IE commercial electricity rates.

Yes, commercial rates are significantly higher than residential. When I opened my first shop the rates shocked me.

Hello; I live on a busy rural highway in an area not likely to adopt EV's in numbers. However within a mile is an even busier highway (US25E) which is traveled heavily as a short cut between I-75 at Corbin KY to I-80 near Morristown TN. Lots of big trucks use the route and I guess a few other vehicles.
I had the silly notion a person with parking space could set up a few charging stations in this area sort of like an electric oasis in the middle of nowhere. My first thinking has been what to provide while folks are killing time waiting for a charge. But that may be secondary to the rules about selling electricity, the cost of a level three charger and commercial rates.

The more I look into this EV thing, the more twists and turns come up.

FYI, I've been seeing some absolutely wrong info being posted about charging rates, sounds like typical FUD from people who get their "facts" from, well, you know ... :D

Anyway ...

As an example of a real trip that we might take*, FL to PA, SuC rates are $0.24 to $0.27 (a few @ $0.12 off hours like before 10a, etc.)

Using ABRP, the trip calculates out to 864 miles door_to_door and a cost of $39, using 25MPG for let's say a Mustang, that's ~35g needed at $3/g = $105 (cost equivalent MPG would be ~65 MPG)

(* Actually not doing that drive anymore, my ass can't take 12+ hours on the road, we only fly :D)

I call BS. The 3 charging stations close to my home are all .43c a Kwh. Now if you have some subscription it may be less but to just plug in and charge, it is .43c

Nope, no BS, it's all available in real time - and honestly, why would I give any fucks enough to fabricate that data, that's absurd.

Give me a close address to "your home", where I could locate a Supercharger ...

$0.28

150 kW Supercharger, it's located on Marburg Avenue.

BTW, Musk posted about upgrading all Superchargers to support 350 kW, nothing supports that yet, I don't even think the new Plaid, maybe the Cybertruck[?]

I mean, here's what would be a stop for us headed to our place in The Keys (in Tavernier):

1626465420077.png


So the delta between 18% and 86%, based on an 82kW battery is 55.76 kW (i.e., that's the amount of charge being delivered / billed), and that stop cost is the last column, $14, so some quick math of $14/55.76 kW = $0.25 which sounds about right.

I happen to be in Nocatee Fl right now and I see 4 Teslas to 1 Mustang. Pretty sad IMO.

I probably know the Mustang owner AND the Tesla owners :D

And dude, the people with the Teslas made a conscious choice, and all the owners I know are enthusiasts, had dozens of ICE vehicles (and possibly still own one or more) I don't know why it's "sad". Weird.

Hello; I looked up my area zip 37724 near Harrogate TN. The two sites I found had the nearest to me in Morristown TN at East TN Nissan. The one in Williamsburg KY looks close but by any decent road is a trip. So it looks like right now I am about 50 miles away from one.
My guess is the one at the Nissan dealer is for Nissan cars. I did not know how to figure the cost or which are open for my use.

There is a charging station 4 miles from me currently. Next time I go out I will swing by and check rates. Ponte Vedra Fl.

From the searching I believe one must belong to a network to get the better rates.

The rates I posted are for Tesla Superchargers, no special rates, nothing other than buying the car (though if you use a reference code, you get 1000 miles for __free__).

Non-Tesla chargers vary a little more, but they're all about to get cheaper, more consolidated, several major manufacturers are putting money into infrastructure, hell, even Tesla is in new discussions to open up the Supercharger network.

I'll say it again, in a Tesla, I can go from FL to PA for ~$40.

Honestly, if you don't own one, why does it even matter? There's a bunch of people on this board, spinning around in circles, trying to prove, uh, hell, I don't know.
