Electrify America Charging Is about to Get More Expensive
It'll be more expensive to charge at Electrify America stations starting on March 6.
The company is raising its per-kilowatt-hour and per-minute prices—varied by location—by up to 5 cents.
Pass+ members who pay $4 per month for discounted rates will also be impacted by EA's upcoming price hikes.
Get ready to pay more money when connecting to one of the thousands of Electrify America chargers scattered across the country. The company is raising rates up to 5 cents for its per-kilowatt-hour and per-minute charging options—which vary based on location—starting on March 6.
People who have a Pass membership as well as guests who aren't members will see the price for a per-kilowatt-hour session jump from 43 cents to 48 cents. Meanwhile, that same group will see prices in states that require per-minute charging also increase by 5 cents from 32 to 37 cents. That's the price hike for fast-charging speeds up to 350 kW; the rate rises 3 pennies from 16 to 19 cents for those charging at speeds of 90 kW or less.
While Electrify America says the people who pay $4 per month for the company's Pass+ membership save roughly 25 percent on charging costs, they'll still be affected by the upcoming price hikes. Their per-kilowatt-hour rate will jump from 31 cents to 36 cents. As with the people who don't get a discount, Pass+ members see their per-minute pricing rise by 3 cents (0.12 to 0.15) for up to 90-kW charging speeds and by 5 cents (0.24 to 0.29) for up to 350-kW speeds.
EA first made the announcement earlier this month in an email sent out to customers. The company cited rising energy and operational costs as the reason for the increased rates. Electrify America says it's the largest fast-charging network in the country, most recently claiming 800 total stations and 3500 DC fast-chargers.
