Liberty Access Technologies Announces More School Bus Charging Projects

Santa Barbara, CA – November 15, 2019: Liberty Access Technologies (LAT) reported they have shipped 5 HYDRA-RX AC Fast Charger Controllers to 4 school districts who are preparing to receive new electric school buses. Rescue Union School District received two HYDRA-RX systems with a total of 14 charging stations, Exeter Unified received one HYDRA-RX system with 10 chargers while Eureka Union and Calaveras Unified School Districts each received one HYDRA-RX system for 3 charging stations.

“These deliveries mark the real start of the campaign to provide our children with a clean and safe school transportation system.” Said Chris Outwater, President of LAT who added “The transition to electric school buses requires a coordinated effort on the part of utilities, charger makers, the bus OEMs, their dealers and school district transportation management. We’re proud to be in the vanguard of this rapidly growing national movement.”

The HYDRA-RX is a local controller specifically designed to control high output alternating current (AC) charging stations that provide over twice the charging power of standard AC chargers. The extra power is needed to charge the much larger battery packs of electric school buses, both overnight and also during the day when the buses are idle while school is in session.

“AC Fast Charging (ACFC) is ideal for the medium duty electric buses and trucks that travel less than 120 miles per day and are parked overnight in a central yard or depot” Mr. Outwater continued. “Using high output basic chargers provides quick recharging times at a fraction of the cost of DC Fast Chargers (DCFC).”

Mr. Outwater says another 5 school districts have committed to order the HYDRA-RX and is in discussions with at least twice that many, the result of significant funding for electric school buses coming from several state agencies such as the California Energy Commission (CEC) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) as well as several local air quality management districts including the South Coast AQMD and Bay Area AQMD. Approximately $70m from the state’s share of the Volkswagen Mitigation Fund has also been dedicated.

Liberty Access Technologies Launches Crowdfunding Campaign on StartEngine for Carbon-Friendly and Grid-Sensitive Electric Vehicle Charging

Santa Barbara, CA, – Liberty Access Technologies (Liberty), creators of a multi-vehicle carbon-friendly charging platform for fleets, apartments, and commercial locations, today announce their Title III Regulation Crowdfunding Campaign is live on the StartEngine platform. Regulation Crowdfunding allows everyone, regardless of their net worth or income level, to invest in securities issued by startup companies. You can invest in creating better multi-vehicle charging solution here.

Liberty is a pioneer in multi-vehicle and fleet charging and has multiple clients in the utility, government and private sectors such as San Diego Gas and Electric, Bristol Meyers Squibb and Los Angeles County. Liberty holds several patents and is a leader in integrating renewable energy with electric vehicle charging. Liberty provides the charging infrastructure management tools required to successfully integrate renewable energy systems with the clean transportation methods needed to meet climate goals.

Liberty’s current focus is on electric transportation for medium- to heavy-duty vehicles, such as school buses, helps to address air pollution. While electric buses are a viable option, transitioning to electric transportation requires careful planning. With a unique operating schedule, school buses have an opportunity to take advantage of distributed renewable energy, such as wind and solar, to charge during the day.

“We believe that Liberty’s vision to enable smart and carbon-friendly charging will appeal to investors who see evidence of climate change everywhere” according to Chris Outwater, Liberty’s President and Founder. “We think that our proprietary technology and growing customer base of utilities, municipalities and Fortune 500 companies coupled with the rapid adoption of electric vehicles bodes well for future growth. We need capital to scale our growth to match the exploding demand for charging infrastructure.”

Liberty has also recently announced it is now offering electric vehicle charging systems along with the convenience and security offered by the world-class HID global proximity access card systems. By incorporating the highly popular HID card/reader system into EV charging, Liberty allows employees and tenants to use their existing building access proximity cards and fobs to also securely access EV charging on the Liberty Hydra™ system.
