San-Matteo-Install (ABB) EVgo

EVgo, the nation’s largest network of public DC fast charging stations, announced that it has officially opened its 800th fast charging station, at SaveMart in Madera, Calif. The location features two DC fast chargers manufactured by BTC Power of Santa Ana, Calif. Each dual-standard charger includes two connectors, CHAdeMo and Combo Charging Standard.

EVgo’s network is now operating across 66 markets in the US.

“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,” said Terry O’Day, Vice President, Product Strategy and Market Development at EVgo. “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.”

EVgo now operates over 400 fast chargers in California, with another 130 planned, currently under construction or in the permitting process.

    This company is for those without home charging. There is only one optimum plan, the monthly fee one. The $4.95 just to connect for the two other plans makes them very expensive for EV owners except in an emergency. For those with the Nissan free to charge plan, they are excellent. On Cincinnati these stations are seldom used. If the cost were more reasonable, perhaps they would see more use.
