GM Increases Community Charging Program
GM continues to increase its Dealer Community Charging Program with the installation of the first community charging stations in Wisconsin and Michigan.
Since the program was announced in late 2021, nearly 1,000 GM dealers have enrolled, which is nearly a quarter of all GM dealers in North Ame GM continues to increase its Dealer Community Charging Program with the installation of the first community charging stations in Wisconsin and Michigan.
Through the program, GM and its dealers are working together to expand charging access in communities. Participating dealers are eligible to receive up to 10 19.2-kilowatt Level 2 charging stations.
The goal is for GM to install up to 40,000 Level 2 charging stations across the U.S. and Canada through the program, nearly doubling the current number of public Level 2 charging stations. These charging stations will be available to all EV drivers — not just GM EV customers — and will deliver the most power available to a Level 2 charger.
“Nearly 90% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a GM dealership. Our dealers are deeply involved and trusted in their communities and are well positioned to determine locations that expand access to EV charging, including at small businesses, entertainment venues, schools and other popular destinations,” said Hoss Hassani, vice president of GM EV Ecosystem, in a statement. “Our dealers are an important enabler of our all-electric future and in many cases will be the catalyst for EV adoption in communities that would otherwise have limited EV infrastructure. ”
FLO has been selected as the charging station provider for the program and supplied the initial charging stations. The company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility in Auburn Hills, Michigan, will serve as the primary production location for the program’s charging stations, supporting the development of a North American EV charging supply chain.
GM is investing nearly $750 million to expand charging infrastructure across public domains.
