How to Charge Your EV

Fast Charge Your EV in 3 Easy Steps

Plug In

Plug In

To get started, open your EV's charge port and from the charger choose the appropriate connector.

Plug your connector into the charge port until it clicks firmly into place. (*Click!*)

*Drivers of Tesla Models 3/X/S/Y can also fast charge at any EVgo location using a CHAdeMO adapter or using the Tesla connector at EVgo locations in San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles, CA and Seattle, WA. Learn more >

Tap to Start Your Charge

Tap to Start Your Charge

To initiate your charge, tap the EVgo app screen. You can also use your EVgo program card or your own credit card to initiate a charge.

Once the charger is activated, your screen will show that the charger is in use.

Now you’re free to run your errands, grab a bite to eat, or enjoy a short break from your day.

Note: You'll need to set up an account with EVgo to initiate a charging session with the app or program card. Most EVgo stations also offer the option of a one-time charging session with credit card payment.

Charge Up and Go

Charge Up and Go

When you’re ready to hit the road, return to the charger and stop your session on the screen.

If your session ends before you get back, you will receive a mobile alert.

Push the button forward to release the connector and replace the connector in its holster.

If you have any questions or need help, call the EVgo Charging Crew for 24/7 support at (877) 494-3833.
