Thanks for the welcome everyone!

And my usual charge of 1.5 hours took 2.5 hours that day and plugshare community reported similar problems in the days before.
@michaellax I'm sorry to hear about that! ChargePoint stations are independently owned and operated, though we do facilitate troubleshooting and repairs for our station owners! So, the best way to receive status updates on an issue you submitted is to reply to the email generated when you submitted the report initially. The support team will then be able to get in touch with you directly - or you can contact them directly using email@example.com
to follow up!

But what I really need to know is info on the uptake of your new high power DC modular QCs. When will they be more widespread?
Here in New England, ChargePoint QCs are still outnumbered by eVgo stations and it'll be good to see a bit more competition.
We have more information about DC fast here http://bit.ly/DCfastchargers
We're always adding new Level 2 and DC Fast stations and working to grow the network. Keep an eye on the ChargePoint mobile app for new chargers added in your area!
Yes, stations are owned and maintained by the hosts. The business owners set the pricing their stations, and often the business owners provide charging for free or at a reduced cost because they want to attract customers and employees to their locations.
The ChargePoint mobile app is the best way to find stations and get pricing estimates. You can also filter your search for free stations and never pay to charge. Additionally, there are no time limits on charging sessions.

Has ChargePoint approached the supermarket chains to allow folks to use their gas rewards credits to pay for charging time?
We would love to help get stations near you, and at more supermarkets and drugstores. We ask that drivers request stations where they'd like to see charging options. Just fill out the station request form and we'll try to get in touch with the right people! http://bit.ly/stationrequest
