Supercharger Prices

Is there somewhere online I can see the pricing for individual supercharger stations? I've read some stations are cheaper during certain hours. I was curious to see what a road trip would cost but I couldn't find anything specific online.

Not really. The only place prices for specific superchargers is listed is in the navigation system in the car when you select a given location.

If you don't have free supercharging, you can click on each Supercharger pin on the map in the car and see the price for supercharging at that location.

I figured that was the case. I wondered if I was missing something because I kept seeing references to the price posted on the Tesla website.
Tesla's Support page on supercharging used to list information about the actual prices, but it no longer does so. At one time, the prices for supercharging in the US were set at the state level and all locations in that state would bill at the same rate. During that period, the page did list the rates on a state-by-state basis so you could see exactly what it would cost to charge at any given location (provided you knew which state it was in). Later, Tesla switched to a location-by-location pricing scheme for supercharging where each individual station had its own rates. At that point the support page changed to only show the two average (mean) prices for all superchargers in the country, broken down by whether the locations billed on a "per kWh" or "per minute" basis. From then on, the only place to see the actual prices at a given supercharger were to use the car's touch screen and select the station in the navigation. Now the website doesn't even list the average prices anymore.

What does A Better Route Planner use to determine costs? Would it work? How accurate is it?

I really like A Better Route Planner. I'm not sure about planning costs- if that feature is even available I haven't used it. But for long trips, I've found it extremely accurate. Of course, it depends on the information you're putting into it.

Just be sure to put in accurate info like extra weight, the speed you'll actually drive, etc. If you get a token and link it up with your Tesla, you can get real time information from it while you're driving. I used the Tesla navigation in the car to my destination, and ran ABRP on an iPad mini underneath and it navigated to the next supercharger. Worked out great.

Yes. I pay around .07 cents per kWh at home in Maryland. Most superchargers start around .26-.27 cents per kWh. And California is a totally different animal. Those are outrageous- can be up around .36 per kWh.

It's our cost of electricity, not the cost of supercharging. CA is .58 cents per Kwh in summer on peak.

$0.26 per kWh is still about half the cost of gasoline.......

Nope--not that either.
And apparently from @cstork 's disagree marker, he or she doesn't understand this either.

.58 cents is a fraction of a cent. It's less than a penny. Same with .07 cents or .26 cents, which were mentioned earlier. Those are less than one cent per kWh, which are not real electricity rates in the U.S.

You can say 58 cents, or you can say $0.58. Either of those are right, but not .58 cents.

@Rocky_H, thank you for introducing yet another group of people to my favorite math mistake. I always knew it as Verizon Cents, but maybe over time that has morphed into VerizonMath. I love how confusing fractions of a penny instead of fractions of a dollar has forever been associated with Verizon.

I actually think Verizon Math was the original name. Because when the person first recorded this and posted it, it was at the domain name of "verizonmath.blogspot.com"
