EVgo charging stations to provide 100% renewable energy

Charging network operator EVgo has contracted with its energy suppliers to provide 100 percent renewable energy. The company is purchasing Green-e certified wind and solar energy across the US.

Last year, EVgo powered more than 75 million electric miles, according to the company, boasting 88 percent growth from 2017. Light-duty EV fleets and ride-share drivers accounted for a third of the miles delivered by EVgo in 2018. The company plans to double its network capacity by the end of 2020.

Julie Blunden, Executive VP for Business Development, said, “At EVgo we understand that our customers value all the ways EVs deliver a delightful driving experience, from better acceleration to eliminating tailpipe emissions. EVgo is the national leader in customer satisfaction and we plan to extend that lead with 100 percent renewable energy powering every mile charged on our convenient and reliable fast charging network.”
