Carter School District in Kentucky has selected Texas-based Universal EV Chargers to its transition to electric vehicles.
Carter School District secured federal funding from the Environmental Protection Agency to move its fleet to electric. It selected Universal EV Chargers through a competitive bidding process to supply charging infrastructure for its electrified buses.
Working closely with the school district, Universal EV Chargers will install 12 dual-port 60 kW chargers with 24 ports, ensuring each bus has its own charging port.
“We are excited to electrify our fleet with Universal EV Chargers and promote a sustainable future for our students,” said Ronnie Cooley, Director of Maintenance at Carter School District. “Their innovative charging solutions will ensure the efficiency of our electrified buses, and we look forward to future collaborations.”
By providing EV charging infrastructure, Universal EV Chargers says it aims to facilitate the adoption of EVs and reduce transportation’s carbon footprint. “This is crucial in promoting sustainable living and creating a greener future for the next generation”, it notes.
Universal EV Chargers is a Plano, Texas-based EV charging solutions provider and a division of green energy provider Universal Green Group.
