EVgo is expanding its level of service, with more locations coming soon.

EV charging company, EVGo entered into a new supply agreement with Delta Electronics. Delta Electronics, a “global provider of power and energy management solutions and leader in EV charging solutions,” will supply EVgo with 1,000 DC fast chargers. These DC fast chargers will be capable of speeds up to 350kW. It all dovetails nicely with EVGo’s new partnership with GM and Pilot Company’s plan to add more charging stops at Pilot brand truck stops and gas stations.

EVgo said that Delta Electronics is crucial to expansion. “EVgo is dedicated to making EV charging convenient and reliable for all, which makes it critical that our network is comprised of high-quality chargers backed by a track record of innovation, reliability, and technology leadership,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo.

EVgo is just one of the many EV charging companies. The brand claims to have more than 1,900 fast chargers, and 29,000 level 2 chargers. A sizable presence, but it’s often regional, with parts of the midwest, and major highways being dominated by Electrify America or Chargepoint. The EVgo Pilot/GM plan would fill in those gaps, with superfast DC fast charging at every Pilot location in the US.

Reliability has been one of the most frustrating parts of EV charging and ownership. Hopefully, EVgo’s faith isn’t misplaced in Delta Electronics, and it truly is one of the most reliable providers of charging equipment.
