Kimco brings NRG eVgo electric vehicle fast charging to Westlake Shopping Center

NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–September 04, 2013–

Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE:KIM), owner and operator of the nation’s largest shopping center portfolio, and NRG eVgo (ee-vee-go) are pleased to announce the opening of the Bay Area’s first Freedom Station(R) at Westlake Shopping Center in Daly City, Calif. The eVgo Freedom Station at Westlake offers electric vehicle (EV) owners both rapid and traditional EV charging, and is one of seven eVgo Freedom Station sites planned at Kimco retail centers in California this year. eVgo Freedom Station sites include 480-volt “DC Fast Chargers” and standard 240-volt “Level 2” chargers compatible with any electric vehicle with a plug.

“We’re thrilled to have our first NRG eVgo Freedom Station up and running at Westlake,” said David Jamieson, Kimco’s vice president of leasing and asset management. “Californians drive more than one-third of the electric vehicles in the country, so building a network of quick-charge stations at Kimco centers, which are easily accessible by commuters, is a valued amenity to our customers and retailers.”

“This NRG eVgo Freedom Station is an example of Kimco’s dedication to sustainability and will enable drivers of zero and low emission vehicles to use no or little gasoline while working, shopping or socializing at Westlake Shopping Center,” said Terry O’Day, director of business development for NRG eVgo in California. “Unveiling this first of seven NRG eVgo Freedom Station sites with Kimco is an important milestone in making electric vehicles more convenient for the citizens of Daly City, the Bay Area and the state of California.”
