Some clarification is needed in this article.  If the gas stations own DC charging stations then they pay for the electricity.  But if they just lease (or sometimes give) the parking spaces to Tesla/EVgo/EA, they don't pay for the electricity - that particular network does.

@mtn-ranger I agree. It crossed my mind early in the article that the author might have a bias against EVs but maybe not. It does point out something that power companies may try to monopolize charging EVs and squeeze the little man.

True, however, most privately owned gas station only have a few parking spots in all; they wouldn't have the space to offer 6/8 stalls to an EVgo/EA so they wouldn't look at those gas stations for new sites.  The large providers will focus more on malls or Walmart/Target type parking lots that have large footprints and taking up 10 parking spaces wouldn't impact the store's parking.  The one-off DC chargers should be set up on separate meters without the huge demand charges.

Will I get my Fisker One delivered before my VW needs its 100K service?? The race is on..
and…… will we still get the $7500 tax credit? Only HF knows…
