Culver City Will Upgrade Parking with EV Charging Stations

EV-Charging-Road-SignThe City of Culver City and NRG EVgo (ee-vee-go), a subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc., are pleased to announce the installation of three new Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations on the first floor of the Ince Parking Structure (Ince) located at 9099 Washington Boulevard and one at City Hall, both in the heart of downtown Culver City. The public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the activation of the new stations on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.
The EVgo Charging Stations are designed to support both current and future charging
technologies by serving the on-the-go charging needs of EV drivers, regardless of what kind of EV they drive. At Ince, there are two DC Fast charging stations which offer both the SAE Combo and CHAdeMO standards and at Ince and City Hall there are Level 2 chargers which are four times faster than a standard outlet. Additionally, the PlugShare smart phone app will list all of the options when EV drivers search Culver City for public EV charging stations along with their availability.
“Most EV’s will attain an 80% charge with 30 minutes of charging when using the DC Fast Charge stations, which will encourage EV drivers to travel to Culver City and visit our downtown. As their car charges, EV drivers can grab a meal and shop knowing their EV will get them to their next destination. Installation of the new stations is another example of Culver City’s commitment to the use of alternative fuel vehicles as a way to help improve air quality by reducing vehicle emissions,” commented Culver City Mayor Micheál O’Leary.
“EVgo is the largest developer of public DC Fast Charging for EVs in the nation, and we are using this experience to partner with Culver City to begin serving area customers,” said Terry O’Day, EVgo’s West Regional Vice President. “This robust network of charging stations features the fastest public charging available and provides drivers with the confideence needed to purchase an EV and discover an incredible new driving experience.
