- 1 EVGO stock price action gives out strong bullish signals.
- 2 Operators and manufacturers of EV chargers in the U.S. brace for slowdown.
- 3 “Made in America” can hinder the growing EV and related industry.
EVGO stock price has displayed bullish signs since the beginning of February. Evgo Inc. operates EV charging sites powered by renewable electricity. Several charging equipment manufacturers, charging station operators in the US, according to a report by Reuters, are preparing for a slowdown in production and deployment. The hindrance is attributed to the compliance with terms of “Made in America” – a $7.5 billion federal program, aimed at accelerating the domestic industry.
EV Charger Industry with “Made in America”
“Made in America” was laid out by the White House last month as part of President Biden’s effort to build an electric-friendly highway system by 2030. The program is aimed at contributing to the country’s climate goals, encouraging domestic production and creating more local jobs.
EVgo has 850 fast-charging stations across the US. It imports chargers from a South Korea based manufacturer – SK Signet Inc.. The cost of transferring manufacturing infrastructure is high. Charging equipment manufacturers and station operators are now compelled to build in America. EVgo is unsure whether the government will defer on certain requirements of the program. SK Signet is planning to open a factory that can produce 10,000 DC fast-charging units per year factory till 2026, per Reuters.
The program requires the assembly of chargers locally and charging station enclosures to be made locally. Initial focus of the program will be on fast-charging infra for highways following which slow (overnight charging) stations will be considered.
The dearth of fast-charging stations has been highlighted by officials and firms. However, the enforcement of the program’s requirements could slow the production process driving up costs.

If the primary resistance is breached, EVGO stock price can reach near $7.70, trying to mark a new high for 2023. The RSI moves closer to the half line and shows sellers losing grip.
