NRG eVgo expanding national fast charging network (corrected)

NRG eVgo, a subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc. it expanding its Fast Charger network from its current 10 national markets to more than 25 over the next two years. Currently, the company has 245 fast chargers in its national network, including a mix of SAE Combo and CHAdeMO connectors. (Tesla owners that buy a $500 adapter can use NRG eVgo CHAdeMO stations.)

eVgo has agreements with Nissan across the US and BMW in California to provide new EV drivers with paid subscriptions when they buy their EVs. Last year, the company saw a 20-fold increase in customers throughout its network.

  • In California, eVgo has more than 120 Fast Chargers, including 29 SAE-capable, of which 26 are dual SAE/CHAdeMo. More are expected to be operational in coming weeks.

  • In Chicago, eVgo is restoring existing Fast Charger stations; there are 26 chargers in the Chicago area, and the company is adding more.

  • Texas has nearly 50 eVgo charging stations online in the North Texas and greater Houston areas, continuing to meet customer demand in the two largest EV markets in Texas.

  • Atlanta, one of the fastest growing metropolitan markets for EV sales, has 12 Fast charging stations.

  • eVgo chargers can be found in major metropolitan areas covering portions of Washington D.C. Virginia, and Maryland. This area currently has 24 active eVgo stations with another one expected to be online by the end of the month.

The NRG eVgo national network is continuing to expand, including its first five stations in Tennessee. Future expansion of the network will include major corridors, including San Diego to Seattle, and Miami to Boston.
