NRG’s eVgo launches in Dallas

NRG eVgoNRG has opened its first level 2 charging station in Dallas today.  NRG CEO David Crane  will be holding a webcast this afternoon at 2:40.

From the eVgo website: “Our goal is to provide complete range confidence across the metropolitan areas where eVgo operates. That means placing charging stations at the city center and at locations extending outward along major thoroughfares and at strategic destination points. In Houston, for example, charging stations are near the city center, at 25 miles out in all directions, and at points in between.”

From GigaOm: “For NRG’s “eVgo” electric car charging network, the power company is taking a page from the cellphone industry in charging flat monthly rates for a variety of different uses of charging. Charging plans for eVgo will range from $50 to $90 a month on fixed three-year contracts, with the cheaper rates for people who only want “Level 2” chargers, capable of adding about 25 miles of range per hour of charging, installed at their homes.”

“We’re taking a page from Southwest Airlines when they started out 40 years ago to link the major population centers in Texas,” NRG President and CEO David Crane said in a news release. “This first station is the start of an ecosystem that will eventually give Texas EV (electric vehicle) owners the freedom to drive with range confidence throughout the region.”
