Contracts for New York City, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Raleigh multi-unit dwelling and workplace charging
LOS ANGELES, CA, December 18, 2017 – EV Connect, a leading provider of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging solutions, which includes an innovative and robust platform for managing the entire EV Connect charging ecosystem, today announced that it had won contracts from Electrify America for multi-unit dwelling and workplace EV infrastructure in the two largest markets in the United States – New York City and Los Angeles – and the cities of San Jose, CA and Raleigh, NC.
Electrify America, which is investing $2 billion in U.S. electric vehicle charging infrastructure, selected EV Connect to acquire, install and manage at least 630 charging ports at multi-unit dwelling and workplace sites within the greater New York City, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Raleigh markets. The award and subsequent agreement between Electrify America and EV Connect include ten years of software and hardware maintenance. That’s in addition to ongoing management services for these locations.
“The New York and Los Angeles markets are not only the two largest cities in the U.S., but represent more than 50% of the current EV driver populations”, said Jordan Ramer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for EV Connect. “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.”
Work on these projects has already begun, and all locations will be operational within 15 months. There are still opportunities for site hosts to take advantage of this program by contacting the company. Additionally, EV Connect will make the data generated by the charging stations and some of its management capabilities available. That’s to a nationwide management platform in the works for Electrify America. This platform will enable them to have visibility into their network supporting these markets.
The company’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. That’s in addition to the utilities that serve them and drivers that rely on a robust fueling network. As with all other of their locations, the hardware and software will be built on an open, standards-based architecture. EV Connect is the nation’s largest and most successful provider of an open, standards-based platform for EV charging.
These awards follow the recent New York State Energy Research Development Agency (NYSERDA). That’s in addition to Cleaner Greener Communities and California Energy Commission (CEC) West Coast Electric Highway program grants to EV Connect. The goal is to complete key ecosystem build-outs in New York and California.
