EVCS, ODOT and Gov. Kate Brown Celebrate The Completion of First Phase Upgrades to West Coast Electric Highway

May 24, 2022 10:10 pm

LOS ANGELES – May 24, 2022 -- EV Charging Solutions (EVCS), one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network operators on the West Coast, today celebrated the highly anticipated completion of first phase upgrades to Oregon’s portion of the West Coast Electric Highway (WCEH). In partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the upgrades highlight the first of many upcoming milestones for EVCS as they invest in rapid expansion of their West Coast DC fast charging network. Spanning from the Canadian border to Southern California, the WCEH segment in Oregon will reach 69 chargers upon its targeted completion in early 2023, providing charging capability for all compatible EVs on the road.


Top 10 EVs Coming in 2022 That Have Us Charged Up

May 17, 2022 9:51 pm

“2022 is shaping up to be a good time to buy an EV,” says a recent article on CarsDirect.com. “A combination of increased range, lower prices, and more electric car models… make buying or leasing an EV a better choice than in years past.” We couldn’t agree more. We’re genuinely enthused by many of the new EVs that manufacturers have been touting online and at car shows. And not just because they look like the ultra-cool, hyper-sleek transports of the future we dreamed about driving when we were kids. No, we’re also pumped because many models will debut with trailblazing new features that are sure to encourage greater participation in electric mobility, the cornerstone of our mission.

4 Ways EVCS is Addressing Pain Points of EV Driving

April 11, 2022 8:33 pm

The electric tide is coming. From our vantage point on shore, we can see the wave of innovation barreling toward us, ready to crest at any moment, bringing with it game-changing new methods of mobility that are more efficient, sustainable and better for the environment. From Lexus’s recent announcement to go all-electric in the next eight years to Hertz’s trailblazing deal to purchase 65,000 Polestar EVs to the federal government’s five billion dollars in funding through the NEVI Formula Program, the flood of electrified transport will be swift and incontrovertible. However, naysayers who have hooked their (gas-powered) wagons to the dying tech of fossil fuel-based ICEs still abound, with such stubbornness likely to result in them becoming fossils themselves as the rest of the world evolves around them. Many cite a litany of pain points, whether real or perceived, in explaining their reticence to go electric while, unbeknownst to them, EVCS has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to turn that pain into gain. How so, you ask? Below are four of the top pain points cited by EV critics and what we’re doing to relegate them to the dustbin of history.


How the Ukrainian Crisis Could Affect the EV Market

March 7, 2022 7:00 pm

As the conflict in Ukraine continues to escalate, concerns over how a prolonged incursion may affect global markets has become a frequent topic of discussion, even as major world powers issue a raft of sanctions against Russia in an effort to end the conflict sooner. There are certain to be ramifications for the EV industry specifically as a consequence of the dispute, some of which we’re already starting to see, although their duration and severity are still in question. Here are some of the most prominent.


How EVCS is Helping Change America’s EV Charging Experience

March 3, 2022 5:12 pm

As most of us know, Congress recently approved $7.5 billion in spending for new EV charging installations as part of the larger infrastructure bill, which we expect will help facilitate a speedier transition away from fossil fuels. Even with EV sales increasing in recent years, reports suggest that 25 percent of all carbon emissions still come from the tailpipe, so anything the government can do to kick things up a notch is surely welcome. However, even with such a sizable investment, many challenges still exist that network operators like EVCS will have to help overcome. In a recent article on TheVerge.com, several prescient examples were cited of core areas to focus on if we want to make mass EV adoption a reality. Below are a few such areas and how EVCS is addressing them.


The Key to Becoming Carbon Negative

We hear a lot about the desire for carbon neutrality these days, and while that’s noble indeed, we at EVCS have set our sights on even loftier goals. Our mission is to become carbon negative, meaning not only have we reduced carbon emissions to negligible levels, but we have offset more carbon than we contribute to the environment through techniques like avoidance, sequestration and carbon capture.

Americans today want the following from the products and services they use: 1) freedom; 2) convenience; 3) simplicity; and 4) value. Let’s face it, we’re constantly being inundated by an increasing barrage of choices in just about everything, from the media we consume to how we interface with co-workers to the way we get our groceries. Options that rise to the top are those that offer the clearest and cleanest solutions for the lowest costs.


A Barrage of New EV Models Requires More Infrastructure

January 12, 2022 6:55 pm

According to a recent article in Forbes, Americans will purchase approximately two million EVs in 2022. Dr. Shelley Francis, co-founder, and director of EVHybridNoire notes that demand is increasing “as public perception of the technology shifts from novelty to mainstream,” thanks primarily to the plethora of new EV models hitting the market and a rapid expansion of infrastructure spearheaded by network operators like EVCS.
