That would explain why I never encountered it before I joined, because I never used EVGo for L2.
IIRC, the $4.95 connection/session fee to start a DC FC session was for DC FC only and not L2.
This wasn't a Nor Cal only thing. A guy I know in So Cal w/an e-Golf posted about (on another forum) being hit w/the connection fee well after they got rid of it. Here's what he said on Jan 5, 2019:
"EVgo stations are EXPENSIVE. If you're not on their monthly subscription plan, just plugging in costs something like $5 PLUS electricity obtained, which is above local utility rates. I only use them when I have no choice."
After I let him know via that forum, his reply was:
"Thank you for that. I immediately switched over to the new plan. Love how EVgo never converted me to their cheaper plan, or at least told me it was available, and happily collected that $4.95 connection fee as recently as a month ago. "
