Transportation is now the largest source of carbon emissions in the US. To address this, governments from national to state level, are accelerating incentives for Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) and their infrastructures funding a massive shift to EV fast charging and hydrogen refueling. California’s response to global warming, a 100% zero-emission vehicle mandate by 2035, also necessitating a shift in the infrastructure away from fossil fuels. ZEV Station™ has the vision to help remove the vehicle from the carbon equation™ with ultra-fast, carbon-free fuel for both electric and hydrogen vehicles.

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.

“Today we welcome the first step for us starting DC Fast charging in Palm Springs, California. ZEV has the mission to replace fossil fuels with zero-carbon energy. It’s our firm belief that EV charging and later Hydrogen will replace gasoline & diesel, respectively. ZEV is planning next year to have a larger site, a Premier location off the I-10 Highway to showcase exactly this.”
