Simon and NRG eVgo launch electric car charging stations

Washington, D.C. — Simon Property Group and NRG eVgo (ee-vee-go), a subsidiary of NRG Energy will host an amped-up Earth Day Electric Car Caravan to unveil three new electric car fast-charging Freedom Station sites at St. Charles Towne Center, Bowie Town Center and Queenstown Premium Outlets in Maryland. The caravan will attend ribbon-cutting ceremonies at each center on April 22.

The Freedom Stations feature 480-volt direct current fast chargers that enable EV drivers, who are shopping and visiting, to recharge their vehicles in 30 minutes or less. The stations also feature traditional 240-volt alternating current charger that can charge all electric vehicles.

Such efforts are part of a growing network of Freedom Station sites in the greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Ten have opened and more are coming soon. With sites under development across the Mid-Atlantic, the eVgo ecosystem will enable electric car owners in the nation's capital to drive with confidence around the entire region.
