The nationwide community-based electric vehicle charging initiative is focusing on workplaces, apartment buildings, and condos
Greenlots will accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles with the launch of hundreds of stations in eight major US cities, including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
E-mobility and smart charging solutions provider Greenlots has been selected by Electrify America to support its nationwide community-based electric vehicle (EV) charging initiative, 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 City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento and San Diego.
Greenlots will 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 their $2B investment in charging infrastructure across the United States.
Greenlots was chosen for the initiative as it builds its nationwide network of community-based chargers, due to the company’s leadership in deploying turnkey charging infrastructure and its broad experience working with utilities, cities, and automakers. Its national reach, local expertise, experienced team and broad network of strategic partnerships will be key throughout this massive deployment.
As Electrify America works to promote and support the increased adoption of EVs, Greenlots will provide a technically advanced, interoperable and customer-friendly charging network.
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 United Kingdom, are joining with global automakers, such as Volkswagen, in committing to an electric mobility future.
Electrify America’s community-based charging stations will boost public access by using nonproprietary 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 $2 billion over the next 10 years in zero emission vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure and awareness. The investment will 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.
