Power up With kWh and Time of Use (TOU) Pricing

With kWh pricing, charging costs are based on the amount of energy your EV consumes, not the amount of time you spend at the charger.

In addition to charging by kWh, TOU pricing means that costs vary based on when you use energy. Electricity costs vary throughout the day, and so does the amount of congestion on the EVgo network. In select regions of the U.S., customers pay for their charging sessions by kWh, with costs that change based when you plug in your EV.

What Will This Mean For Me?

By transitioning to TOU pricing, EVgo hopes to encourage energy conservation during On-Peak Hours (when electricity demand is higher). Because most EVgo customers already charge during the day, while shopping, going to the grocery store, or running errands, many EVgo customers will see EVgo’s lowest rates. With the transition to TOU pricing, we hope to encourage drivers who charge during On-Peak Hours to charge during Off-Peak and Early Bird hours when there is less demand.
