These stations are being installed by a few different charging providers so the pricing policy varies and you need to check the details carefully. Many of the DC chargers are managed by EVgo and they have standard pricing plans based on per-use or subscriptions. Others are installed by ChargePoint and may have different fees specific to each location. Other providers are participating as well and have their own quirks.

That's great! I hope they get more chargers on Hwy 5 from LA to SF. It looks sparse other than the Tesla Superchargers. I see a few on the 15 from LA to Vegas, but could use a few more there, too. Those are main travel corridors, and would get used a lot.

Great! Thanks for the list. It looks like those routes are filling in, and making EV travel a reality. Those two highways get lots of use.

Question for those from the area (or those travelling through there) :

So, out of curiosity, have any of the above DCFCs gone operational yet? Has ground even broken for any of them yet?

To my knowledge, none of these have started construction. There is an EVgo charger in Baker under construction, but that is separate from these CA grants.
