Northern California is getting a new NRG eVgo Freedom Station (one of our favorites), equipped with two DC fast chargers - CHAdeMO and SAE Combo, plus as always one standard AC Level 2.

This means that every electric car available on the market can grab some juice (Tesla using adapters for J1772 or CHAdeMO).

The new station is located at Raley's Nob Hill supermarket in Mountain View.

Terry O'Day, Vice President of NRG eVgo in California stated:

"NRG eVgo is proud to offer this Northern California EV industry first in partnership with grocery industry leader Raley's.  Now, drivers on the peninsula have reliable and convenient charging at another great Bay Area shopping location as well as access to all industry charging standards. Together with this Freedom Station, both companies are serving busy families with goods and services that make everyday living easier and healthier."

Meg Burritt, Raley's Director of Wellness & Sustainability remarked:

"We are installing these convenient chargers as a service to our very sustainably-minded customers. This new opportunity to recharge your EV while shopping for groceries at our store is our way of saying thank you for choosing an EV. Raley's is here to make it easier for you to accomplish your daily tasks in a more convenient way."

Dan Dodds, Store Team Leader commented:

"Our customers' response to the units so far has been positive. They are excited to be able to charge their cars while shopping with us."
