West Coast charging network operator EVCS is looking to simplify powering electric vehicles by offering a choice of monthly subscription plans.
The move marks a departure from the way such networks typically operate. Most require a low monthly fee and charge an additional amount per kWh used.
"It really is a minefield across the various networks, be it time of day rates, location-based variances and hidden fees," Kirk Johnson, chief growth officer at EVCS, said Monday. "We're trying to cut through all that with a very simplified, predictable monthly fee."
