Electrify America taps Greenlots to support $2B community-based EV charging initiative
- Electric vehicle charging company Greenlots has been selected by Electrify America to support a $2 billion investment in charging infrastructure across the United States.
- Under the agreement, Greenlots will provide "end-to-end deployment" of EV charging infrastructure for up to 900 stations in large cities, including Boston, Seattle, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego and more.
- The program will focus on workplaces, apartment buildings and condos, and Greenlots will work with businesses and facility owners to simplify the process and provide turnkey charging stations.
Electrify America, the group that is administering the Volkswagen emissions scandal settlement funding, has selected Greenlots to roll out hundreds of charging stations across the country, as part of a $2 billion zero emissions vehicle investment plan.
Greenlots got the nod "due to the company's leadership in deploying turnkey charging infrastructure" along with broad experience working with utilities, cities and automakers, the two groups said in a statement. The company plans to provide end-to-end deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, working with business owners to offer a charging solution that is not difficult to install or manage.
Greenlots CEO Brett Hauser said "Electrify America's partnership with Greenlots ensures that this unprecedented investment supports a broader vision in which electricity is the fuel of the future ... this nationwide infrastructure initiative to bring more chargers to workplaces and multi-unit dwellings is vital."
Based in Los Angeles, Greenlots operates in more than a dozen countries.
In July, Greenlots received funding from a utility investment group, Energy Impact Partners.The amount of funding was not disclosed, but the two said it would help the utility industry work towards electrification of the transportation industry.
