Duke Energy Announces EV Infrastructure Program
October 2018

‚ÄčIn October, Duke Energy announced the planned installation of up to 530 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations within its Florida service territory. These charging stations will provide customers with the necessary infrastructure to support the growing number of EVs on the road.

The company is working with several communities and groups to install stations in both residential and commercial areas. Ten percent will be installed in income-qualified communities to make the benefits of cleaner electric transportation available to all customers.

"I'm excited about the opportunities the Park and Plug pilot program will provide for our customers throughout the state," said Duke Energy Florida President Catherine Stempien. "We are committed to providing smarter, cleaner energy alternatives for all our customers."

Duke Energy selected NovaCHARGE LLC, a leading national EV charging solutions provider, to supply equipment, install the charging stations, and integrate services for the Park and Plug pilot program.

"We are truly honored to have been selected by Duke Energy Florida to manage the rollout of the new Park and Plug program," said NovaCHARGE President Helda Rodriguez. "We look forward to working with Duke Energy and expanding EV infrastructure throughout Florida."

This is just one of the many ways electric companies continue to invest in electric transportation.
