KOKOMO — The 2.4 million-square-foot EV battery plant that’s set to be built on the city’s northeast side has received the final approval it needs to begin construction. The Kokomo Plan Commission earlier this month unanimously approved the development plan and variances needed for the project to move forward. The approval gives StarPlus Energy LLC, the joint-venture between Stellantis and Samsung SDI, the green light to begin construction on the site.
The company will also be able to offer its customers a variety of backup power solutions. These include tubular inverter batteries that are characterized by their extended lifespan and deep discharge performance. This allows for frequent and heavy usage of the backup battery without damaging its capacity. Tubular inverter batteries also have a low self-discharge rate, which significantly reduces the need for constant recharging and enhances the battery’s overall reliability.
As the EV market continues to evolve, many consumers are looking for ways to lower their operational costs while still providing safe and reliable rides. GreenPower Motor Company’s purpose-built vehicles are the ideal solution for transit agencies, shuttle operators, paratransit companies, hospitals, universities, and any other passenger transportation business that wants to increase efficiency while reducing its carbon footprint.
