LINDEN, N.J. — Turtle & Hughes continues to strengthen its commitment to sustainability and powering a better tomorrow by promoting and extending the eco-friendly electric vehicle (EV) market. It has announced that it is a nationwide distributor partner for ChargePoint Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. ChargePoint is a leading provider of EV charging stations.
According to ChargePoint, “Transportation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation is key to slowing climate change and making sure our planet stays a healthy place to live. Electric vehicles (EVs) fight climate change by powering transportation with electricity, not fossil fuels. Driving an EV can cut fossil fuel emissions in half, or get rid of them entirely when renewable energy sources are used.”
“We are committed to encourage and support sustainable solutions in all of our supplier relationships that will change our world for the better,” explained Jayne Millard, Chairman and Co-CEO of Turtle & Hughes. “ChargePoint has made a commitment to deploy 2.5 million charging spots by 2025. As we help them grow their network and power this new wave of transportation, we are doing our part to accelerate the future of electric mobility. More options to charge while on the road will make it easier for drivers to choose, clean-powered vehicles.”
According to a Bloomberg report, Electrical Vehicle Outlook 2019, “over 2 million electric vehicles were sold in 2018, up from just a few thousand in 2010.” The report says to expect “annual EV charging passenger sales to rise to 10 million in 2025, 28 million in 2030 and 56 million in 2040.” The Department of Energy estimates that there are currently 29,439 EV public and private charging stations across the U.S. with a total of 87,984 charging outlets. It also found that drivers with access to charging stations are six times more likely to switch to EVs.
In addition to competitive pricing, and charger and service bundles exclusive to ChargePoint distributor partners, Turtle & Hughes specialists also offer value added services, including technical expertise and design, installation, and rebate assistance.
Charging stations have applications in a wide range of industries including apartment and condo complexes, workplaces, fleets, municipals, utilities, parking facilities, healthcare, education, entertainment, new construction, hospitality, retail, fleets, and more.Tagged with Turtle & Hughes
