KMB was retained to conduct real estate leasing services for the east coast deployment of over 250 locations covering Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Virginia.
KMB was retained to provide engineering and construction management for various fast charging deployment in 26 states across the nation.
KMB, in conjunction with EV Connect and Green Island Resources, was retained to design EV charging infrastructure for the Department of Health for the City of Patterson, NJ.
In addition to tax incentives designed to encourage EV sales, various states are also enacting measures to discourage the sale of gasoline-powered cars and light trucks. California has taken the lead to ban sales of new gasoline-powered cars and light trucks by 2035, with several other states, including Massachusetts, Washington, and New York, looking into similar measures.
In related developments, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Bill (IIJA/NEVI) includes a program that will spread out $5.4 billion across all 50 states during the next five years to help those states create a network of EV charging stations on the nation’s highways. While the transition will take time, the switch to electric vehicles is inevitable.

The NEVI program currently applies solely to Level 3 charging stations, which consist of DCFCs (Direct Current Fast Chargers). DCFCs are the fastest available chargers, which make them the ideal choice for Convenience Stores locations where the time for stopping and shopping may be limited.
A DCFC converts AC power to DC, with the charger sending power directly to the EV battery for charging. This allows for higher and faster charging rates when compared to delivering AC energy which will have to be converted to DC within the vehicle’s onboard charger before delivery to the battery.
Currently, most vehicles don’t charge faster than 30 miles/hr. The DCFC conversion is limited only by the equipment rating and the amount of power available from the utility or the primary power source.
Despite the power output of these stations, the power limit is still determined by the EV itself. For example, if the EV has a 50kW acceptance rate and is connected to a 150kW DCFC, the EV will still only charge at 50kW.
Newer EVs are accepting charge rates from 180+kW, with some EVs going up to 350kW.
