EVgo matches 100% of the electricity consumed on its network with purchases of renewable energy certificates
Accelerating the Transition to Clean Energy
EVgo is committed to protecting our environment by making it easy for drivers to go electric. With around 900 stations across the country, over 140 million people in the U.S. live within 10 miles of an EVgo charger. Together, we’re helping to clean up the air and tackle climate change, one charge at a time.
For every kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumed on our network, EVgo purchases a corresponding kWh renewable energy credit (REC) from an accredited REC supplier.
By powering more than 400 million electric miles since 2018, EVgo drivers have reduced the U.S. carbon footprint by 180,000 metric tons.
The 180,000+ metric ton reduction in the U.S. carbon footprint is equivalent to planting about 3 million trees.
Responsibly Recycling Charger Equipment
When a charger reaches the end of its useful life, EVgo works with Homeboy Recycling, an R2 certified electronics recycler and a B Corp™, to reuse parts wherever possible, recycle valuable materials, and reduce waste. In 2022, EVgo reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 261,004lbs through sustainable recycling practices in its partnership with Homeboy.
Promoting Sustainable Communities
EVgo’s Communities Charging for Change program promotes sustainable communities through public education and expanded access to EV fast charging. In 2019, EVgo opened seven fast charging stations in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Bay Area communities with a disproportionate pollution burden. This commitment to underserved communities supports EV drivers and shared mobility options, helping make clean transportation accessible to all.
