Greensboro, NC, October 3, 2023 — Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a Vontier Corporation (“Vontier”) (NYSE: VNT) business, and Skycharger, a leader in EV charging solutions, today announced the EVerse Fully Hosted program to provide fuel retailers and fleets with new financing and service options for EV charging infrastructure. While fuel retailers are well positioned for deploying EV charging infrastructure due to their great locations and site amenities, funding this infrastructure remains a challenge for many operators. Programs such as the Federal Government funded National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (“NEVI”) program have helped, however, significant funding gaps persist.
The EVerse Fully Hosted program addresses these gaps by offering site hosts a simple path to acquiring, deploying, and maintaining EV charging infrastructure provided by Gilbarco Veeder-Root with no cost to them.
“Finding solutions that accelerate EV charging adoption for fuel retailers and fleets is a priority at Gilbarco Veeder-Root,” said Deepesh Nayanar, Gilbarco Veeder-Root's Head of North America e-Mobility. We recognize that funding EV charging infrastructure remains a key hurdle to fuel retailers and are delighted to partner with Skycharger to bring a zero-cost opportunity to our customers while enabling high uptime through deployment of Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s EVerse EV charging managed service.”
Skycharger will deploy a white-labeled version of Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s EVerse EV charging managed service. By combining Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s innovative technology with Skycharger’s funding capability, this comprehensive model provides a solution for site hosts looking for a hassle-free option to install EV charging.
According to Andy Karetsky, Skycharger’s CEO, “Partnering with Gilbarco Veeder-Root to deploy EVerse enables Skycharger to bring our innovative funding model to a broader group of customers furthering EV charging adoption while ensuring a world class charging experience to our site host customers.”
