EVgo Opens Electric Vehicle Charging Station In San Leandro, CA


EVgo opened a public fast charging station Nov. 21 at Marina Square Shopping Center in San Leandro, California.

The charging station serves up to four vehicles at the same time through 100kW and 350kW chargers. 

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured a lineup of local speakers, including Patty Monahan, commissioner, California Energy Commission; Pauline Cutter, mayor of San Leandro; Adam Gromis, public policy manager, sustainability and environmental impact at Uber; and Sara Rafalson, VP of market development and public policy at EVgo.

With more than 850 public fast charging locations, the EVgo network provides fast charging for all fast-charge capable electric vehicle models on the market. The new station is one of two EVgo charging locations that received the Northern California Charging Access for Reliable On-Demand Transportation Services grant funding from the California Energy Commission Clean Transportation Program.

“EVgo is committed to ‘Electric For All,’ and the availability of public fast charging is key to making that a reality for all EV drivers, but especially rideshare drivers,” said Jonathan Levy, CCO. “EVgo appreciates the support of the California Energy Commission to electrify this critical segment of the market, and this program will help EVgo drivers – including those on the Uber platform – to power up and get back on the road.”

Situated near Oakland International Airport and I-880, the new charging station will enhance access to public EV fast charging infrastructure for the local community in a high-mobility demand zone, reducing local pollution. The station is capable of charging vehicles up to 80 percent in 15-45 minutes, enabling drivers to charge in between rides, while shopping at one of the retailers in the center.
