We were curious about your charging habits, so we popped a question in our Thursday newsletter: How often do you plug in your EV at a public station? One of the coolest perks of owning an EV is that you can juice it up at home. And it seems like most of you love that, as 64% of you said you “rarely or never” go to a public charger, 20% said you swing by “monthly”, 12% said “weekly” and a mere 4% said “daily”.
These are some of the responses we received:
Typically charge at home (have solar so close to zero cost) or at work which is free – use Superchargers for long-distance travel.
I charge at home 99% of the time.
Never, I always charge at home utilizing the power from 34 solar panels on my roof. Cost is below $10.00 per charge.
I have a 2012 Leaf that I get 50 miles on a charge so I don’t go very far so I don’t need a charging station.
How awesome is it to have a refueling station at home?
