Fleet charging solution provider TeraWatt Infrastructure has signed up Nevada taxi service Desert Cab as a customer. TeraWatt will provide Desert Cab with software, operations and maintenance services, including EV education and training for Desert Cab’s drivers. The company will use data acquired from TeraWatt’s platform to improve the efficiency of its charging systems to support its growing EV fleet.
Desert Cab and its sister company Virgin Valley operate approximately 400 taxi cabs in the Las Vegas area. Desert Cab’s fleet is nearly 10% electrified, and the company hopes to electrify 50% its entire fleet over the next five years. In 2021, the company added 25 Level 2 chargers and two dual-port DC fast chargers at its facilities, and is in the process of adding lots more.
“Nevada’s recent sustainability mandates and corresponding investments in new technology have strengthened efforts for fleets of all sizes to begin electrifying,” said George Balaban, Owner of Desert Cab. “Partnering with TeraWatt enables us to overcome the challenges associated with fleet electrification, and will provide our drivers with the necessary support and resources to embrace electric vehicles.”
“By providing Desert Cab with a tailored set of electrification tools and comprehensive training, we remove the complexities of undergoing a daunting electrification transition,” said Peter Cohen, Director of Business Development at TeraWatt. “Our mission is to provide reliable charging solutions that empower fleets to seamlessly advance their sustainability efforts.”
