San-Matteo-Install (ABB) EVgo

The California Energy Commission has approved nearly $9 million in grants to four companies – Chargepoint, EV Connect, NRG EV Services and Recargo – for the installation of DC fast chargers along major state highways.

The companies will install 61 DC fast chargers at 41 sites along major routes on Interstate 5, Highway 99 and Highway 101. All the sites will also have at least one Level 2 charger.

When the network is finished, EV drivers should be able to travel smoothly from San Diego to the Oregon border.
