Advanced Energy and other North Carolina leaders of Plug in Electric Vehicle (PEV) advancement (including Asheville-based Brightfield Transportation Solutions) are teaming up to bring thirty (30) public Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFCs) for PEVs to the state. The purpose of this effort is to serve the growing needs of a traveling public that is increasingly electrified.

Advanced Energy is seeking qualified host sites at commercial, retail, municipal and state locations to host DCFC equipment for electric vehicle fueling. Host sites can either own the equipment or allow a third-party vendor to own and operate the station. Host sites that choose to own the Fast Charge equipment will receive, free of charge, a DCFC station valued at over $25,000. Equipment owners will be responsible for all costs associated with installation, operation and maintenance of the stations.

Complete project description and application is available at: (

Applications for hosting a DC Fast charge station are due September 27th, 2013. For questions, please contact Charles Young at
