VACAVILLE, CA – SemaConnect is proud to announce the installation of ten smart electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the Travis Federal Credit Union Corporate Headquarters in Vacaville, CA. The installation is one of the first of many planned for Northern California under Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) EV Charge Network Program. The recently launched three-year program aims at installing 7,500 electric vehicle (EV) chargers at multi-unit dwellings and workplaces throughout PG&E’s service territory.
Travis Federal Credit Union benefits greatly from the EV Charge Network Program. PG&E paid for the construction of the infrastructure from the transformer to the parking space, which is often 60-80% of the total project cost.
This installation, along with two other EV Charge Network installations, 10 stations at Albertsons Corporate HQ in Pleasanton, CA, and another 10 stations at a location in Milpitas, CA, will help to expand the EV infrastructure network in Northern California. As such, SemaConnect has leveraged its expertise in the EV sector to become the EVSE provider of choice for participants of the EV Charge Network Program. “We believe that this program will greatly expand on Californian EV infrastructure, leading to more electric vehicles on the road and great environmental and economic benefits for all Californians,” said Mahi Reddy, CEO, of SemaConnect.
“This is program is a game changer, ” continued Reddy. “Forward-thinking utilities like PG&E are helping to build the infrastructure for electric vehicles. As the adoption rate increases, everyone benefits.”
The charging stations installed at Travis Credit Union are state-of-the-art dual mounted smart EV stations with cable management. This allows for ten vehicles to charge simultaneously at a “Level 2” charge (a rate of approximately 25 driving miles per hour of charge). The stations are offered to Travis Credit Union employees and customers at a rate of $1/hour. “We look forward to a fruitful partnership with Travis Credit Union, and we expect the PG&E program to drive innovation and EV infrastructure in the years to come,” concluded Reddy.
