Brightfield Forges Public/Private Partnerships
Brightfield is proud to have forged public/private partnerships with Asheville City, Buncombe County and UNC Asheville that are resulting in publicly accessible Brightfield™ Charging Stations. These partnerships are possible thanks to the hard work of staff and administrators within each organization who believe in Brightfield’s Solar Driven vision and championed the cause.
The result of these collaborative initiatives is the foundation of a region-wide EV charging network—a vital part of a future viable EV market. Building off of years of work led by Land of Sky Regional Council and Advantage West, our community now has the public/private partnership templates that can be used to grow our EV capacity. Brightfield is using these templates to engage other communities in the Asheville Metro Area to support a regional EV charging network, so EV drivers can leave home confident that their charging needs will be met.
