Re: What do they want to know?

My company got a free ChargePoint L2 using a DOE grant, and the deal was, they paid for install and any repairs (none so far, L2 is more reliable than QC), but also had to agree to a one year contract with ChargePoint at $300/month for monitoring, fee collection and remittances, and data reporting t...

Re: What do they want to know?

The trouble with ChargePoint is that they need to make money, and their model is a hard sell. Hosts might get a free DCFC because ChargePoint can arrange for grant money, but installation is on the host, and pricey, with a need for 480 volts. (Although there are 24 kW units that can run on 240 volts...

Re: What do they want to know?

Except they only install when they have a host. They’ll broker the equipment, but they don’t want to own any. They just want their exorbitant fees. So that leaves us EVgo mostly and a few Greenlots around here, maybe Blink in the West? It’s disappointing because ChargePoint has developed some good h...

Re: What do they want to know?

My favorite is always, “you mean it doesn’t take any gas at all?” Six years, and 3 BEVs and I still get this? On the plus side, the lack of demand makes negotiating easier. But c’mon ChargePoint, alter your business model a bit and install your own multiple unit super high powered stations like Tesl...

Me too. Glad they’re finally addressing this. Wish it would display cell levels. A bad cell is an important thing to know about.

Re: Station features?

Please keep in mind that maintenance/repairs are at the station owner’s discretion, however, our support and sales teams will happily work with the station owner to resolve the issue as soon as possible for drivers. Herein lies the most important station feature: ownership. Unlike Tesla and EVgo, e...

Re: Do not use EVgo fast chargers. No, seriously. Just don't.

Plus, now no one will feel like they have to stay 30 minutes because they paid a $4.95 session fee. You can do 10 minutes if you want.
