First gigahub site location to serve Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
The first gigahub site will be built near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with $2 million in funding from the California Energy Commission (CEC), and in collaboration with Hertz. bp pulse will lead the design, installation and management of the EV fast-charging hub.
Vehicles employed by California’s ride-hailing fleets make up 2.5 percent of the vehicle population, but consume 30 percent of all public fast charging. The California Energy Commission is proud to support projects like the Gigahub network by bp pulse, near LAX in partnership with Hertz, two transportation powerhouses who are working together to help electrify ride-hailing and rental fleets and cut pollution in communities.
