SCE Spends $22 Million on Charging Infrastructure

Southern California Edison’s Charge Ready program will bring representatives of local businesses and other organizations together to learn how they can take part in a pilot program that will add as many as 1,500 electric vehicle charging stations to SCE’s service area.

This is a great example of a partnership between electricity suppliers and the those seeking to install EV charging spots. SCE funds the infrastructure that connects their power to the EV charging station hardware. The EV charging hardware is owned and maintained by the property owner.

Participants will have the ability to select equipment suppliers and charging services based on their site’s needs.

At Park to Spark™ we encourage open-minded approaches to EV charge spots. We believe that each opportunity for EV parking spots is unique. Please contact us so we may help you with your unique solution.

Fast Charger at Harrisburg International Airport

Park to Spark™ celebrates all types of EV charging spots. This article details a new DC Fast Charge site at Harrisburg (PA) International Airport.

Park to Spark™ would recommend the additional installation of dozens of Level 1 Charging Spots at this airport. Yes, many EV drivers will visit the airport for just a short time-which is best served by DCFC (Fast chargers). However, hundreds of cars park overnight at the airport. And, inexpensive Level 1 EV Charge Spots can easily serve the needs of overnight parked cars-at a fraction of the cost of DCFC.
