USA: Blink Ends Free Charging In California, From Now On Users Pay $1* to $2 Per Hour

Remember when you could drive up to a commercial, level 2 Blink station and get a free charge in California? Well, that changes on Wednesday, August 22nd, as Blink gave consumers a day’s notice to notify them that the “trial of fee-free” charging has ended.

Rates will now range from $1 to $2 per hour to receive an L2 charge in the state (the few DC fast chargers in existence are still free).

In order to qualify for the $1 per hour charge rate, a membership must be opened with Blink that also carries a $30 “membership dues” levy. However, in a statement announcing the new charge-per-hour standard in California, Blink reminds us that for the rest of 2012 that fee is currently waived.

Users can also sign up for a membership and elect out of the $30 free. However, they will charge their EVs at a rate of $1.50 per hour. For unregistered users, they will pay $2 per hour.
