About TeraWatt Infrastructure

As a company, we execute humbly and with urgency to provide solutions that delight customers and support the transition to clean, electrified transport. 

The once in a century technology transition from combustion engines to electricity for transport will require a multi-trillion dollar investment in energy and charging infrastructure over the next decade.  This transformation is rapidly accelerating, and TeraWatt will be a leader in building toward this step change in how goods and people move. 

To facilitate this transition for clients, we deliver end-to-end charging solutions, with the infrastructure to support it, at scale.  Whether for an urban municipal mobility hub, a fleet operator in a logistics center, or long haul electric trucking, we have the talent, know-how, and capital to create reliable, cost effective solutions for customers on the leading edge of zero carbon transport. 

Leveraging an expanding asset portfolio covering 18 states, we will provide the energy services, energy and charging infrastructure, site operations and optimization, and capital solutions to give customers the confidence to fully electrify their vehicles.  This transition will happen only once, and we will be a leading provider of the permanent infrastructure required for it.
