Tritium to supply fast chargers to US government agencies

Fast electric vehicle charger company Tritium has announced that its chargers are available for purchase by government entities through the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) on EV-related equipment.

The USA’s federal agencies can now purchase the company’s chargers through company partners that are current Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) holders with a BPA contract, which are designed to save administrative time and cost.

The news follows the opening of Tritium’s first US factory in Lebanon, Tennessee, adding to the company’s original factory in Brisbane, which is the company’s global headquarters.

“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,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter.

The US government recently announced the goal of a national network of 500,000 EV chargers on the country’s highways and in its communities, and signed an executive order aiming to accelerate the electrification of the U.S. government fleet, which is currently less than 1 per cent EVs.
