Looks like the Solterra (and bZ4X) will be able to use EVgo's Autocharge+, which uses the Plug and Charge standard to charge a car and bill the owner automatically without the use of the app or a credit card to start the charging session.

Some good news, for a change!

This is great news. Plug and charge is what’s currently missing on majority of non-Tesla EVs to get that Tesla charging experience. Knowing the Solterra is capable means it will definitely expand to other networks and hopefully all main networks will have plug and charge enabled on the Solterra in the years to come. If only those damn charging station companies did a better job at maintaining their networks and there wasn’t so many issues with them. Tesla does the best job here by far even though they get their issues also. Just far less than the rest (combined).

Yes, the Tesla network is near perfect in comparison. However, DC charging is really only for long trips. So, for the most part we will charge at home. I use a Supercharger about once a year. EVgo unfortunately is a rather sparse network. EA, I believe, is the largest non-Tesla DC network.

I have P&C on my Mach-E and it's great when it works and chargers are not broken/flaky.

Having chargers owned and maintained at gas stations would definitely keep them operational. Having chargers at a Walmart/Target or some random parking lot... the owners of the land don't care and don't have folks checking on the chargers.
