Electrify America and EVgo have announced an interoperability agreement that allows drivers to charge their EVs at both EVgo and Electrify America charging stations without additional fees, using their existing accounts.
Drivers will be able to access public chargers on either the EVgo or Electrify America networks without having to create new memberships, registrations, or payment methods. The agreement will connect more than 3,000 DC fast chargers at more than 1,000 stations.
Earlier this year, Electrify America announced a similar agreement with ChargePoint. The company has similar agreements in place for Level 2 chargers with Greenlots, Sema Connect and EV Connect. EVgo has also announced bilateral interoperability agreements with ChargePoint, EV Connect, and Sema Connect. Electrify America foresees that such collaborations between charging companies will continue to grow as more Americans take advantage of the benefits of EVs.
“As the demand for EVs continues to increase and create the need for more EV charging stations, we understand the importance of making access to public chargers as easy as possible for current and future EV drivers,” said Giovanni Palazzo, CEO of Electrify America. “Connecting our two networks helps ensure EV drivers have the freedom to travel on their terms without concerns of where to charge their EV along the way.”
