Sacramento, CALIF., December 02, 2014 – The Coca-Cola Company has partnered with NRG eVgo, a subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc., to join Governor Jerry Brown’s call to have 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on California’s roads by 2025. Coca-Cola will provide electric vehicle (EV) charging at seven of its facilities across California. eVgo will install and manage the charging stations to provide workplace charging for Coca-Cola employees with EVs.
Coca-Cola is participating in the eVgo Ready for Electric Vehicle (REV) program to support their employees’ sustainable choices. The REV program provides qualified workplaces with turn-key EV charging solutions, including charger operation, maintenance and driver support 24 hours a day. The Level 2 chargers, dedicated for the use of individuals working at the location, are compatible with all EVs.
