Founded in 2008 and based in Bowie, Maryland, SemaConnect is a leading provider of electric vehicle charging stations to the North American commercial, residential, and fleet segments.
In his comments to Vice President Harris, Mr. Reddy emphasized the importance of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in new legislation. SemaConnect displayed its Series 8 public EV charging station next to several electric vehicles from other American EV companies.

As a leader in the EV charging industry, SemaConnect was proud to demonstrate our smart Level 2 solutions as we look forward to charging ahead.”
