“We’ve enjoyed working with Brightfield TS. They have consistently provided personal attention to the success of each charging site and their level of product innovation is impressive.”
Brennan Bouma, Sustainability Coordinator, Orange County, NC
“Brightfield Transportation Solutions (BTS) has been extremely easy to work with as the Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition, a representative of the Department of Energy Clean Cities program, has sought to move the greater Charlotte region’s plug-in electric vehicle readiness planning into the implementation phase over the past couple of years. From start to finish, Stan and Matt have been respectful of the local contacts we have introduced them to and have handled the entire process related to the development of direct current fast charging stations in several communities across the region, always making sure local needs were being met first and foremost. Our region and state can be counted among the leaders in electric vehicle charging equipment available to electric vehicle drivers on the road today, and this is due in no small part to the work of BTS! I would recommend BTS to anyone looking to develop custom charging installations, public or private.”
Jason Wager, Planning Program Supervisor—Sustainability Coordinator, Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition
Brightfield Transportation Solutions (BTS) and the City of Asheville partnered to install on municipal property the state’s first privately owned, solar power-integrated Brightfield Charging Station. Asheville City’s sustainability, city manager and legal departments worked with BTS to develop a public/private partnership framework and land lease agreement model that enables the City to receive the charging stations for with no upfront cost, and allows BTS to own, operate and maintain the charging stations and control system revenues for a fixed period of time. Its a win win: the City is able to provide employees and the public access to a innovative alternative fueling technology with no upfront cost, make progress towards reaching sustainability and climate goals, and contribute to regional economic development through support of a North Carolina electric vehicle and renewable energy infrastructure company.

Brightfield has been an excellent partner to identify potential locations in our convenience store chain and install electric fueling facilities at those stores that were the best locations.

BTS is an innovative Asheville company with the know-how and integrity needed to get the job done. I support their Solar Driven Experience because it brings clean-tech economic development and quality jobs to WNC, while demonstrating our region’s commitment to renewable energy and alternative transportation.

I have had the pleasure of working with the founders and staff of Brightfield Transportation Solutions for the past six years. They are dedicated to providing the highest quality products and service in the industry. Their good work has brought them recognition from local and statewide organizations as a “Clean Cities Champion”. I am confident that they will provide future clients with reliable charging infrastructure and outstanding service.

It was a pleasure working with Stan Cross and the Brightfield Group. The two chargers that were installed on the property not only look good, but are a great addition to our “Electric Car” charging areas. We will be more than happy to assist and add more chargers as needed in the future.
Sharon Morgan, General Manger, Asheville Outlets
Stan is a visionary leader with great communication skills that also works hard and pays attention to details. The NC Clean Energy Technology Center provided Brightfield TS a grant to install solar electric charging stations across the state. It was a complex project that Brightfield handled with success

The creativity, know-how and innovative spirit of BTS’ leadership helped UNCA stretch our imagination as we came to understand the transformative power of their Solar Driven vision.

Brightfield’s team are visionary leaders with great integrity and an unsurpassed ability to execute on complex projects (e.g. developing and financing an integrated network of electric vehicle charging stations). I’ve had the fortune to be an early funder of the Brightfield team and it’s clear their commitment to their partners and customers, technology leadership, and implementation excellence drives their success.
