Transportation electrification & EV charging

Written by: the ecoPreserve team
OUC is a community-owned utility, providing water and electricity to 250,000 Orlando residents
  • EV charging accessibility research resulting in grant funding
  • Design development for the EV resiliency hub

As the City of Orlando’s utility partner, OUC supports the city’s goal of 100% renewable power and net-zero emissions by 2050.

To support the transition to clean transportation, ecoPreserve conducted business case analyses and participated in the planning and design of the community’s Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI). This helped OUC secure a $500,000 grant from the State of Florida to develop the largest EV hub in the state.

OUC continues to use the business case studies as they further the electrification efforts at Orange County Public Schools and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

Today, ecoPreserve team members are managing design and construction phases of the downtown EVCI hub. The 22 high-speed level 3 charging stations at that hub will efficiently serve travelers along the I-4 corridor.
