Australian EV-charger manufacturer Tritium has placed a strong vote of confidence in President Joe Biden’s infrastructure legislation announcing the construction of a new manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee.
“Tritium’s investment in a U.S.-based, cutting-edge facility for manufacturing is part of our strong push toward global growth in support of the e-mobility industry,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “We are thrilled to work with the U.S. Federal government and the State of Tennessee on this initiative.”
Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law aims to provide $7.5 billion of federal funds for the creation of a network of 500,000 EV chargers along US highways.
The plant is expected to produce more than 10,000 fast charger units per year starting in 3Q22 with a peak capacity of 30,000 per year.
According to evadoption.com a site dedicated to EV research the number of automatic vehicles in the US will grow from 526,000 in 2021 to 2.71 million in 2026.
