I stopped by the Olney Village Center today to check on an NRG eVgo Freedom Station that has been under construction for a few weeks and found the CHAdeMO charger up and seemingly running.
Olney, Maryland is in the middle of a big EV charging “desert” so this was nice to see. There was a blue box that will eventually house a Level 2 EVSE in a parking spot in another row. No word on when that will be running.
NRG eVgo usually conducts a few weeks of testing before announcing new Freedom Stations on their official map. Don’t expect this station to have consistent uptime in the testing interval. In fact, your regular eVgo card may not initiate a session, so be prepared to call customer service to see if they can remotely start the charging during the testing interval.
