EVgo Inc., the nation’s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) and first powered by 100% renewable electricity, on Nov. 8 announced it was awarded several grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to install new high powered 350 kW DC fast charging stations.

These projects are supported by the latest funding from the Pennsylvania DEP’s Driving PA Forward initiative and add to the three stations and 10 DCFC chargers EVgo has already energized.


“EVgo is rapidly expanding our network, including in the Keystone State, thanks in part to the support of the Pennsylvania DEP through its Driving PA Forward program,” said Jonathan Levy, chief commercial officer at EVgo. “Locations matter massively when it comes to charging, and EVgo’s commitment to siting fast charging where drivers want to stop and shop continues whether you prefer to get your hoagies at Wawa or your MTOs at Sheetz.”


To date, EVgo has a total of eight site host partners with operational stations in Pennsylvania, with host types from retail centers to pharmacies.


EVgo has opened three new sites in Pennsylvania this year alone, with three more expected to be operational before the end of the year, for a total of 20 DCFC chargers.
