    Does anyone have an idea of the cost for a chargepoint station? Looking to put one in for a municipality and thought someone here may have an idea before I reached out to the company.

    The rough number I use for Chargepoint installs is $6000-$7000. Yes, they are the Lexus option in this market.

    But you can get an EVSE, even for a retail usage scenario, for FAR less money.

    I have all of the options written up here, starting with the cheapest and working up the price ladder to Chargepoint. Personally I recommend one of the Clipper Creek chargers.

    My back of the napkin quote was:

    Dual head master unit - $7000
    Dual head slave unit - $4000
    Service fee - So the RFID cards can work - unknown cost
    % of electricity used fee - this rate depends on if you are charging people or not. Basically, if you are charging people, they will want more money.

    * Master unit has a cell connection to do network stuff (charge people, and reporting). Slave unit connects to the master unit.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I should also add that if you need a networked system, semaconnect was a cheaper alternative, but still very costly when compared to 'dumb' off the grid units.

    Eaton makes a very nice 70 amp EVSE which you can enable as open, Keypad security, Keyfob security, credit card reader, or combination of two. I have one and it works great.
