Our friend Rick Rohn from Martinsburg, WV reports that there is a new NRG eVgo Freedom Station at Hagerstown Premium Outlets. Rick was out driving his Nissan Leaf this weekend and stopped by the Outlets in Hagerstown and to his surprise there was a functioning CHAdeMO and a Level 2 EVSE that is installed but not operational yet. The customer service rep at NRG eVgo says the station is in “testing phase” and should be officially open by the end of May, 2015.
This NRG eVgo station apparently has no relationship with the Maryland Energy Administration’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (EVIP) Fast Charger network. When the grant awards were announced in March, Hagerstown Premium Outlets was identified as a location awarded to ChargePoint, not NRG eVgo. Also, the EVIP program specifies that each site must have both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo Fast Charging. This only has CHAdeMO.
The CHAdeMO station is located on the opposite side of the Mall from the Tesla Superchargers there. It is behind the Rack Room Shoes and Children’s Place stores.
