TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As 2020 comes to an end, Tritium, a leader in DC fast charging, and ZEF Energy, creators of the ZEFNET managed charging network platform, are joining forces to spread some holiday cheer by providing free charging across the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. With electric vehicle (EV) sales in the US expected to increase by 70 percent in 2021, the two companies seek to implement DC fast charging infrastructure to support and accelerate the transition to e-mobility.
"With President-elect Joe Biden's aggressive plan to implement countrywide emission reduction mandates, many more drivers will switch to electric vehicles," said Matthew Blackler, CEO and Founder of ZEF Energy. "We hope our partnership with Tritium on this program is the first of many as we look forward to developing a vast network of DC fast chargers."
ZEF Energy is an electric vehicle service provider using Tritium's DC fast chargers as their hardware, then incorporating their proprietary software to create their own unique system. ZEF Energy strives to provide their ZEFNET smart charging software platform and program solutions that will allow utility companies, fleet operators, and public charging owners to operate chargers efficiently and in a way that supports beneficial electrification.
"Tritium is dedicated to installing DC charging throughout the United States and around the world, and this mission could not be more important than it is today as we begin to look forward to wide scale adoption of electric vehicles," said Mike Calise, President of Americas at Tritium. "We are happy to partner with ZEF Energy to help create an extensive DC charging network in an area that hasn't traditionally been a hub for EVs. Through this partnership, DC charging services are now available in the heartland of America, which will unleash rapid EV adoption."
There are a total of 25 RT50 chargers involved in this project, including 18 in Minnesota, five in North Dakota, and two in Wisconsin.
