EV Charging Without A Garage

Charging your car if you can’t install a charger at home can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. // Sign up for these updates at https://teslanomics.co/join Ideally, you’d have a setup at your house. For example, at my home, I have a  NEMA 14-50 outlet. But what if you can’t install a charger at your home like this? Maybe you don’t have a garage or live in an apartment complex that won’t install a charger? That’s when you’ll have to go public At home, depending on your equipment, you’ll likely get Level 2 charging rates. This will get you between 20mi of charge per hour which is around 31kph. If you don’t want to wait that long, you’ll want to find a DC Fast Charger. Some even call these Level 3 chargers. The most common connector for a DC Fast Charger is the CHAdeMO plug and is popular in both the US and Europe.  The last option regarding charging connectors is for Tesla. The Tesla Supercharger could be called a Level 4 charger with the fastest rates available. // https://evobsession.com/?s=charging+101 With over 1,000 locations across the US EVgo is relatively small but does seem to have decent availability in more urban areas. As far as costs go EVgo offers several plans depending on your needs. When looking at the plan choices, it seemed confusing, especially since they charge based on the amount of time versus the amount of energy. Next, we have the most extensive charging network provider, ChargePoint. At the station by my house, the rate was $0.35 per kWh which may sound high, but when you consider our peak rates in San Diego are over 0.40, it’s a good deal. In addition to the per kWh rate, they will limit the amount of time you can charge at a station. T Another popular network here in southern California is Blink. Blink reports over 4K chargers and they do offer fast charging. A new startup from San Francisco, Volta, is looking to disrupt this market with free charging. The model is based on showing ads on their massive display stations located next to where you plug in to charge.  Tesla owners get some additional options with the supercharger and destination charger networks.  The supercharger network is currently the fastest way to charge of any EV. In about 30min you can get upwards of 170 miles, just under 275km of charge. The supercharger network has over 7K chargers and is prevalent in the US, Europe, and Asia. For Model S and X owners who purchased before May of 2017 Supercharging is Free. New Model S and X owners that used a referral code, such as ours which you can get at https://teslanomics.co/td also get free supercharging. https://public.tableau.com/profile/bens#!/vizhome/TeslaSuperchargerNetworkCosts/US In addition to the superchargers, Tesla partnered with many hotels and malls to offer destination chargers similar to what you can install at your home. These chargers are free for all Tesla’s but often are reserved for patrons of the store or hotel hosting them. When it comes to finding public chargers, there are lots of options. In my experience the best one is plugshare. //Charging https://www.plugshare.com/ https://openchargemap.org/site https://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html EV Match is another startup in this space is working to help pair drivers and people with chargers. The idea here is that people can share their home chargers with others in an Airbnb fashion where the host receives a small fee for providing you with a charge port and juice for your journey. https://www.evmatch.com/ So with all these options hopefully you can rest easy when it comes to finding a place to charge. // New here?

EV Charging At Home With OpenEVSE (Review)

Despite using OpenEVSE hardware for years, I've never actually done a review... until now! The folks over at OpenEVSE were kind enough to give me one of their Advanced Kit Bundles for review--enjoy! Since people have been asking, yes, I made the stop motion sequences myself and this video is actually the first time I've attempted stop motion animation. If you'd like to learn more about OpenEVSE or purchase any of their products, check out their website: https://openevse.com Want to know more about my custom OpenEVSE build?

Plug-Side Chat: Should Electrify America Support CHAdeMO?

Electrify America is building out public DC fast charging infrastructure at a rapid pace throughout the United States; however, they are emphasizing the CCS standard over CHAdeMO. In fact, at this point, despite having as many as five or six chargers per site location, Electrify America is only installing one CHAdeMO charger per site. That prompts and interesting question: Should Electrify America be supporting the CHAdeMO standard and installing CCS and CHAdeMO plugs in equal number? The only automakers selling BEVs under the CHAdeMO standard are Nissan, Kia, and Mitsubishi. However, Mitsubishi dropped the CHAdeMO adapter from its Outlander PHEV for U.S. sale, and it appears that Kia is transitioning to the CCS standard. That leaves only Nissan. How much of our public resources should be allocated for a single automaker?
