Tesla Quietly Raises Prices Per Kilowatt Hour At Its Supercharger StationsLeave a Comment
Tesla’s Supercharger network is expanding across the country but not without a cost.
The company has quietly raised prices per kilowatt hour for using the fast-charging stations at an average increase for pay-per-use customers ranging from approximately 20 to 40 percent, according to Electrek.
The price has actually doubled from 12 cents to 24 cents in Oregon and moved from 20 cents per kWh to 26 cents in California.
“Tesla is committed to ensuring that Supercharger will never be a profit center,” the company says on its Supercharger site, and it makes sense the company would have to raise prices a bit as the network and demand grows.
However, if the Model 3 takes off, Tesla could have a real dilemma it has to face.
