The Coca-Cola Co. has partnered with NRG eVgo, a subsidiary of NRG Energy Inc., to join Gov. Jerry Brown's call to have 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on California's roads by 2025.
Coca-Cola will provide electric vehicle (EV) charging at seven of its facilities across California. eVgo will install and manage the charging stations to provide workplace charging for Coca-Cola employees with EVs.
Both Coca-Cola and NRG Energy are a part of the Department of Energy's Workplace Charging Challenge, which encourages companies to offer workplace charging outlets to associates. The eVgo partnership is an expansion of Coca-Cola's employee-driven EV program, piloted at the company's Atlanta site.
The eVgo chargers will be located at Coca-Cola campuses in Sacramento, Coachella, Downey, Sylmar and downtown Los Angeles, as well as two facilities in San Leandro.
