ABM Installs Multiple EV Charging Stations At USAA Properties

Partnering with long-time client USAA Real Estate Company (USAA), ABM (NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, recently installed 17 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across three USAA owned and operated facilities – including a property in Arlington, Virginia, designated as LEED® Platinum by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The other properties are located in Sacramento, California, and Tampa, Florida.

ABM’s early involvement in the EV infrastructure market helped them secure a grant for USAA from the U.S. Department of Energy.

“USAA was quick to see the benefits of the program and partnered with ABM to bring in state-of-the-art EV charging equipment. Electric Vehicles will play an increasingly important role by reducing the country’s dependence on foreign oil while emitting few to zero emissions while driving,” said Ken Sapp, Vice President, ABM Energy.

The EV charging stations at all three sites are part of the ChargePoint® Network. They are fully operational and open to drivers of plug-in electric vehicles. Through use of the ChargePoint® Network, a variety of smart phone applications and in-car navigation systems, EV drivers can see the location, status and price of each charging station and get turn-by-turn navigation assistance to the site. Once there, they can get SMS or email alerts when their car is fully charged or if there is a charging interruption. Trip tools can show drivers charging stations along their route and can track greenhouse gas and gasoline savings.

“Building out the country’s EV charging infrastructure is an important part of achieving energy independence, as it helps to drive EV adoption and ensures that drivers of these vehicles have a positive, convenient experience,” said USAA’s Brenna Walraven. “With this installation of 17 new state-of-the-art EV stations, we were delighted to continue our close work with ABM in helping to drive sustainability, which benefits the environment generally and specifically provides important benefit to our tenants and the communities our properties serve.”
