Southern California Edison awarded Cal Pacific Constructors Inc. (CPCI) a $2.5M contract to provide general and electrical construction services for its pilot Charge Ready Program,
comprising the deployment of 1,500 electric vehicle charging units in 180 cities throughout Edison’s service territory. The EV charging stations will be sited at business, campus, entertainment, recreational, and government locations where people park their electric vehicles for extended periods, usually 4 hours or more. The program also calls for at least 10% of the charging stations to be installed in disadvantaged communities.
CPCI’s work areas include: installation of panels, step-down transformers, electrical conductors, electrical and data conduits, junction boxes, stub-outs, bollards and safety lighting, disconnects, switches, fuses and related site improvements. Also, CPCI will work closely with Edison team members on program coordination and inspection requirements by third parties.
CPCI’s team looks forward to supporting Edison in this new pilot project, representing the first large-scale EV Charging Station program in Southern California Edison’s service territory.
About Edison’s Charge Ready Program
The “Charge Ready” program will help move California closer to its objective of putting 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025, which will in turn support the state’s goal to reduce greenhouse gases and meet deadlines for federal clean air standards.
