Brooklyn-based electric charging, ride-share and micro-mobility company Revel has announced plans for five new super-hubs across multiple NYC boroughs, reports Electrek. This new addition will triple the amount of fast-charging stalls for locals.
Revel aims to accelerate EV adoption, however, another key element of their business strategy is charging infrastructure, developing and installing level 3 chargers across populated urban areas. So far, Revel has fewer than 30 fast-charging stalls across the city but has remained set on expanding throughout the city.
The company's current flagship super-hub is located in Bed-Stuy and is the largest public fast-charging depot in North America. However, Revel still intends to open additional hubs in 2023.
"The only way mass EV adoption will ever happen in New York City is if the charging infrastructure is there to support it," stated Revel founder and CEO Frank Reig.
"We need high-volume, public sites in the neighborhoods where people actually live and work, and that’s exactly what Revel is delivering with our growing Superhub network. This is the biggest fast charging expansion our city has ever seen, and it’s a huge step toward making our EV transition a reality."
Revel's plans for its five new charging hubs across the five boroughs include 20 stalls in Red Hook and 16 stalls at the historic Dime building in South Williamsburg.
When complete, Revel’s network of chargers in NYC will total over 160 stalls, allowing the company to dominate over 80% of the city’s current public fast-charging infrastructure.
