Re: EVgo aren't so bad anymore. In fact they are now one of the least expensive

ChargePoint aren't much better along that route. A little, as you can get to Blythe (a dual unit install east of Palm Desert and a dual unit site in Blythe) but you can't get from Blythe to Phoenix just on ChargePoint. They also should install a 3-4 unit site near New Hope. (Or maybe near the juncti...

Re: EVgo aren't so bad anymore. In fact they are now one of the least expensive

I just looked at the map of EVgo fast charging installations in the Western US. Bizarrely, there are zero in OR and almost none in NV or AZ. 12 or so in Las Vegas, 5 or so around Reno -Carson city, just 8 in Phoenix, 2 in Tucson, and 1 about halfway between those two cities. Nothing east of Palm Des...

Yet, YOU, as Moderator, later changed this thread's title to the present name: "EVgo DC chargers were horrible up until the beginning of 2018..." Actually, no. OP changed the subject/title of the first post on the thread. When I noticed that, all I did was change the title on the (then) m...

EVgo was a subsidiary of NRG (cute name, 'energy'). They started as a subsidiary of a very large power (electric) company that was accused of market manipulations, price fixing and gauging during the ~2000 Calif energy scandal. They were going to be sued by the state, but they came to an out-of-cour...

Re: Design defect in 110v charger

OR, you could use some of your junk mail to make a white 'tent', with 'flaps' on the sides and use two rocks to hold down the paper so that it doesn't blow away. Then you place the 'tent' over the plug so that it is in the shade. Voilà !!

Re: free charging at Electrify America

SparkE: I am somewhat shocked that you do not rail against VW's use of public money (based upon their diesel scandal settlement) to start their EA charging network). You could not keep yourself calm when it came to EVGo (NRG) and the State of California, as I recall. You were tossing allegations fa...
