NRG eVgo and Simon Property Group introduced the first EV charging station in the country that can support all EV charging standards. The site, dubbed "Freedom Station"® is located at Fashion Valley mall in San Diego California. The charge station features both SAE Combo and CHAdeMO DC fast charge connectors.  It also supports the widespread J1772 Level 2 EV charging standard.

The first charging station in North America to feature both the SAE Combo and CHAdeMO fast charging standards, the Freedom Station is designed to support both current and future charging technology. BMW and Chevy recently announced support for the SAE Combo standard. The Nissan Leaf uses the CHAdeMO standard. These DC fast chargers can deliver up to an 80% charge in less than 30 minutes. The Freedom Stations also include standard 240-volt J1772 “Level 2” chargers to service electric vehicles that do not have a fast charging option. Level 2 chargers deliver range at a rate of 12 – 25 miles per hour.
