LOS ANGELES — EVgo Inc., a public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs), has been awarded grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to install new high-powered 350 kW DC fast charging stations. Sites include Wawa and Sheetz convenience stores.

These projects are supported by funding from the Pennsylvania DEP’s Driving PA Forward initiative and add to the three stations and 10 direct-current fast chargers (DCFCs) EVgo has already activated in the state.

“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, with three more expected to be operational before the end of the year, for a total of 20 DCFC chargers.

Pennsylvania’s Driving PA Forward initiative aims to improve air quality in Pennsylvania and drive transformation from older, high-polluting diesel engines to clean transportation technologies. The grants were awarded through the Fast Charging and Hydrogen Fueling Grant Program.

Los Angeles-based EVgo is a public fast charging network for electric vehicles powered by 100% renewable energy. With more than 800 fast charging locations in more than 67 metropolitan areas across 34 states, EVgo serves more than 220,000 customers.
