Tesla partners with EVgo to deploy Tesla connectors on their nationwide charging network
Right now it is open in San Fransisco, i called EVgo and asked what are the charging rates, and
teslas that have free charging will that also carry over also.
this is not know yet.
lets all post what we would like. who knows it may come true

Interesting, but I can's see how EVgo can provide free charging. I'd expect the same rates as anyone else that uses their DC chargers.

Great news though as it could provide many more charging options for us.

This is great but as Tesla sales expand i do not see Tesla offering free charging. I think the charging rate will be very competitive with utility prices considering Tesla is going to be installing solar on their charging locations. And since they make all the batteries and solar themselves, they will have the cheapest rates.

According to the article, you will have to pay EVGo rates. No free charging at EVgo locations.

All Tesla really needs to do is provide the CCS adapters so Tesla owners can use all the different fast charging options. Available in Europe for $100.

EVgo is small and only has 50kWh/200mph chargers. Electrify American has 350kW chargers with 150kW standard and is building out a network that will rival Tesla's in the US.

Here are some in the PDX area I've used. Two are under construction.

Here are the EVgo's in the area. They have a Chademo and CCS adapter. Again, if Tesla wanted to give Tesla owners choices it would simply provide the $100 CCS adapter it provides to Tesla owners in EU.

EVgo probably has realized that nobody is using their stations except for Tesla owners trying to use the single CHAdeMO one. If anyone at EVgo, Chargepoint, or EA really wants to succeed, they'll have to adapt to the true fast charging Standard that is actually being used -- Tesla.
The other option would, of course, be for the frankenplug (aka CCS) aficionados to make an adapter.
It would be much cheaper, however, to just swap out a couple of CCS ones at each site and that will be easier since it won't violate the obnoxious CCS license term that forbids adapters.
