The City of Burlingame, Calif., has opened a new EVgo electric vehicle (EV) charging station in its Broadway Business District.
The six high-powered public fast-chargers are located at 1133 Chula Vista Ave. The station features the first public fast-chargers in Burlingame, claims EVgo.
“EVgo is committed to providing a convenient and reliable fast-charging experience for all EV drivers,” says Julie Blunden, chief commercial officer at EVgo. “Our six new high-powered EVgo fast-chargers will help power the needs of EV drivers living and shopping in the Burlingame community.”
Burlingame’s 2030 Climate Action Plan Update, which the city council adopted on Sept. 3, includes a number of measures to “green” the community, including adding EV charging stations throughout the city. Burlingame is located in San Mateo County on the San Francisco Peninsula.
“The City of Burlingame is excited to partner with EVgo to celebrate the opening of six new EVgo high-powered fast chargers,” says Burlingame’s mayor Donna Colson. “Together with EVgo, we’re helping to create a cleaner and greener future for our community.”
The parking lot location includes a total of six 100 kW-capable EVgo DC fast-chargers, equipped with both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. The stations can charge all fast-charge EV models in 20 minutes to an hour, depending on a vehicle’s battery size and charge rate. EVgo recently announced that it had contracted for 100% renewable energy to power its customers.
