ALCO BUILDING SOLUTIONS, INC. (ABS) AWARDED “FIRST OF ITS KIND” EV CHARGING MOBILITY HUB
Auburn, California, Dec 4, 2020 – ZERO EMISSIONS TRANSPORTATION IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES: ABS announced this morning that it has been awarded a contract to build a mobility hub to offer zero-emissions transportation to underserved neighborhood’s in Sacramento, CA.
ABS was selected for this project based on their vast experience within the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) ecosystem. As a design-build contracting firm, ABS have an impressive resume of clients over the last 20+ years delivering projects of this nature. ABS also “owns & operates” a robust network of publicly accessible electric vehicle chargers throughout the State of California acting as a critical component to the States electrification goals, and roadmap.
Green Technical Education and Employment (Green Tech), ABS’ client, is a community-based, non-profit organization charged with providing quality workforce skills, education and health strategies to maintain sustainable communities.
“One of the major problems we have is transportation to our programs,” said Simeon Gant, executive director of Green Tech Education, which has two training centers in Oak Park and one in Del Paso Heights. Its programs help train students in clean energy technology, construction, sustainability, utilities, manufacturing and other fields.
The mobility hub may be the first of its kind in California, featuring a direct-current electric car fast charger (DCFC) and Level 2 chargers for electric vehicles, which will be available for free to residents who qualify. The space will also be a transit hub for an electric bus and ride-hailing service for the neighborhood, according to the plans submitted to the city. The mobility hub will take what is now a blighted empty lot and turn it into an aesthetically pleasing and landscaped area that serves the community, Gant said.
The Green Tech Mobility Hub will be a 12-car surface parking lot, with room for electric busses to make stops, and featuring landscape, trees, free WIFI, electrified benches, electrified bike racks and an area for a food truck to park as well.
ABS intends to break ground on this project by late this year, with project completion forecasted in early Q2 2021.
