The electric vehicle charging solutions company EV Connect has been awarded a $1.8 million contract by the California Energy Commission to complete new parts of the West Coast Electric Highway, according to an email sent to EVObsession and CleanTechnica.
The recently awarded contract stipulates the creation of 11 new dual electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging and Level 2 charging stations — to be built along segments of the California 99 and Interstate 5 highways.
