Eaton Corp. says that Plug In Carolina has selected Eaton to supply and support a network of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in eight South Carolina cities. The project was previously awarded to another firm but has been reassigned to Eaton.
The project, which launched June 15, is funded by two state grants secured through the South Carolina Energy Office and features a family of charging stations with multi-port configuration. The stations will be deployed in Greenville, Spartanburg, Blythewood, Columbia, Charleston, Rock Hill, Union and Myrtle Beach at key hubs in each city.
The program will provide publicly accessible EV charging stations at locations such as municipal parking garages, public streets and retailers. Depending on host-city requirements, the stations will be enabled for smart communications to facilitate the monitoring and management of the statewide network of chargers.
