EVgo and partners receive $3 million in NEVI funding to deploy EV charging stations

US EV charging network EVgo and its partners in the company’s eXtend white-label charging-management service received preliminary funding awards through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) formula program from sources in California, Colorado and Pennsylvania during the third quarter. 

The funding sources include utilities, air districts, state energy offices and state departments of transportation. The funding is sufficient to support the build-out of more than 150 350 kW charging stalls.

In July, EVgo and its eXtend partners were awarded more than 75% of the funds in Ohio’s NEVI program. Since then, they have received more than $1.5 million from Colorado sources to support construction of 14 stalls and more than $2.8 million in Pennsylvania, supporting the construction of 18 stalls.  

EVgo has also received a preliminary award of $4.3 million from the California Energy Commission’s Fast and Available Charging for All Californians grant, more than $2.9 million from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, and more than $1.1 million from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Public Access program.

“For well over a decade, EVgo’s partnerships with utilities, state governments, and other funding entities have been critical in accelerating our national network expansion,” said Sara Rafalson, Senior VP of Market Development, Public Policy and External Affairs at EVgo. “At this time of unprecedented public sector interest and investment in EV charging, we look forward to continuing to build upon our experience to capitalize on funding programs to build convenient, reliable and accessible charging infrastructure.”
