Cord's a little short - we have to back in
Tesla destination charger?? Cool! Where is it?
On the side of the building across from the gas station. Added the charger to the EV parking spot.
Hopefully, the other Costco locations will follow that lead.
Details, is it just another public charger or is it a Tesla charger.
Regular public charger
What network is it on (Blink, ChargePoint, etc.)? Fee for use? If so, what?
According to PlugShare, it is Sema charger.
I drove past this AM, I could have sworn I saw a Chargepoint logo on the side. Could be wrong.
9 post in and still no detailed information. does this charger even exist or are people making this up.
this is like pulling teeth. still want more information... type connector? Fee? confirmation on network? Amps/Volts available?
Lol, will confirm on Thursday when I'm back at Waipio. It's definitely going to be a J1772 though.
Google is da bomb. Found a pic - yeah looks like a Sema charger (says ChargePro on the side which is where I think I got the impression that it was a Chargepoint charger)
Checking the SemaConnect website, it's not listed yet but judging by the other Sema chargers at the other Hawaii Costco locations (Kauai, Maui, and Kona), it looks like a charge of $0.30 / kWh.
Nice investigation Spleen
Does anyone here pay for the public charging juice? If it's not free, I don't use it because it's just easier/cheaper from home.
They will be putting up signage in the near future--I provided them info for development of their signage. They want to cite the HRS section for enforcement. :love:
It's free - at least for now
Your home electricity is LESS than 30 cents a Kwh? I thought most of Hawaii was 40 - 50 cents per Kwh.
Well Big Island is higher than ours. I don't know how much but routinely a little more than ours. Right now with oil down, on Oahu its $.26 Kwh, down from $ 32.-34
It just FEELS like $ .50 a Kwh.
Yup, from the HECO website:
Keen in mind, that if you have PV, and are on the TOU-EV rate schedule, the cost is even lower. :biggrin: I did some rough calculations, and my cost to charge at home is around $0.10/kwh, so I never pay for outside charging. Volta (when they work!) is great though.
How are you getting it that low? TOU off peak usage is approx 6 cents cheaper than Schedule R so that'd make it about 17 cents/KWh? Unless you're factoring offset from PV ... but that seems slightly strange too since PV doesn't operate at night when off peak hours are.
