"SPX is proud to be Chevrolet’s national partner in supporting the launch of the Chevrolet Volt, positioned to leverage our nearly 100 years of automotive industry experience to provide Volt owners with a streamlined program for installing their home charging equipment," said SPX Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher J. Kearney. "Electric vehicles are one of the most exciting breakthroughs of our time, and our involvement in this area of technological innovation and sustainability is consistent with our business focus and mission as an organization. SPX Service Solutions’ dedicated electric vehicle team has worked closely with Chevrolet to ensure the successful deployment and rollout of the revolutionary new Volt."
"Charging at home is a great benefit of driving an electric vehicle, as it’s more convenient and costs less than stopping at the corner gas station," said Tony DiSalle, Volt Marketing Director. "By offering a dedicated customer-service team and working with SPX as our national partner for home and business charging solutions, Chevrolet will make it as convenient as possible for Volt customers to charge at home.
"Having already successfully completed consumer home charger trials in support of Chevrolet’s field-testing of the Volt, we’ve demonstrated that we have the experience and infrastructure in place to coordinate and complete home charger installations from start to finish," said Tanvir Arfi, President of SPX Service Solutions. "In addition, our knowledgeable customer service team is ready to help Volt owners upgrade to a dedicated 120-volt home charging outlet or install a 240-volt charge station, and advise them on what steps they may need to take in order to qualify for reduced rates from their electric utility."
