EvGateway has developed a software portfolio, which enables operators of electric vehicle chargers to manage and operate their chargers. The software also allows consumers to locate and reserve available chargers, see amenities available at the chargers, view charging rates, and pay for their vehicle charging.

The EvGateway network is integrated with all major EV charger manufacturers, such as Siemens, Tritium, BTC Power, Rhombus, ABB, Tellus Power, EVBOX, EVLoop, Power Electronics, and EVOCHARGE. In addition, EvGateway operates and maintains vehicle chargers for companies and municipalities including Southern California parks, beaches, and the City of Los Angeles.

This loan guarantee is the third project under the Air District’s Climate Tech Finance program. In partnership with the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank and the Northern California Financial Development Corporation, the Climate Tech Finance team led a technology qualification, social equity impact, and greenhouse gas analysis that deemed EvGateway eligible for a $2.5 million loan guarantee. This loan guarantee supported EvGateway in securing a line of credit with Farmers & Merchants Bank.

The core value of the Climate Tech Finance is to support innovative climate projects, and the Air District’s greenhouse gas analysis ensures that new technologies will reduce short- and long-term greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Tech Finance loan guarantee provides a credit enhancement that supports EvGateway’s installations of DC and AC EV chargers throughout the State of California. The chargers will be installed at hotels and commercial sites from the Bay Area to San Diego. EvGateway’s projects are estimated to reduce 7,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions per year in California.
