EV Infrastructure to Expand in California

April 11, 2012

The California Public Utilities Commission and NRG Energy entered into an agreement where NRG will build a comprehensive electric vehicle (EV) charging network in California, investing approximately $100 million over the next four years, according to a release from NRG Energy.

This fee-based charging network will consist of at least 200 publicly available fast-charging stations — installed in the San Francisco Bay area, the San Joaquin Valley, the Los Angeles Basin and San Diego County. Additionally, NRG’s EV infrastructure commitment will include the wiring for at least 10,000 individual charging stations located at homes, offices, multifamily communities, schools, and hospitals located across the State.


The agreement calls for a network that will bring:

  • A minimum of 200 direct current (DC) fast chargers to the state.
  • A minimum of 10,000 parking spaces retrofitted with wiring necessary to charge EVs at multifamily buildings, large worksites, and civic sites such as universities and hospitals.
  • Training and jobs for the installation and maintenance of these charging stations in California.
  • $20 million in cash to go to the California Public Utility Commission.

On March 23, Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. announced he signed an executive order laying the foundation for 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on California’s roadways by 2025.
