NRG Energy is taking a Texas, deregulated approach to the electric car charging field and going for a privately financed charging network in Houston. The “eVgo” network will offer customers deals from $49 to $89 a month that can include semi-fast home charging devices and fast-charging stations from Aerovironment planned for Walgreens, Best Buy and H-E-B parking lots around the city — and it also has a deal with Nissan to make the eVgo the exclusive charging arrangement for Houston-area buyers of the upcoming Nissan LEAF electric sedan. Texas’s deregulated power market allows NRG to sell the service through its own retail electricity providers — Reliant Energy and recently acquired Green Mountain Energy — as well as competitors like Direct Energy and TXU Energy. Translating the model to more regulated power markets could be tricky — but NRG, along with rental car partner Hertz, want to bring eVgo to San Antonio and Austin, two monopoly municipal utility markets in Texas.
