Alpheus Gets Behind Electric Vehicles
Houston-based data center operator Alpheus Communications said today that it has lined up behind NRG Energy to promote electric vehicles. According to the firm, it is transitioning its fleet of service vehicles to plug-in electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids, as they require replacement, and also consider providing incentives for employees to acquire electric vehicles for commuting purposes. Alpheus said the move is part of NRG's eVgo program, which looks to install a network of electric vehicle rapid charge stations in Houston. Alpheus is a provider of bandwidth and data center services, and operates data centers in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley.
