Best pricing scheme is a sliding fee per kilowatt hour that goes down as the average number of kilowatts during the session goes up. For example, price = $X per kilowatt hour / average number of kilowatts during the session.

If your car is charging slowly (or not at all), you should be penalized to encourage you to let someone else use the equipment.
