NRG eVgo to bring DC fast chargers online in Chicago
eVgo has partnered with JNS Holdings Corp, owner of the project, to restore the chargers and will manage the operation of the existing DC fast chargers including networking, back office support and customer service.
In the coming months, eVgo will also add additional DC fast charging sites to the Chicagoland area.
‘DC fast chargers are the fastest EV chargers on the market today and can charge an EV in less than 30 minutes,’ said Arun Banskota, president of NRG eVgo. ‘With the comprehensive DC fast charger network in Chicago today and the new stations we will bring online, eVgo can give EV drivers the confidence to drive wherever in Chicago they need to go and make buying an EV a very real option for all Chicagoans.’
The project supports eVgo’s partnership with Nissan to expand the “No Charge to Charge” programme to the Chicago market, providing Nissan LEAF buyers with complimentary 24-month access to the eVgo network, as well as other EV charging networks, using a single EZ-Charge access card.
‘At NRG eVgo, we are committed to the future of driving electric,’ continued Mr Banskota. ‘Together with partners like Nissan, we can deliver innovative solutions like “No Charge to Charge” that empower more Chicagoland drivers to go electric.’
