eVgo bringing Freedom with more DC fast charging stations

The electric vehicle charging network is expanding, particularly in California. The number of eVgo fast charge stations in the state will increase from 15 to more than 200.

NRG Energy’s eVgo has had a successful run thus far providing charging infrastructure for residential and commercial customers. eVgo recently announced agreements in California that will allow the installation of over 200 “Freedom Stations,” the company’s name for DC fast charge stations (DCFC).
Though not as powerful as a Proterra electric bus charger, these stations are capable of rapidly recharging electric vehicles in a half hour or less depending on the battery size, and address an important barrier to EV adoption.

eVgo refers to their model as “Freedom Stations” because they allow drivers to go farther with their electric vehicles and worry less about range limitations. So far, DCFC stations have been wildly popular despite their limited numbers and high price tag. One station can cost anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 installed compared with $2,000 to $5,000 for a typical, more common Level 2 station that charges at much lower rates.
