Greenlots to deploy EV charging stations across USA
January 3, 2018
California-based Greenlots has been selected to deploy fuelling stations in eight cities across the USA as part of Electrify America's $2bn investment in electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The community-based electric vehicle charging initiative is focusing on workplaces, apartment buildings and condos. Greenlots will provide end-to-end deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure for up to 900 stations in metropolitan areas including Boston, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento and San Diego. The company plans to work with businesses and facility owners to provide turnkey charging stations, making it easy for property owners to offer EV charging.
Electrify America will fund this initiative as part of its $2bn investment in charging infrastructure across the USA.
Greenlots has experience working with utilities, cities and car makers. Its national reach, local expertise, experienced team and broad network of strategic partnerships will be key throughout this deployment.
Electrify America's deployment is the latest milestone in the global expansion of charging infrastructure and EV availability. Global policy leaders from many countries, including China, France and the UK, are joining with global car makers, such as Volkswagen, in committing to an electric mobility future. This demand suits Greenlots' software and turnkey services that allow for grid flexibility and low total costs for charging networks to future-proof EV infrastructure assets including those deployed in this initiative.
Electrify America's community-based charging stations aim to boost public access by using non-proprietary connectors and charging protocols.
"Electrify America's partnership with Greenlots ensures that this unprecedented investment supports a broader vision in which electricity is the fuel of the future," said Brett Hauser, CEO of Greenlots. "As we usher in a revolutionary convergence of the automotive and energy sectors, this nationwide infrastructure initiative to bring more chargers to workplaces and multi-unit dwellings is vital."
Electrify America, which is headquartered in Reston, Virginia, will invest $2bn over the next ten years in zero emission vehicle infrastructure and awareness. The goal is to enable millions of Americans to discover the benefits of electric driving and support the build-out of a nationwide network of workplace, community and highway chargers that are convenient and reliable.
