    If Tesla were to sell Super Chargers to business, including installation, with 0% financing, I think everybody could win. A condition of the financing is that the Super Charger is free to use. I picture it where business would have just one kiosk, maybe two, and could add more if they saw a return.

    -Tesla could spend very little money to improve the SC network, mainly by making it denser.
    -Businesses could attract new customers.
    -Businesses would have skin in the game to prevent ICEing.

    What do you guys think? How much would a single SC bay cost installed, assume Tesla sells it at wholesale cost?

    It's hard enough to convince businesses to install a relatively inexpensive level 2 charging station, and some won't install a HPWC even when it's free. No way a business would pay for a supercharger and the electrical infrastructure required.

    Going back to what "Evbwcaer" asked, how can we find out how much a Super Charger is to install with a breakdown of:
    1) Tesla Provided Parts
    2) Other Infrastructure Required
    3) Ongoing cost to run a single Super Charger based on a 12 hour runtime window or something based on actual average usages
