Can anyone tell me what it would cost to SC in the real world? I mean if there were SC's provided by other entities (gas - oops - service stations, fast food providers, or just any establishment). I just want cost to charge - not to install. Electric prices vary, but for businesses it is fairly consistent.
So, I pull up to a Lowes, plug in to the SC, go inside to shop, come out a short time later. What would Lowes have to pay for that? Let's leave solar out of the equation.
BTW, I love that there is an SC halfway to work - commute about 65 miles one way. At first it was used every couple days, but now we charge almost exclusively at home. Use the SC when work requires a 120 mile one way commute ( overnight). Still, it's nice to know it's there if needed. We are saving so much not buying gas. Previous gas was about $550 month. Now about $75 month - still have to feed our ICE (these are Calif numbers, so higher than most). Installing Solar this week, hope to see what real savings we will experience. Right now our electric jumped about $60 - but too little data to mean anything.
