About EV Realty
EV Realty develops, deploys and owns charging infrastructure critical to electrifying commercial fleets in the U.S at scale. The company accelerates the adoption of large EV fleets by focusing on the fundamental constraint all electric fleets face: low-cost, reliable and expandable access to grid-scale power. EV Realty is developing a network of grid-optimized, large-scale EV charging hubs for delivery, logistics and services fleet customers. Our Powered Properties™ serve multiple commercial fleets in secure, high-power locations with dedicated charging access and availability, and are located proximate to major logistics corridors within last-mile delivery/duty range of population centers. By aggregating multiple fleets with shared private infrastructure in grid-ready locations, EV Realty charging hubs reduce upfront and recurring costs for fleet operators, optimize charging times and provide high utilization rates.
