EVgo car charging stations have made it to Town. Owners of electric powered cars can now pull up to these units— that have the look and feel of a gas pump— and ‘charge her up.’
Gloria Heater recently stopped to charge her Nissan Leaf at the Walmart in Castle Rock. “We drove up from Colorado Springs and saw on the map that there was a new station here,” she commented.
After users pull up and plug the hose into the front end of the car, they can lock up and kill time at nearby shops like Walmart.
To fully charge her car takes around 30 minutes, costing approximately $12.00. On that charge, Heater’s Leaf will drive for 127 miles, before needing to recharge at the station.
Making the process user friendly has also given way to an App for your phone. “We just use an App called PlugShare,” said Heater. The App links directly to EVgo account, automatically charging your credit card.
“We just got this car and love how easy it is to use,” she said.
