ZEV debuts Charging in Palm Springs; Awarded $2.7M for ZEV infrastructure
ZEV launched its first public charging stations with a Ribbon Cutting event at the iconic Palm Springs Art Museum today. The Mayor of Palm Springs, Lisa Middleton, the Palm Springs Art Museum’s CEO, Adam Lerner and ZEV Station’s CEO/CTO, Jesse Schneider spoke about their respective commitments to the environment and welcomed the launch of ZEV. The charging dispensers have the capability of SAE J1772 CCS1 and Tesla charging allowing both types of vehicles to charge.
ZEV Fleet Co., a subsidiary of ZEV Station, was also launched today at the Ribbon Cutting. It plans to demonstrate a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) model, by leasing an all-electric step vans to last-mile delivery fleets using AC & DC Charging. This will enable last mile delivery fleet owners to evaluate the benefit of a Class 2 EV delivery van and entice them to sign up for ZEV offtake agreements.
ZEV has recently been awarded three California ZEV infrastructure Grants totaling $2.7M: CEC Rural Charging, EnergIIZE Jumpstart, and Heavy-Duty Vehicle Incentive (HVIP) for ZEV Fleet’s electric vans. The grants will help accelerate their next phase in ZEV Infrastructure, a highway environmental oasis.
