Tesla’s Supercharger stations open to third-party electric vehicles are considered “illegal” in Germany due to the lack of a kWh meter on the devices. Electrek reports: Handelsblatt reports that Tesla’s superchargers are considered “illegal” because their stations do not have a visible kWh meter (translated from German): “Every charging station where charging current is displayed according to kilowatt-hours must comply with the law about calibration in Germany , i.e. having a meter that accurately measures the charging current. This applies to public spaces as well as official and private spaces.” Tesla has always relied on its mobile app to monitor charging sessions, and the stations are not equipped with screens.

Thomas Weberpals, head of the Bavarian State Office of Weights and Measures, said that modernizing the stations is Tesla’s task and it is working on it. The government does not plan to act yet: “The illegal operation is not hindered or sanctioned. It was worked out and is being conducted on the rule of law.” “There are several other charging companies that are also breaking the rules, but Tesla has the most number of stations that are in violation,” Electrek notes.
