Biggest Multi-Standard Public EV Fast Charging Station In The US Opens In Fremont, California

The biggest multi-standard public electric vehicle fast-charging station in the US just opened in Fremont, California.

The new EVgo Freedom Station — the 100th in California — is located at 5000 Mowry Ave at a Lucky supermarket. The new station is home to four 50 kilowatt (kW) DC Fast Chargers capable of all functioning at once — each of these chargers is equipped for CHAdeMO and DC Fast Combo. Reportedly, up to 9 vehicles can be plugged in at once. The station is also already wired for up to 4 more chargers — which could be added in only a few days time if demand called for it.

Biggest Multi-Standard Public EV Fast Charging Station

“This station is the first of a new generation of EV charging in America,” stated Terry O’Day, EVgo West Region Vice President. “With this installation, EVgo is crossing a threshold. We are already the largest provider of public DC fast charging. This station is the first of its kind to serve not only this generation, but the next generation of EVs with more power and range.”

Going by various demand observations, those behind the new station are expecting it to become the busiest public DC Fast charging location in the nation rather rapidly.

“With such rapid growth in EV adoption, it is important that EVgo’s stations be able to grow just as fast,” O’Day continued. “That is why this station is designed and built not just to double in size in a matter of days if needed, but to also add power capacity easily up to 150 kW when that technology is available.”

There are now more than 103 EVgo charging stations in California, with a further 28 in the development process currently.
