Green Lodging News: EVCS Fast Charging Network to Use 100 Percent Renewable Energy

June 4, 2021 9:19 pm

A recent article about EVCS in the Energy Management section of Green Lodging News focused on two key areas that set us apart from our competitors: 1) our no-cost turnkey solution that allows site hosts to tap a rapidly evolving new revenue source, and 2) the fact that our charging network will now be powered completely by renewable energy like wind and solar. With more voices calling for clean and green solutions across the entire electrification process, we saw an opportunity to lead the field in not only advancing the case for EVs, but also the way that they’re powered. See the full article below for more details on how we’ve been able to accomplish this groundbreaking feat. Arcadia, CA... Read More


Spectrum News: SoCal Company Looks to Meet Growing Need for EV Charging Stations

May 14, 2021 12:13 am

Recently, our CEO and co-founder, Gustavo Occhiuzzo, was featured in a Spectrum News 1 segment titled “Inside the Issues” with Alex Cohen. He was able to not only convey the challenges we face as we work toward a more electric future, but also the strides EVCS has already made in addressing those challenges as well as some of our most significant achievements. Examples include our deal with LADOT to install DC fast chargers at 57 city-owned lots, our doubling of non-Tesla chargers in LA since last year alone, and the fact that EVCS has become one of the largest and fastest growing installers of EV charging stations on the West Coast in less than three years.

Newswire Press Release: EVCS Fast Charging Network to Use 100% Renewable Energy

April 30, 2021 4:45 pm

One of the most common criticisms foisted on the electric mobility industry is that EVs are not technically carbon neutral since the electricity needed to power them is generated through fossil fuels, including coal and natural gas. This argument is not without merit and presents those of us in the EV infrastructure sector with yet another lofty goal – true carbon neutrality through electrical grids powered by renewable energy sources like wind and solar. And our most recent press release discusses how we at EVCS are doing just that. ARCADIA, Calif., April 22, 2021 (Newswire.com) EVCS, one of the largest fast charger operators on the West Coast, proudly announced today it has contracted 100% renewable energy to power its entire...

The Benefits of Working with CARB and CEC

October 21, 2020 11:00 pm

The California Energy Commission (CEC) bills itself as a pioneer in “leading the state to a 100% clean energy future.” It recently celebrated its 45th birthday and will be launching a “Clean Energy Hall of Fame” by announcing on December 10th awards honoring groups that are successfully contributing to a carbon-neutral California. Similarly, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is tasked with developing initiatives to combat the damaging effects of smog and air pollution – something our state knows a little bit about – and they’ve been instrumental in promoting cap-and-trade, LCFS credits and ZEV programs. This is all to say that these are exactly the sort of organizations we’re proud to work with as we deploy EV charging infrastructure... Read More


Electrifying West Coast Travel

September 22, 2020 10:30 pm

When we bought the Oregon and Washington State legs of the West Coast Electric Highway (WCEH) earlier this summer, our goal was to promote the idea of responsible mobility by providing a carbon-neutral infrastructure that allowed EV drivers greater freedom of range in their travels. We hoped this would be welcomed news during a time when so many other distractions were dominating the news cycle. But as the pandemic persisted and the effects of the lockdown continued to ravage local economies, we realized that our contiguous network of DC fast chargers might serve another equally noble if somewhat unintended purpose: to facilitate much-needed tourism activity at some of the Pacific Northwest’s most picturesque points of interest.  Environmentally friendly forms of...
