SemaConnect to supply PG&E’s charging infrastructure
The North American infrastructure provider was selected as an approved vendor for Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) EV Fleet programme. Under the programme, PG&E customers can receive free EV charging infrastructure, as well as funding for EVs and additional chargers.
The EV Fleet programme was initialized to support California’s emission targets. By providing customers with charging infrastructure and support to purchase an electric vehicle, the company hopes to help speed up the electrification of transport. As Kevin Zhen, sales manager as SemaConnect puts it: “California has set aggressive goals to decrease emissions statewide. Transportation is the largest contributor to air pollution, and PG&E’s program will help companies looking to decrease their impact. We look forward to serving businesses converting their fleets.”
This marks the second instance of PG&E working together with SemaConnect, as the charging infrastructure supplier was previously chosen as a partner in an EV charging rebate programme. California has also previously engaged with similar programmes, as San Diego Gas & Electric was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to build charging infrastructure for medium-duty and heavy-duty electric vehicles used in transit and logistics operations in April.
