eVgo Opens 13 Public Charging Stations in California, and Counting

After a slow start, the installation of eVgo charging stations in California is ramping up, giving plug-in electric vehicle drivers in the state more access to Level 2 and DC charging options. “We are moving at a big clip now opening stations,” Terry O’Day, vice president, California business development at eVgo, told

eVgo, owned by Houston-based NRG, now has 13 sites open in California and six under construction. Another 22 are going through the permitting process, said O’Day. The stations are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Future stations are planned for other parts of California, he said. More will also be added in those three areas, which are hotbeds for EV ownership.

All open charging sites have at least one Level 2 240V plug and one DC fast-charging connection. The site at Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego has three plugs. Fashion Valley’s additional plug is the SAE Combo Cord connection used by the BMW i3 and Chevrolet Spark EV.
