Electric vehicle charging company Greenlots has been selected by Electrify America to support a $2 billion investment in charging infrastructure across the United States.
They will be sited in metropolitan regions that include the cities and surrounding areas of Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, San Diego, and Seattle.
Electrify America is partnering with SemaConnect, EV Connect and Greenlots for this project.
While the plan is to put them in more than a dozen cities around the country, California is really the focus of the effort. "We are honored that Electrify America recognized our significant presence and success in these very large markets, and entrusted us with these very important opportunities". There are still opportunities for site hosts to take advantage of this program by contacting EV Connect.
EV Connect's deep experience in the management of large, multi-vendor EV ecosystems will provide an efficient, reliable and easy-to-use experience for these communities, the utilities that serve them and drivers that rely on a robust fueling network. Electrify America's community-based charging stations will boost public access by using nonproprietary connectors and charging protocols. Rather than provide EV owners with quick-charging options, VW hopes its more affordable solution will perfectly suit those looking to charge their EVs during work hours or while they're at home. The EV Connect platform provides charge station-agnostic command & control; enterprise and energy systems integration via an open API; driver communications and support; and demand-response functionality across multiple charging networks.
