California-based Envirotech Vehicles announced Aug. 24 that the company had entered into a factory authorized representative agreement with Rogers-based solar energy equipment provider Shine Solar.
Under the agreement, Shine Solar will promote and sell Envirotech products throughout the U.S. and will purchase at least one van and one Class 4 or Class 5 truck for demonstrations.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Envirotech Vehicles,” Shine Solar CEO Nick Gorden said. “As a leading provider of solar energy equipment, we are excited to be able to expand our platform and provide our customers with a state-of-the-art electric vehicle alternative.”
Envirotech provides purpose-built zero-emission electric vehicles for the commercial and last-mile fleets, school districts, public and private transportation service companies and colleges and universities to help meet the increasing demand for heavy duty electric vehicles.
“Shine Solar is a well-known and respected provider of solar energy equipment in cities across Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee,” Envirotech CEO Phillip Oldridge said. “They have a broad and expanding service area and customer base that is actively looking for green energy solutions. With our best-in-class fleet of zero-emission purpose built electric vehicles, we are pleased to be able to offer an environmentally friendly transportation alternative to existing and potential Shine Solar customers, as well as continue to grow our market share throughout the South and Midwest.”
