Founded in 2010. EVgo’s mission is to unlock the benefits of electric vehicles (EVs) for every driver in the nation, providing affordable, accessible, and clean EV fast charging to boost the economy and the environment. In December 2017 alone, EVgo powered over 100,000 DC Fast Charges), to over 50,000 EV drivers, in 66 metro areas, on 1,050, 50kWh DC Fast Chargers, powering over 4.8 million miles of travel. This saved over 1,000,000 gallons of gas and offset nearly 10 million pounds of carbon dioxide.
EVgo is the largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles in the U.S. As the owner and operator of our stations, EVgo provides the best driver experience and reliability in the industry. EVgo stations offer the fastest speeds available in public charging – up to 8 times faster than other networks. Drivers go further on EVgo than any other public network.
In 2012, EVgo opened its first urban fast charging network in the U.S. created in Houston, TX with 15 fast chargers. In 2013, 40 EVgo fast charging stations were located in Texas, California and the Washington D.C. metro area. We continued to expand through the years in various markets and in 2016, we opened our 800th charger. Today we have over 1050 chargers in 66 metropolitan markets and continue to one new station every 6-8 weeks.
Our chargers average an up time of 94%. Most of our stations contain DC Fast 50kW chargers, which can charge a low battery to 80% within 30 minutes. In some markets, we also have Level 2 chargers, which charge up to 25 miles per hour. In 2018, we will open our first 150kW station connecting Southern California to Las Vegas. EVgo has the power to charge any EV on the market today.
For commercial retail, property developers and owners who want to increase retail traffic, revenue and property value, we invite you to join us by hosting charging infrastructure via a Fast Charging Station at your location.
