Washington, DC – SemaConnect has won the opportunity to help Electrify America build a premier network of workplace and multifamily EV charging stations in 12 cities across the United States. This investment by Electrify America is its first targeting multifamily and workplace locations and is part of Electrify America’s plan to invest $2 billion over the next 10 years in zero emission vehicle infrastructure and awareness.
SemaConnect’s award includes performing full lifecycle services for Electrify America, including project site selection, site design, EV charging equipment delivery, site construction and on-going network and maintenance services for the duration of the Electrify America 10 year program. In performing these program management responsibilities, SemaConnect will tap leading workplace and multifamily commercial property firms to identify host sites across 12 target cites which include: Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Portland (OR), San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
The Electrify America program funds the purchase and installation of EV charging stations as well as their maintenance for up to 10 years. “This is huge for the entire industry,” said Mahi Reddy, CEO of SemaConnect. “A rising tide lifts all boats, and this is something that will benefit everyone in the industry. It also helps consumers make an easier transition to electric vehicles. The more locations there are to charge vehicles, the more EVs we will see on the road.”
SemaConnect’s Electrify America contract also includes delivering SemaConnect’s smart EV charging equipment, cloud-based management software and network technology to participating workplace and multifamily properties. Since the start of the mass market EV industry in 2011, SemaConnect’s EV charging technology has established a track record of reliability and exceptional performance, and has embraced open standards and interoperability.
