“It really is a minefield across the various networks, be it time of day rates, location-based variances and hidden fees,” said Kirk Johnson, chief growth officer at EVCS. “We’re trying to cut through all that with a very simplified, predictable monthly fee.”
EVCS, a Los Angeles company, has three subscription tiers for its West Coast network that consists of nearly 700 Level 2 or Level 3 chargers. The Standard Anytime plan costs $49.99 per month and comes with up to 200 kWh of charging. Beyond that, users will pay $0.29 per kWh. This plan will best suit drivers who cover less than 1,150 miles per month and will charge around seven times in that timeframe.
