Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has selected EVBox as the first supplier for the utility’s EV Charge Network program.
The EV Charge Network is a program aimed at workplaces and multi-unit dwellings in northern and central California. Through the program, PG&E will pay for and build the infrastructure for customers from the electric grid to the charger.
Customers have two options: they can be an EV Charge Owner or an EV Charge Sponsor.
For EV Charge Owner projects, customers will own, install and maintain the charging station and receive a rebate for part of the cost.
For EV Charge Sponsor projects, PG&E will own, install and maintain the charging station, and customers will pay a participation fee.
“This confirms our position as a true global leader, with an established network of over 55,000 chargers and a strong long term vision on how to accelerate the rEVolution,” said EVBox CEO Kristof Vereenooghe. “Because of this and our extensive experience with large public charging projects – for example 2,000+ public charging stations on the streets of Amsterdam, our financial strength and OCPP experience – we are in a perfect position to support PG&E in moving forward with its clean transportation efforts.”
