    Charging Networks to Join? - Advice Sought

    As my delivery is approaching I have heard advice that having accounts for charging networks setup ahead of time is a good idea. Rivian connects to the Chargepoint Network, which I THINK gives access to Electrify America chargers. Hopefully at the same discounts? I have no idea who else...
