Located on the first floor of Westlake Shopping Center’s parking garage adjacent to The Home Depot, eVgo Freedom Station site includes 480V "DC Fast Chargers" and standard 240V "Level 2" chargers compatible with any electric vehicle with a plug.

eVgo DC Fast Charger can provide up to an 80% charge in about 30 minutes, and has been designed to easily incorporate a second DC Fast Charger. The station also offers a Level 2 charger, which can provide up to 24 miles of range per hour of charge.

Kimco vice president of leasing and asset management David Jamieson said, "We’re thrilled to have our first NRG eVgo Freedom station up and running at Westlake."

"Californians drive more than one-third of the electric vehicles in the country, so building a network of quick-charge stations at Kimco centres, which are easily accessible by commuters, is a valued amenity to our customers and retailers." Jamieson added.
