This is unacceptable! What am I supposed to do when I drive up to this? I’ve called the charging company, OPConnect and after many months, it’s still broken. We need massive education for the public about the benefits of electric cars & better security in order to make electric car charging more attractive. The car charging companies must also take better care of their chargers! Do thqey even care about making a profit? If we are to reduce climate change, we need to convert to electric cars ASAP, especially if they are powered by solar electricity. This vandalism or neglect rarely happens at a gas station.
Right after I wrote this blog, the charging company, OPConnect came out and fixed these chargers! Coincidence or the power of the internet? You decide. Now all OPConnect has to do is lower their outrageous prices. They charge a $35.00 upfront deposit and subtract the amount you charged right away.You supposedly get the rest back in a few days.
I realize gas stations charge an even higher deposit but EVgo doesn’t charge deposits and you get a faster full charge, So what’s up with that? Maybe they’ll change that too.
