The City of Raleigh, North Carolina, announced its involvement in the Apollo Program, a nationwide initiative aimed at encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles through the use of wireless charging technology.

The program, launched by local startup company Evatran, has installed six prototype wireless charging systems with participants such as Google, Duke Energy, and The Hertz Corporation.

The City of Raleigh is the first municipality nationwide to join the seven other participants in the second phase of the program, which kicks off early next year.

The City of Raleigh, along with the other Apollo partners, will use Plugless Power wireless charging systems on its own fleet of electric vehicles. These second generation systems, improved following the feedback from the first phase of the program, are production-intent and will be available to individual electric vehicle owners as soon as next April.

“We are excited to be the first municipality to participate in this program,” Mayor Nancy McFarlane said. “This is another example of how Raleigh continues to lead the nation in sustainability issues.”

With offices in the Research Triangle Park area, Evatran has been developing the wireless charging technology for high-power applications over the last three years.
