Tritium Supports Electrification of U.S. Federal Transportation Operations, Will Supply DC Fast Chargers Through GSA
Tritium modular DC fast chargers are available for purchase to federal agencies through the GSA’s five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement
TORRANCE, Calif., September 27, 2022—Tritium DCFC Limited (Tritium) (Nasdaq: DCFC), a global leader in direct current (DC) fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), today announced that its modular fast chargers are available for purchase by government entities through the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) dedicated to EV-related equipment.
U.S. federal agencies can now purchase Tritium’s industry-leading modular fast chargers via any company partners that are current Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) holders and have been awarded a BPA contract. This announcement is the latest example of Tritium’s commitment to electrifying North America through its state-of-the-art DC fast chargers. It also comes on the heels of the opening of the company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee.
“The future of transportation across the United States is electric, and the federal government is leading by example,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “After opening one of the country’s only DC fast charger manufacturing facilities in August, Tritium is proud to support the federal government’s efforts to electrify its transportation operations.”
As the Biden Administration continues its pursuit of electrifying the entire federal fleet, this BPA simplifies the process of obtaining EV-related equipment and ancillary services, including Tritium’s modular DC fast chargers. According to the GSA’s most recent inventory, the federal government’s more than 650,000 vehicles collectively traveled over 4.2 million miles last year. Also in 2021, the Biden Administration issued an executive order designed to accelerate the electrification of the U.S. government fleet, of which EVs currently comprise less than 1%.
“Tritium is pleased to see the United States government’s commitment to building accessible, reliable fast charging services to support an electric federal fleet,” Hunter continued. “By simplifying the EV charger buying process and encouraging collaboration across the public and private sectors, the BPA is helping to rapidly electrify transportation across America.” This announcement follows the August passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which provides $370 billion in climate change investments to help reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030. The legislation includes significant tax breaks for businesses that purchase new medium- and heavy-duty EVs and new chargers.
Founded in 2001, Tritium (NASDAQ: DCFC) designs and manufactures proprietary hardware and software to create advanced and reliable DC fast chargers for electric vehicles. Tritium’s compact and robust chargers are designed to look great on Main Street and thrive in harsh conditions, through technology engineered to be easy to install, own, and use. Tritium is focused on continuous innovation in support of our customers around the world.
