Tritium & EvGateway Bringing EV Fast Chargers To More Places

For EV drivers, every new support system, every new facility, and especially those fast charging stations with enough charging ports for each EV driver pulling up to charge, are immensely appreciated. That first sigh of relief — “Oh, I found you” — quickly followed by, “and you’re working!” If you’re in luck, that’s followed by, “You’re are working fast!” A new partnership will bring about that series of responses to many more people.

In North Carolina, it is generally finding one that is first the concern. After that, finding one that has open ports … is not the worry. More often, in North Carolina, the worry is, will it be turned on? Will it be working? Working chargers, online chargers, are a critical issue in some regions. Hours added to the trip can turn into another day if one has to search for working chargers.

In California, from what I read, it is finding an open port, one that is not in use, that is more often the time issue. More charging infrastructure is necessary every day as EV adoption takes off. Tritium & EvGateway have great news for California, a new project funded by the California Energy Commission’s California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) to drive DC fast charging adoption in announced.

“To expand DC Fast Charging locations in urban areas throughout California, Tritium and EvGateway have partnered on a new project in a popular retail center in Orange County’s Buena Park. The property is owned and operated by EVForce and features four of Tritium’s award winning RT50/50kW DC Fast Chargers.”

“Tritium’s stellar customer support team works alongside our site manager to track data in real-time and observe charging trends to identify future improvements. It is important for us to have customer support 24/7 and a system that is cost-effective to upgrade, which is what we get with our partnership with Tritium.”

Tritium’s RT50/50kW DC fast charger has the smallest footprint of any DC fast chargers in the world, making it easy to install one in tight spaces.

“There’s nearly 1.5 million EVs in the United States, and with less than 75,000 public charging outlets across the country, the demand for publicly accessible charging continues to dramatically increase,” said Mike Calise, Tritium’s President of the Americas.

“True energy freedom can only be realized when drivers don’t have to think about where to charge. The availability of DC fast charging must be virtually everywhere that drivers spend time.”

Tritium and EvGateway are now working on several other installations in urban landscapes across California, and outside of California. This first project was apparently seen as a notable success, notable enough to partner on other projects at least.

CleanTechnica has been following Tritiums’ work for years as it has supplied much appreciated fast chargers around the world.

Tritium has offices in the U.S., Australia, and the Netherlands. Tritium solely focuses on DC fast charging (DCFC) and high power charging (HPC).
