LS Power has announced that it has signed a conclusive agreement to acquire EVgo from Vision Ridge Partners. EVgo is the largest and most reliable public fast-charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States and will continue to operate as a stand-alone entity under the LS Power umbrella of companies. The deal is expected to close in early 2020.
Founded in 2010, EVgo is a market leader in developing, building, owning and operating the largest electric vehicle fast-charging network in the United States. Its industry-leading footprint of more than 750 sites includes over 1,250 fast chargers and extends across 34 states.
In 2018, EVgo’s public fast-charging network powered more than 75 million electric miles and offset an estimated 17,000 metric tons of carbon emissions. In 2019, EVgo became the first EV charging network in the US to be powered by 100 percent renewable energy. Additional network capacity expansion underway will further accelerate EVgo’s contribution to decarbonizing the transportation sector, which has been identified by the Energy Information Administration as the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions.
“EVgo is a well-established leader in EV charging, with an exceptional team dedicated to building, owning and operating the most extensive public fast-charging network in the United States,” said David Nanus, co-head of Private Equity at LS Power. “This acquisition provides LS Power the opportunity to support the continued expansion of EVgo’s unmatched charging infrastructure platform, already present in 66 metropolitan markets, and invest further in the company’s growth as the market for EVs continues to expand.”
As a result of this transaction, EVgo will be positioned to increase its growth while maintaining its industry leadership position and best-in-class reliability and customer service, enabling the rising number of EVs to charge quickly where and when they choose.
“EVgo has been leading the way to make going electric a reality for more American drivers by siting reliable fast charging where people want and need to be,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. “We have enabled 80 percent of Californians and more than 100 million Americans to live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger, numbers that will increase as we continue to build across the country. This news means that we can accelerate access to fast charging as we grow our network as part of the LS Power platform.”
