Tritium announces NEVI-compliant EV charging system

Tritium’s NEVI charging system delivers 150kW of power to four EVs simultaneously through a modular fast charger system.

Tritium DCFC Limited is now accepting orders for the company’s first product offering for the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. The charging system will include four of Tritium’s 150kW PKM150 charging stations, along with two power rectifiers.

President Biden established the NEVI program upon signing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in 2021. The NEVI program provides $5 billion in funding over five years to help build a coast-to-coast network of qualifying DC fast chargers.

Last September, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approved the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plans for all 50 states, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico, granting them access to FY22 and FY23 NEVI funding. Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Alaska, and Hawaii have begun to allocate their first rounds of NEVI funding, and most other states are anticipated to provide access to funding in 2023. This initial round of funding totals more than $1.5 billion to help build EV chargers covering approximately 75,000 miles of federal highway nationwide.

Tritium says its first NEVI product is expected to achieve the FHWA’s Build America, Buy America Act waiver milestones, which includes two phases announced by the FHWA. First, starting March 23, manufacturers were required to conduct final assembly and all manufacturing processes for any iron or steel charger enclosures or housing in the United States. By July 2024, manufacturers must also domestically source at least 55% of the cost of components used in charging equipment.

Tritium’s NEVI charging system delivers 150kW of power to four EVs simultaneously through a reliable and modular fast charger system, the company says. Tritium adds it expects to expand its offerings for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law programs, including the NEVI program and Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (CFI) discretionary grant program, as the company’s new products enter the market.
