NRG Launches Nation's First Privately Funded, Comprehensive Electric Vehicle Charging Ecosystem

NRG Energy, Inc. is launching the nation’s first privately funded, comprehensive electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem in Houston, the start of a rollout across Texas in 2011.

Under the brand name eVgosm (ee-vee-go), NRG will provide electric vehicle owners throughout the greater Houston area with an extremely convenient and affordable “home-and-away” fueling package. In addition to procuring and installing the EV home charging station itself, NRG also will install and maintain public ‘fast charging’ stations conveniently located along major freeways, in key shopping and business districts, at popular retailers, and in multi-family community and workplace parking areas across Harris County. NRG’s eVgo offers access to these facilities and services to EV drivers for a flat monthly fee making EV charging simple, predictable and hassle-free. eVgo will be an “unlimited miles” package, offering unprecedented mobility at a fixed price for Houston-area EV drivers.
