The company was originally founded to fulfill the need for electric vehicle infrastructure solutions in support of the launch of Electric Vehicles (EV) throughout the United States.
Initially, the company was structured to work closely with OEM EV manufacturers, fleet operators, and government agencies to design and build EV charging stations utilizing solar carports to aid in reducing the energy usage onsite and for distributed power generation.
In 2012, in order to move away from a transactional service business model, the company expanded its operations to include design and engineering work in the development of electric and hybrid vehicle technologies to increase the recurring revenue stream from its product portfolio.
The range of vehicle component integration extends from small light-weight electric vehicles, like bicycles and motorcycles, to large transit buses and military vehicles.
The company has developed EV industry standards in collaboration with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).
