Charging Ahead: Bartow Firm A-C-T Environmental and Infrastructure Testing New Vehicle

A-C-T Environmental & Insfrastucture of Bartow President Rob Kincart shows off the company’s new 2013 Nissan Leaf on Wednesday. The Leaf is a 100% electric car. A-C-T is leasing the Leaf for $214 a month and also installed a 240-volt rapid charging station on its property.

BARTOW | Rob Kincart must feel pretty good when he passes a gas station these days.

Kincart’s firm, Bartow-based A-C-T Environmental and Infrastructure, is getting a jolt of electric car technology. Last month, the business took delivery of an all-electric Nissan Leaf and installed a 240-volt rapid charging station on their property.

The charging station is the first of its kind in Bartow, but also notable is the fact that A-C-T appears to be a rare example of a company with a Leaf in its fleet.

“We were just voted the Green Business of the Year in Bartow, and we are in the environmental business, so we thought it appropriate to investigate the use of electric vehicles,” Kincart said. “Obviously with the price of gasoline looking at $4 per gallon, I thought it would make sense to try one.”
