As part of a coast-to-coast electric vehicle (EV) charging network supported by the federal government, Tritium DCFC Limited (Tritium) (Nasdaq: DCFC) and DC-America have teamed together to deliver direct current (DC) fast chargers along America’s highway system. In order to provide an effective and simple-to-install EV charging system, DC-America will now offer its adaptable charging station infrastructure outfitted with Tritium’s industry-leading fast chargers.
The new cooperation is anticipated to meet federal Buy America requirements and qualify for funding under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program.
Through an accessible charging network, “Tritium and DC-America share the similar objective of electrifying transportation nationally,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter . We’re excited to collaborate with a market pioneer on a charging solution that is authentically American-made. We anticipate drivers all over the nation being served by DC-America stations with Tritium chargers.
The modular, skid-based charging systems from DC-America enable quick deployment with little interruption on site and an expedited permitting procedure. The systems allow for simple expansion at any charging point and are perfect for installations along highway corridors. Tritium’s 150kW DC fast charger, which is incredibly versatile and adaptable, is now housed in DC-PKM150 America’s system.
The PKM150 is the perfect charger to work with DC-cutting-edge America’s system, according to Hunter. It was created for operations and infrastructure deployment that are both efficient and affordable. Together, the products of our two companies produce an EV charging system that is unparalleled in terms of effectiveness, dependability, and scalability.
Since Tritium’s worldwide manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee, just opened, all of DC-components America’s system’s are expected to be in compliance with American standards. Buy America specifications as recommended by the Federal Highway Administration (FWHA). The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, sometimes referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, funds 52 state and territorial NEVI initiatives, and it is anticipated that the system will be eligible for all of these programs. The NEVI program aims to create a nationwide network of accessible, trustworthy, and reasonably priced EV chargers with an expenditure of $5 billion over a five-year period.
Tritium was an obvious decision when choosing which chargers to match with our NEVI-compliant system, according to DC-America President Nathan Bowen. “Tritium is a great partner in our efforts to bring accessible and practical charging infrastructure across the country, and their reputation speaks for itself.”
With more than $1.5 billion in NEVI Formula money, the Biden-Harris administration declared in September that it had approved the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plans of all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. As stated by the U.S. With this investment, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation will be able to install EV chargers along more than 75,000 kilometers of highway nationwide.
Millions of EVs will be able to be charged through the extensive network of charging stations, assisting in the US’s transition to an electric, cleaner future.
“America must lead the electric car revolution,” said US Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg at an press event . “America ushered in the modern automobile era a century ago.” By collaborating with states, unions, and the private sector to establish a historic national charging network that will make EV charging available to more Americans, the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help us win the EV race.
