EVgo has opened its 800th fast charging station, which strengthens the company's position as the nation’s largest network of public fast charging locations by volume (but still mostly West Coast specific).
The 800th station is installed at a SaveMart in Madera, California and consists of two double-head BTCPower chargers - both with CHAdeMO and J1772 Combo plugs.
Another 130 EVgo stations are currently under construction or in the permitting process.
The 800 charging station are spread across 66 markets in U.S., but most of the sites (over 400) are in California.
"EVgo is leading the charge to offer convenient fast charging options to EV owners, with DC fast charging sites that utilize all current charging standards in order to service the entire fleet of EVs on the road.
EVgo is able to offer exemplary service by owning and operating its own charging stations, and utilizes a variety of flexible charging solutions including pay-as-you-go, low-cost membership charging plans and unlimited charging plans for customers of partner OEMs, including BMW, Nissan and Ford."
Terry O’Day, Vice President, Product Strategy and Market Development at EVgo said:
“The addition of our 800th fast charging station is a significant milestone in EVgo’s mission to drive EV adoption and create a beneficial grid that can make daily EV use and long distance EV travel the most convenient method of travel. The site at SaveMart Madera is a perfect example of where EVgo feels infrastructure expansion is needed; it is located in a high-traffic retail area close to many other amenities and major travel arteries.”
