[ARCHIVED] EVgo comes to Richmond

EVgo, the largest public electric vehicle (EV) fast charging network in California and across the U.S., has announced plans to build seven "Equal Access Charging Hubs" to serve the residents of disadvantaged communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Los Angeles Basin.

The City of Richmond was the first City to sign on to the Equal Access Charging Hubs program and EVgo will be building two hubs located at:

  • City of Richmond Public Parking Stalls adjacent to 4100 MacDonald, (located on 41st Street next to the Mechanic’s Bank)
  • 325 Civic Center Plaza Parking Lot, Richmond CA

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 California Environmental Protection Agency, 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.

Transportation staff is currently coordinating the official launch for early January 2019.  For more information please call Denée Evans, Project Manager at (510) 621-1718.
