The collaboration brings together more than 100 years of power management history with deep automotive OEM expertise to simplify deployment of EV charging infrastructure for fleets

Intelligent power management company Eaton and Charge Enterprises, Inc. through its portfolio company, Charge Infrastructure, announced today a strategic collaboration to fast-track electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure deployment for fleets and car dealers.

The Importance of Infrastructure for EV Fleet Charging

With the U.S. aiming for EVs to make up 50% of all vehicle sales by 2030 and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) providing tax credits up to $40,000 for commercial vehicles, access to convenient, reliable and affordable EV fleet charging is essential. Eaton and Charge are providing complete EV charging infrastructure for fleet electrification, including projects incorporating renewables and enabling net-zero models.
