Two-Year Pilot for EV Charging at SFO will include 4 DCFC Chargers from Greenlots
SAN FRANCISCO – June 19, 2014 – Greenlots, a global provider of open-standards based technology
solutions for electric vehicle (EV) networks, today announced it will provide the first open standardsbased
EV charging stations for San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The two-year pilot with
Greenlots is the result of a recent grant awarded to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District
(BAAQMD) for SFO from the California Energy Commission (CEC). The CEC grant, which totals $6M, will
fund EV charging infrastructure throughout California. On June 19, 2014, SFO will host a press
conference to highlight its Clean Air Vehicle programs, vehicles and infrastructure.
As part of the two-year SFO pilot, Greenlots will handle the network management platform, equipment
procurement, maintenance and related support services for four DC fast chargers. The chargers will be
located strategically at the SFO cell phone lot giving travelers easy access to plugin, charge, and trek to
their next destination in under 30 minutes. SFO currently has the largest number of plugin vehicle
spaces of any domestic airport and this next wave of open standards-based EV charger installations
supports SFO’s larger Clean Vehicle Policy vision and goal to future proof new infrastructure
“We’re excited to add fast chargers to the Clean Vehicle amenities at SFO,” said Chief Operating Officer
Ivar Satero. “This gives electric vehicle users yet another reason to make SFO their airport of choice.”
Conveniently located DC fast chargers could have a tremendous impact on accelerating plugin adoption
to mitigate range anxiety and build a clean transportation network that enables the public to charge on
the go. Studies have shown that the utilization of public Level 2 chargers is only 10 percent in corridor
charging, but 35% for workplace charging.
“Not surprisingly, California led close to one third of all plugin vehicle sales last year in the U.S. and that
growth is driving the demand for a broad network of DC fast chargers that is accessible to all drivers,”
said Brett Hauser, President of Greenlots. “We’re pleased to add our open standards-based EV chargers
to support the larger vision of the CEC, BAAQMD and SFO of a future-proofed electric mobility world.”
