eVgo installs more freedom stations, in Berkeley CA and elsewhere

Berkeley CA has been curiously devoid of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.  The city’s residents are famously green, but somehow there have been only two public charging stations in Berkeley for a long time, and those were in a parking garage with limited hours of operation.  That changes now with the latest eVgo Freedom Station going in at the Whole Foods in Berkeley.

The location is on Telegraph at Ashby, and of course includes both fast charging and level 2 charging support.

The installation is supported by a City of Berkeley pilot program to ease the permitting and installation of EV charging
stations. The Non-Residential Plug-In Electric Vehicle Charging Station Pilot Program
has staff who personally guide businesses through the process. Applications will be accepted through the end of the year.

This reminds me that I’ve been meaning to circle back around to the eVgo deployment.   It’s been a year and a half since I last looked deeply into their progress.   The agreement between eVgo and California specified a deployment timeline, and it would be good to check how they’re doing.
