GreenAngel's Rapid Electric Vehicles wins U.S. Army, Honeywell contract to power combat vehicles

Rapid Electric Vehicles (REV), a GreenAngel Energy Corp. investee company, won a contract for its bi-directional charging technology for micro-grids. Through a contract with Honeywell, REV will participate in the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development Engineering Center (TARDEC) Micro-Grid project at Wheeler Air Base, Hawaii.

The project involves the design, building, and demonstration of a Micro-Grid with plug-in electric vehicles. It will help determine the technical readiness of Micro-Grids to accept power from various inputs while charging selected vehicles and provide output power to various applications in both alternating and direct current systems.

"This is an important milestone for REV,” says REV CEO Jay Giraud. “The U.S. Military is one of many federal partners we have been pursuing that manage the largest fleets in the world. With these vehicles in operation we can build case studies that demonstrate the viability and ROI for such game-changing technologies."
