which would make it about 70-80c per hr. Walgreens is charging 3x+ the cost of the electricity. I doubt that anyone other than someone in an emergency would pay that much.
I think it should be cheap, if you make a purchase at the establishment providing the charger. Free unregulated use, invites abuse.
