Arizona Startup Plans to Electrify National Transportation Grid

Arizona based company, GoE3 says it plans to build a network of Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations along U.S. interstates, with the first stations to open as part of an unnamed rally and reality show being filmed this summer. The company says the stations will be installed at 50 to 75 mile intervals along I-10, I-20, I-40 and I-70, with 50 planned by next month and another 450 slated to be opened within the next three years.

ReVOLT is also an AZ startup that converts gasoline cars to all electric drive. Arizona has an abundant supply of solar power which can be leveraged to sustain the electric drive infrastructure once more people convert to electric and a photovoltaic sustained infrastructure begins to look more appealing to drivers looking to unplug from the grid. In the mean time, having companies like GoE3 supply charging options along major transportation routes will help to get this party kick-started.
