PGE selects EVBox as provider in new electric vehicles charging station program

Deal includes up to 2560 stations and 10 years of network services in PG&E territory in California in coming years

New York and Amsterdam, May 8th, 2018 - EVBox, the leading global manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software, has been selected by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) as the first supplier for the EV Charge Sponsor portion of the EV Charge Network program.

The EV Charge Network is an EV charging station program for workplaces and multi-unit dwellings in northern and central California. Through the program, PG&E will pay for and build the infrastructure for customers from the electric grid to the charger. The program consists of two options for customers — EV Charge Sponsor and EV Charge Owner.

  • For EV Charge Owner projects, customers themselves will own, install and maintain the EV charging station and receive a rebate off the cost of their charging stations.
  • For EV Charge Sponsor projects, PG&E will own, install and maintain the EV charging station and customers will pay a low participation fee per station. 

EVBox is the first company selected by PG&E for both the Charge Owner and Charge Sponsor part of the program.

Accelerating California's transition to clean transport

PG&E, which is based in San Francisco (CA), is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric energy companies in the United States. With the EV Charge Network program, PG&E and its partners are helping to accelerate California's transition to a clean transportation future by offering electric vehicle charger installation at customer locations in PG&E's service territory across northern and central California.

We are very happy to be chosen by PG&E to help grow its charging station network around California. This confirms our position as a true global leader, with an established network of over 55,000 chargers and a strong long term vision on how to accelerate the rEVolution. Because of this and our extensive experience with large public charging projects - for example 2000+ public charging stations on the streets of Amsterdam, our financial strength and OCPP experience - we are in a perfect position to support PG&E in moving forward with its clean transportation efforts.  Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO EVBox
