350Green, a developer of electric vehicle (EV) charging station networks and SemaConnect, a developer and producer of smart networked electric vehicle charging stations and sophisticated EV station software, announced the purchase of 1,500 ChargePro EV charging stations, the largest commercial order of EV charging stations to date.
As the number of electric cars on the roads increase, so does the demand for convenient charging. 350Green is helping to meet that demand by rolling out a national network of EV charging stations at major retail and commercial locations.
The need for convenient, public charging is growing fast as most major automakers are already producing electric cars, or will be in the near future. The early focus on EV infrastructure has been on installing charging equipment in homes and municipal garages. However, many urban residents don’t have access to home or garage units, and all EV drivers need to have the confidence they can find a charge if their battery runs low while they are on the road.
SemaConnect and 350Green’s partnership aims to give all drivers a chance to participate in the EV revolution by increasing the number of EV charging stations located conveniently near where people live and work. Now, drivers can charge their electric cars while they shop, dine, or entertain themselves in a variety of commercial and retail locations in major metropolitan areas. 350Green’s network is helping to make EV ownership a realistic option for thousands more residents.
Specifically designed for commercial-grade applications, SemaConnect’s ChargePro Charging Station is a sleek, compact charging unit that is easily installed and integrated into developing and existing facilities at multifamily, office, retail, fleet and municipal parking locations.
