About Us
EV Realty develops, deploys and owns charging infrastructure critical to electrifying commercial fleets in the U.S at scale. The company accelerates the adoption of large EV fleets by focusing on the fundamental constraint all electric fleets face: low-cost, reliable and expandable access to grid-scale power. EV Realty is developing a network of grid-optimized, large-scale EV charging hubs for delivery, logistics and services fleet customers. Our Powered PropertiesTM serve multiple commercial fleets in secure, high-power locations with dedicated charging access and availability, and are located proximate to major logistics corridors within last-mile delivery/duty range of population centers. By aggregating multiple fleets with shared private infrastructure in grid-ready locations, EV Realty charging hubs reduce
upfront and recurring costs for fleet operators, optimize charging times and provide high utilization
rates.
 
We deliver exceptional outcomes for our customers by investing in the best people, partnerships and projects. We are inherently optimistic and believe in the power of system-level change. We
communicate thoughtfully, problem-solve rigorously and seek to continuously do better. And we
deliver on our commitments. We are looking to collaborate with passionate, thoughtful people who want to make a real impact. Come join our team and help drive the transition to a zero-carbon transportation future. Learn more about EV Realty and how it is transforming fleet charging at www.evrealtyus.com
