Electrify America switched to charging per kWh in the U.S.

Electrify America, one of the largest open DC Fast Charging networks in the United States, finally made the switch to a per-kWh charging basis as opposed to their previous per-minute system.

The company announced that it will charge $0.43 per kWh, and a reduced cost of $0.31 per kWh for those who subscribe to their $4-per-month Pass+ program.

As of now, the changes have been in 23 states across the U.S., with the company being limited to their access due to legislation. According to Electrify America, 78 percent of their consumers reside in the 23 states where the switch has been made

Electrify America says it’d be glad to make a nationwide switch to the new per kWh system, and is trying to figure out a way to commence while complying with the laws of each state. As of now, the prices remain consistent throughout all the states where the new system has been applied, although the company says they may switch to a regional pricing structure depending on market conditions.
