Project Overview

The St. Louis Vehicle Electrification Rides for Seniors (SiLVERS) project will demonstrate a fleet of five light-duty electric vehicles (EVs) and supporting infrastructure (EVSE) for use by social service agencies in a low-income community in the St. Louis area that have no or little experience with these technologies. The program will deploy five (5) dual electric vehicle charging stations between two Social Service agencies for use by fleet drivers and community members.  The vendor for these charging stations, EVBox, will deliver the charging stations to the appropriate location(s) in advance of their anticipated installation.

This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office and Forth, the prime recipient of the Federal Award is now pursuing a competitive procurement process to secure a contractor to carry out the services described in this request for proposals. All work is subject to approval by the site hosts, Forth, Ameren, and the City of St. Louis.
