Destination Charger charging for charging?

    I just noticed that a Tesla destination charger that I was considering using now has a $5 charging fee listed on Plugshare. I don't remember ever seeing that before. I don't know if this fee is waved if you do business with them.

    Anyone ever see this at other DCs? I know they almost always require a business transaction of some kind. I actually like the idea that a business, like a hotel I don't want to stay at, would be willing to allow charging for a fee to recover their electricity cost.

    The charger is at Home Made Kitchen in George West, Tx.

    Yep, frequently some of them do. The Blue Lakes Inn in Twin Falls Idaho has a form at the front desk for paying a fee for non-guests to use their charging stations.

    Another example: The Inn at Cooperstown (NY) has a Destination Charger, and there is a $10 fee for non-guests to plug in. It was the first (and so far only) time I've paid for charging in more than 3 years of owning a Model S -- other than paying for electricity at home of course -- but it ended up being a huge convenience for me.
