free charging at Electrify America

Thu Apr 22, 2021 10:55 am

Post here when there's free announced or unannounced charging at EA statiions.

I'll start. This has already begun:
Reston, VA (April 20, 2021) -- On Earth Day, Thursday April 22, electric vehicle owners will get free charging sessions at all Electrify America ultra-fast charging stations.

Electric vehicle drivers can locate a charging station by visiting the Electrify America website.

The company will not charge EV drivers for sessions starting at 12:00 a.m. EDT April 22 on through to 3:00 a.m. EDT April 23.

As a reminder, you need to support the handle like at viewtopic.php?p=36057#p36057 until the plug is locked to the car. For these free sessions, you shouldn't need to use their app, NFC or a credit card.

I received emails:

1) EVGo will give me a $5 discount on any charge through the end of April; and

2) EV Connect:
We’re celebrating Earth Day by investing in a sustainable future. That's why if you charge your car at any EV Connect station on April 22, 2021, we will donate $0.10 per kWh charged to Coalition for Clean Air, a 501(c)(3) certified non-profit focused on protecting public health, improving air quality, and preventing climate change.

Thanks for the heads up cwerdna! ..

Went to the new EA site near me and it was indeed free (no app, CC needed) today on Earth Day!
The EA charge rate [36kw] was still pretty slow compared to the free (every day) EVgo site near me [46kw].
