The utility is running a $10 million electric vehicle charging state incentive programme
US electric power company, AEP Ohio, has selected Greenlots to participate in its new electric vehicle (EV) charging station programme roll-out. Greenlots has expertise in public DC fast-charging, workplace and multi-family deployments.
The $10m incentive programme will provide 75 easily-accessible public DC fast-charging stations at commercial sites and 300 stations at public sites, workplaces and multi-family complexes within Columbus and throughout Ohio.
The utility company is targeting businesses, apartment complexes and municipalities in its service areas and offers incentives for both charging technology and installation costs depending on the type of infrastructure and accessibility of the charging site.
Through the installation and management of new charging stations, the two companies intend to bring new electric vehicle charging options online for Ohio residents and further streamline the roll-out of additional charging infrastructure in the years ahead.
“This programme exemplifies the importance of partnerships among cities, energy companies and communities as we transform how mobility is powered”
“EV charging infrastructure is no longer viewed as an isolated trend, limited to a few, select states – utilities across the country are realising the benefits of electrified transportation,” said Brett Hauser, CEO of Greenlots. “This programme exemplifies the importance of partnerships among cities, energy companies and communities as we transform how mobility is powered.”
Greenlots said its end-to-end offering allows customers to pick and choose the hardware that they would like to use at their site and includes both mobile applications for drivers as well as charging network management software for site hosts that is hardware-agnostic and easy to use.
It also provides 24/7 customer service to site hosts and seeks to “lighten the load” associated with owning an EV charging station by providing behind-the-scenes support to drivers as well.
