Tritium and EVCS to Deploy Additional 300 New Electric Vehicle Fast Chargers in California, Oregon, and Washington

Tritium will provide 300 more 50kW variants of the Company’s award-winning RTM fast charger for EVCS’s network buildout.

[TORRANCE, Calif., July 28, 2022] — Tritium DCFC Limited (“Tritium” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: DCFC), a global leader in direct current (“DC”) fast chargers for electric vehicles (“EVs”), is partnering with EVCS, one of the largest EV fast-charging network operators on the West Coast, to deploy 300 new chargers across California, Oregon, and Washington. The order consists of 300 50kW Tritium RTM fast chargers, making the total Tritium DC fast charger contribution to the EVCS network over 800. With more states expected to follow California’s legislation mandating 100 percent of new vehicles sold generate zero emissions by 2035, partnerships like this are critical to ensuring public fast charging can meet the increased demand driven by the expected mass consumer adoption of EVs in the coming years.

EVCS aims to enhance the accessibility of public fast charging both by simplifying complex pricing and increasing location coverage. With plans to reach 1,500 chargers by the end of 2023, EVCS’s carbon neutral network and unlimited subscription charging plan will provide an increasing number of public charging options and significant savings to EV drivers.

“EVCS is excited to expand its partnership with Tritium to install more than 300 Tritium DC fast chargers on the West Coast by mid-2023,” said Gustavo Occhiuzzo, CEO and founder of EVCS. “Tritium’s versatile catalog of fast charging stations has allowed EVCS to rapidly become one of the fastest-growing owner-operators of DC fast chargers on the West Coast, home to almost 50% of all EVs in the U.S.”

In November 2021, Tritium and EVCS announced an agreement to add over 500 DC fast chargers to EVCS’s network, many of which have already been installed as a part of the upgrade of the West Coast Electric Highway. Building on this initial investment, the new fast chargers will be installed in high-traffic areas, including retail locations and transit centers, underserved communities where access to chargers is limited, and near highways and tourist centers. The collaboration significantly contributes to EVCS’s network growth, with plans to extend service to more than 35 new cities across California, Oregon, and Washington as well as increase charger density in existing EVCS communities.

“EV charging infrastructure is growing at an unprecedented rate in the US, and it’s critical that this rollout provides drivers with equitable access to public fast charging,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “Through our work with EVCS, we’re proud to help democratize the EV charging experience to provide greater accessibility to all current and future EV drivers. We’re excited to be part of this technology revolution and to support the growth of our long-term customer and partner, EVCS.”

Tritium recently unveiled a new project with the Motor Fuel Group Forecourt Network that would deploy over 100 DC fast chargers in the United Kingdom and overall support the country in the movement toward a cleaner environment. The Company also announced its largest global manufacturing facility will open in Tennessee, gaining the attention of President Joe Biden, and has achieved several significant partnerships with industry leaders, including BP, Shell, Wise EV, and Osprey. Earlier this month, EVCS announced a new raise of $68.8 million that will go toward helping the company expand its charging network services throughout the West Coast and ultimately assist EVCS in achieving its goal to double its network footprint by 2023.

Dot.LA: West Coast Electric Highway Project Charges Ahead as EVCS Adds Stations

Our latest advances with the West Coast Electric Highway, which we purchased in the summer of 2020, have been skillfully summarized in Zac Estrada’s recent piece for Dot.LA. The article elaborates on our partnership with Oregon’s DOT as we upgrade existing infrastructure to accommodate newer EVs with larger battery packs while simultaneously increasing charging speed. He also mentions new installations we’ve put in the ground along key interstate highway routes and our initiative to add charging ports for electric bikes and scooters. Ultimately, the WCEH will become a linchpin in the quest to facilitate wider EV adoption, not only on the West Coast, but throughout the country. Read Estrada’s entire article below.
