Tesla always provides good service to its customers and hence this time Tesla is expanding some new Tesla’s EV charging stations for the convenience of its customers. This may prove to be Tesla’s best idea so far. Let us understand it in detail.
Woah. This is huge.— Whole Mars Catalog (@WholeMarsBlog) August 2, 2022
Owns of the latest generation Tesla Wall Connectors with wi-fi will be able to set a price to charge others to use their charger!!
and it works with Tesla and non-Tesla EVs! Can someone go to this site and try it out? pic.twitter.com/ZONkB3FNBX
What is a charging station?
A charging station also named a charge point or electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), is a chunk of equipment that supplies electrical power for charging plug-in electric vehicles (including electric cars, electric trucks, electric buses, neighborhood electric vehicles, and plugin hybrids).
There are 2 Main Types –
- AC Charging Station
- DC fast chargers
Batteries can only charge with direct current (DC) electric power, though most electricity is delivered from the power grid as alternating current (AC).
For this reason, most electric vehicles have an onboard charger with an AC-to-DC converter (a rectifier). an AC charging station, power is supplied to the onboard charger. DC fast chargers facilitated higher power charging, which needed much larger AC-to-DC rectifiers, so the converter is built as a part of the charging station and DC power is supplied directly to the vehicle, bypassing the onboard converter. While most fully electric car models can accept both AC and DC power.
Charging stations provide connectors that conform to a wide range of international standards. DC charging stations are commonly equipped with many connectors to be able to charge a wide variety of vehicles that utilize competing standards.
Public charging stations are typically found street-side or at retail shopping centers, government facilities, and other parking areas. Private charging stations are typically found at residences, workplaces, and hotels.
This may be one of Tesla’s most brilliant plans for the expansion of the EV charging infrastructure yet.
In the screenshot posted by @WholeMarsBlog, he pointed out that owners of the latest generation of Tesla Wall Connectors with WiFI would be able to set a price to charge others to utilize their charger. it works with both Tesla vehicles and non-Tesla EVs.
This, he points out, would be great for penthouse buildings, especially since it bills via your Tesla account.
It has not been tested yet, (that we know of) but this would be a game changer for corporations and small businesses alike.
The idea of EV charging Station
Although @Wholemarsblog mentioned penthouse apartment complexes, this is actually a game changer for businesses especially hotels with destination chargers.
Hotels with Tesla Wall Connectors that double as destination chargers would be able to charge consumers to plug in their non-Tesla EVs.
This also opens the doors for those who might desire to start a business in the EV charging space.
Necessarily, this has the potential to give anyone or every one the ability to become an EV charging point.
Assume if Walmart, Targeting, or any supermarket were to buy a few Tesla Wall Connectors for each of their parking loads and charge for EV charging.
NON-TESLA EV CHARGING OPTION ON NEW TESLA APP UPDATE
A new Tesla App update now appears as an option for Non-Tesla EV owners to charge. However, this is very new it shows that Tesla’s aim of opening Superchargers to non-EV owners in the U.S. is close to being realized.
Recently (as of this writing), only Tesla owners with fewer vehicles in their account can access the Product Switcher section. At the lower of the Product Switcher, you can see the option to charge a non-Tesla EV.
