eVgo has installed and will manage 60 charging stations at Sony Pictures Entertainment’s historic Lot and its offices in Culver City in order to provide workplace charging for their employees with electric vehicles.
Sony Pictures Entertainment elected to participate in the eVgo Ready for Electric Vehicle (REV) program. The REV program provides qualified workplaces with turn-key EV charging solutions, in addition to providing charger maintenance and driver support 24 hours a day.
The Level 2 chargers, dedicated for the use of individual employees, are compatible with all EVs, fully charge most during the workday and integrate seamlessly with eVgo’s comprehensive network of home and on-the-go charging stations giving range confidence to EV drivers wherever they choose to charge.
Beginning in 2008, Sony Pictures Entertainment began offering eco-incentives to employees who choose to purchase a qualifying hybrid, plug-in hybrid electric or electric vehicle through its Alternative Vehicles Incentive program. To date, over 300 vehicles have been purchased through the program, with a daily average of 90 electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles parking at the studio’s headquarters in Culver City. This charging infrastructure supports “Sony Pictures A Greener World” – the environmental initiative of the studio – by empowering employees to choose more eco-friendly ways of commuting.
eVgo is building a comprehensive network of fast-charging sites in the U.S. conveniently located along major transportation corridors as well as the infrastructure to support charging at multi-family residences and workplaces. The eVgo network is designed to support EV drivers whenever and wherever they choose to charge – at single family or apartment residences, at work, on the road, or even at the airport
