EVgo’s EACH Project Enables Electric for All
The goal of the EVgo Equal Access Charging Hub (EACH) project is to spur the adoption of electric vehicles in California neighborhoods by creating job opportunities and providing convenient and reliable access to public EV fast charging. EVgo has opened seven fast charging hubs in San Diego, San Francisco Bay, and the Los Angeles Basin, in neighborhoods which are most impacted by air pollution, often coinciding with low-income communities.
EVgo has partnered with the Shared Use Mobility Center (SUMC) to provide technical guidance, stakeholder engagement and program evaluation. EVgo has also partnered with Citizen, Green For All, Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek, the Social Justice Learning Institute and STEAM The Streets. Through these commercial partnerships, EVgo aims to promote utilization of the hubs through EV ridesharing and carsharing.
In alignment with the state’s transportation electrification goals, these new fast charging stations increase access to electric vehicles in communities designated as disadvantaged by CalEPA, pursuant to Senate Bill 535 (De León). The stations will not only increase access to public fast charging for EV owners in these neighborhoods, but also support EV carsharing and ridesharing services in the area. To better inform the public on providing equitable access to electric mobility, the EACH program includes elements of community outreach and educational programming.
