Late in 2019, I photographed the opening of car chargers from EVgo – Pike 7 Plaza. In another step in the continuing development of Tysons, these electric car chargers added power options for the growing electric car market. At this time, VIPs from EVgo, Federal Realty, and the Commonwealth of Virginia attended the ribbon cutting ceremony. Stacy from TEDxTysons referred me to cover this event. As can be seen, this station is in the heart of the newest developments in Tysons.
Being a technology geek, this opening overall sparked my interest. Although they are becoming more popular, I am not that familiar with electric cars. While covering this event, I learned more about the partnerships between EVgo and Virginia to create more charging places throughout the state. In short, they have made it possible to travel throughout Virginia in an electric vehicle with the range of the cars, and the distance between stations. Even if gasoline powered vehicles are still the majority, this feels like the future!
