NRG eVgo and Simon Property Group Inc. have opened what they claim is the first station in the U.S. offering ac Level 2 charging for EVs along with two different types of dc fast charging. The station is in San Diego. One of the fast-charging systems uses the SAE International J1772 combo connector (which also allows slower Level 2 charging) and the other uses the CHAdeMO system developed by TEPCO mainly for plug-in cars from Japan such as the Nissan Leaf. Under an agreement with the California Public Utilities Commission, NRG eVgo will invest about $100 million to build a network of at least 200 fast-charge-capable stations in the region stretching from San Diego to the San Joaquin Valley. As part of the agreement, the company also will build infrastructure to support Level 2 charging at a minimum of 10,000 parking spaces at multi-family, workplace, and public-facility locations in California. NRG eVgo also is building stations in Texas and the Baltimore/Washington metro area.
