Select metro areas have pricing that changes by location
What Is Location-Based Pricing?
Location-based pricing means that chargers with higher congestion and higher costs (whether from rate design, rent, or other factors) will see higher prices, while chargers with lower congestion and lower costs will see lower prices. Also, lower-income and environmentally impacted communities will see lower prices as part of EVgo's commitment to environmental justice and Electric for All mission.
How Does Location-Based Pricing Work?
Location-based pricing sets three tiers of pricing—High, Medium, and Low—for select stations in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Tiers are based on the CalEnviroScreen, EV traffic and local installation, and ongoing property costs. CalEnviroScreen is a screening methodology that can be used to help identify California communities that are disproportionately burdened by multiple sources of pollution. This pilot will combine time-of-use and location-based pricing to, as an example, incentivize off-peak charging in lower-traffic and higher polluted areas. This pilot will also give valuable insight into EVgo's network planning tools for providing convenient, affordable charging and enhancing equitable access across the network.
