Host Sites Needed for N.C. Electric Vehicle Fast Charge Stations
Advanced Energy (advancedenergy.org), a nationally-recognized nonprofit based in Raleigh, N.C., committed to working with stakeholders to help them understand, plan for and implement successful emerging transportation programs, is seeking qualified sites in the Charlotte and Research Triangle Park metropolitan areas of North Carolina to host quick charge electric-vehicle fueling equipment for public access.
Host sites are locations at existing commercial or retail enterprises that are interested in partnering with Advanced Energy for the installation and operation of electric vehicle charging equipment at their location. Chosen sites will receive, free of charge, a direct current (dc) fast charger valued over $25,000. The dc fast chargers are ideal for high traffic areas at shopping centers, gas stations and convenience locations along major transportation corridors and can charge a typical plug-in electric vehicle in 30 minutes or less. Host sites will benefit from increased visibility and foot traffic as well as a heightened sustainability profile for their business.
As the number of electric vehicles continues to grow, dc fast chargers are coming to the market. In an effort to build the market for EVs, fast chargers will help address range anxiety.
