    "The charger soon will be able to also fast-charge Tesla electric cars, which draw more juice for a range of up to 200 miles, but GOe3 is awaiting finalization of a U.S.-standard plug for those vehicles, Bricacombe said. The fee to charge Teslas will be $13."

    Good find! Wonder what kind of DC "standard plug" other than a Tesla plug that is going to work with these?

    Also interesting:

    "The installation also features Level 2 charging at a higher amperage than standard Level 2 chargers used in other public and home setups, GOe3 says."

    What they probably mean is that they're waiting for Tesla to release a CHAdeMO adapter. If I had to guess, the reporter mangled it.

    This could accelerate things and release some of the burden from Tesla
