EVgo Freedom Station Sites Will Begin Showing Up At California Retail Locations In Early 2013 Allowing Drivers To Add 50 Miles Of Range In 15 Minutes. (Photo: Business Wire)

To help ensure electric vehicle charging is available to Californians of all income levels, NRG will install at least 20 percent of the fast charging stations in low income areas and ensure that mixed-income housing locations are identified, evaluated, and pursued for the individual charging station make readies.

As part of the commitment to California, NRG will spend $5 million in collaboration with researchers and stakeholders on technology demonstration projects that will test new charging and related technologies and invest $4 million, in consultation with The Greenlining Institute, the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative and other key stakeholders, to support low income car-sharing, workforce training, and related opportunity programs.

“With gasoline having just set new record highs, FERC’s decision today couldn’t be more timely or important for California drivers,” said Terry O’Day, Director of Business Development for eVgo in California. “Now that we can start building eVgo fast-charging stations in California, EV drivers should expect range confidence from the first Freedom Station sites in early 2013 and many more to follow.”

In addition to the investment NRG will be making in EV infrastructure to benefit Californians, NRG will contribute $20 million to the California Public Utility Commission for rate payer relief.

“We commend California and the California Public Utility Commission for their forward-looking views on the benefits of Zero Emission Vehicles like EVs and then turning their views into action to actually encourage greater EV ownership,” added Crane. “Together, we are creating an outstanding environment for making EVs an extremely viable, sustainable and fun way to drive in the State.”

The agreement resolves outstanding litigation arising out of a long-term electricity contract entered into over a decade ago by a subsidiary of Dynegy, Inc., then a co-owner with NRG of a portfolio of power generating plants in California. NRG inherited responsibility for resolving this matter in 2006 when the Company acquired Dynegy's 50% interest in the assets.
