Tesla Supercharger network raises prices in California again
Charging up your Tesla at a Supercharger station in California is once again more expensive than it used to be, yet still makes more economic sense than driving an ICE car.
A full charge could set you back from $5 to $10 just several months ago. Now, drivers trying to top up their batteries in rush hours end up paying 50 cents per kilowatt-hour. As a result, refilling your 60-kWh cell pack may cost you up to $30 and getting a 100-kWh one from zero to full may lighten your credit card account by a cool $50.
The new fees have been applied since September 28. Tesla recommends all drivers to avoid charging their EVs during the rush hours, and instead to come when the load on the network is relatively low.
For most stations out there, it means late at night. Charging in the dead hours may net you a 30% or even 40% discount. If in doubt, you can consult the navigator software for a detailed hourly breakdown, Tesla says.
