The agreement will lower the costs and streamline the purchase and contracting process for government entities planning EV charging projects across the country.

TCPN contracts are available for use and benefit all entities that must comply with state purchasing laws. This cooperative was established to help other governmental entities operate efficiently and economically.
'This contract will make it easier, faster and less costly for government agencies to offer electric vehicle charging services to their employees, customers and the general public,' said Mariana Gerzanych, co-founder and CEO of 350Green. 'As record high gas prices increase interest in EVs among consumers, it's now more important for government agencies to lead the way for easy electric car adoption.'

This contract is positioned for public sector agencies to offer advanced technology that has a positive impact on the environment and meets the needs of citizens while also meeting their obligation to save money,' said Chris Penny, Vice President -- Sales from TCPN.
In addition to streamlined procurement through the TCPN contract, 350Green is offering grant writing services and incentives which can help further lower the cost of installations by leveraging existing tax incentives, rebates or other state and federal programs for electric car infrastructure.
