Rogers Services, one of the country’s leading electrical service providers, is helping build a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EV) nationwide. The company is heading to San Antonio, Texas next week for Plug-In 2012, a national EV trade show, for the second year in a row.
Rogers Services installed charging stations in Raleigh prior to last year’s Plug-In show and announced a partnership with Mitsubishi Motors to install three stations at 252 dealerships nationwide. Since last year’s show, Rogers Services has installed charging stations at approximately 85 percent of the dealerships.
“We believe there is a future in electric vehicles and Rogers Services is excited to be a part of building the market here in the U.S.,” said Chris Rogers, president and chief executive officer of Rogers Services. “In order for people to want to drive EVs, charging stations have to be widely available. Rogers Services helps lay that foundation.” Rogers Services provides a centralized, self-performing team to design, install, maintain and troubleshoot electric vehicle (EV) charging stations nationwide.
In 2012, Plug-In is being held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio from July 23 – 26. The show displays the latest and greatest innovations and research on hybrid and electric vehicles, and brings together all parties involved in the industry – from automakers and charging equipment manufacturers, to utilities and component suppliers and contractors. The four day event includes breakout sessions, a media ride-n-drive and a public night. Rogers will be exhibiting at a booth throughout the week.
