EV Connect offers a cloud-based software platform for managing EV charging. The company recently won a $1.4-million contract funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to install and manage 200new charging ports at 50 locations.
EV Connect will manage the charging stations, host locations, electric utility interaction and the driver experience. It will also conduct marketing and outreach programs to local communities, and manage a financing component to make installing chargers more economically viable for site owners.
The hardware and software used in the project will be built on an open standards-based architecture.
“These projects will help New York meet Governor Cuomo’s clean transportation goals and reduce emissions in the transportation sector,” said John B. Rhodes, President and CEO of NYSERDA.
“EV Connect has been a large provider of EV charging stations throughout New York State for many years through programs sponsored by NYSERDA and other entities,” said Jordan Ramer, EV Connect CEO. “EV Connect’s deep experience in the management of the entire EV ecosystem will continue to provide an efficient, reliable and easy-to-use experience for the communities, utilities and drivers.”
