EV Connect announced it is working with two of Arizona’s largest utilities to deliver EV charging infrastructure for clean transportation. In separate agreements, Salt River Project (SRP) in Phoenix and Tucson Electric Power (TEP) in Tucson have selected EV Connect as one of the industry partners eligible to provide EV network and charging management for a collective 750 new electric vehicle chargers for the public, at workplaces, and at multi-unit dwelling properties.
Under each of the two Arizona-based utility programs, EV Connect will provide certified charging hardware, installation and operations support resources, and open-standards-based EV charging network management platform. Participants in the SRP and TEP programs that select EV Connect can benefit from the company’s vast project management experience, joint marketing, lead generation initiatives, and compliance with utility requirements through automated data reporting.
With EV Connect, participants in the SRP and TEP programs can select from a wide range of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) from multiple hardware manufacturers, which can then be centrally managed and monitored with advanced charge station analytics using the EV Connect platform. In anticipation of advanced grid management requirements, EV Connect also features compliance with the OpenADR standard, required for future DR (demand response) programs.
