The company says it has been working for a large US retailer to design, engineer, procure and construct 6,000 large-scale level 2 (L2) and hundreds of level 3 (L3) fast-charge systems. This network includes 250 EV chargers per installation location, across 23 large commercial and industrial locations.

One major challenge of this project is to equip utility-scale feeder equipment, which is not typically used for distribution centres or other commercial buildings. However, a typical commercial building may be able to accommodate the electrical load of approximately ten L2 chargers. Consequently, ramping up the install number to hundreds of EV chargers per location requires a great deal of experience, expertise, and coordination between all the project stakeholders.

To accomplish such large-scale EV charging installations, Core Development has been working closely with over 20 different local electric utility companies across 12 states to help power the electric fleet and support corporate goals such as reducing carbon emissions and implementing sustainability initiatives. EV charging installation locations span across the United States, with a wide geographic footprint from California to Massachusetts to Florida.

"Understanding the transition to EV charging and associated federal, state, and local utility incentives is critical to navigating an economically favourable path forward. These regulatory insights have allowed us to help many organisations transition to cleaner energy options and support corporate ESG-type objectives," said Henry Cortes, CEO and founder of Core Development Group. "Helping organisations convert a standard fleet vehicles to EVs takes time, strategy, experience, and education."
