One company plans to double the number of EV chargers in Florida
Florida has a high number of registered electric cars, but no comprehensive plan to develop charging infrastructure. A company that aims to fill that void.
Last week, Invisible Urban Charging (IUC) announced plans to install 6,000 EV chargers in Florida. According to the company’s press release, that would double the number of chargers in the state and make IUC the largest charging operator in Florida.
IUC, a US-based company with a New Zealand-based parent company, will begin by partnering with property developer Lincoln Property Company to deploy the charger in a multi-purpose tower. New in Orlando. Dubbed the Truist Plaza at Church Street Station, it is located near a historic train station.
The chargers are mostly 80-amp Level 2 AC stations, says IUC green car report, and it plans to fully roll out all of Florida’s chargers within the next 12 to 18 months.
