John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility in North America, said:

“Siemens is growing to help meet the demand we’re seeing for electrified transportation in North Carolina and beyond and as a result, we’re really proud to bring high-skilled, well-paying jobs to the region. It’s incredibly encouraging to see transit authorities like GoRaleigh and CATS lead in making the transition to electrified fleets to not only offer more sustainable travel but provide environmental and public health benefits to their communities, and we’re ready to continue supporting North Carolina’s effort to make clean, reliable electric transportation a reality.”

Siemens partnered with GoRaleigh and Proterra to help electrify Raleigh’s transit buses. Siemens manufactured and installed three DC plug-in fast chargers and six dispensers at the GoRaleigh transit hub. Later this spring, Siemens will also provide the hub with SICHARGE UC chargers to expand the facility’s charging capabilities.

Meanwhile. in Charlotte, Siemens has manufactured and delivered four SICHARGE UC chargers and eight dispensers to support CATS’s new electric buses.
