MURRIETA – October 20, 2016—HelioPower, Inc., and EVgo are pleased to announce the successful installation of EVgo’s DC Fast Charging Stations at a Southern California Neighborhood Superstore at the intersection of Murrieta Hot Springs Rd and I15.

“Fast charging stations benefit many drivers and retailers providing the service.” Said Terry O’Day, Vice President of Product Strategy and Market Development at EVgo. “Partnering with HelioPower helps us quickly deliver the high quality fast charging stations for our most important clients.”
There is a growing demand for widely distributed, publicly accessible charging stations. Many sites provide a range of heavy duty or special connectors that conform to the variety of electric charging connector standards.
“With the dramatic increase in EVs, there is a corresponding need for EV Chargers, and EVgo presents an exciting solution by improving charging service and convenience for all EV drivers.” Said Mo Rousso, President of HelioPower. “HelioPower’s engineering, construction and operations and maintenance services leveraged our resources to deliver a financially viable project on schedule and on budget.”
The Neighborhood Superstore site has three EV Stations with unlimited access. Charging equipment is classified as either level 2 or level 3 by the rate at which the batteries are charged. In this case, (1) BTCPower Level 2 charging station (2) ABB Level 3 charging stations were installed. The new ABB Level 3 charging station has 2 different connectors; one CHAdeMO and one Compbo-1.
