Payenergy is fully Compliant with California code for EV chargers : Read article "California EV Charging Regulations Don’t Forbid Per-Minute But Are Still ‘Gasoline Thinking’"

The Electric vehicle world has been abuzz about reports that new California regulations, adopted just two weeks ago and in theory coming into effect Jan 1 will:


  1. Forbid billing by the minute for charging, as EVgo and others currently do.
  2. Require displays on all chargers like a gas pump, showing price, plus the cost and amount of energy dispensed, as Tesla doesn’t do at superchargers.


Fortunately, if you read the regulations and statement of reasons correctly, there is no panic:


  1. The regulations don’t apply to existing chargers (nor chargers installed in the next 1-3 years) until 2033.
  2. The regulations only block billing by the minute for the energy. They allow billing by the minute or session for time in the charging space, for example.
