Hi! We work with businesses to install new stations every day.
Our goal at ChargePoint is to make EV charging work for businesses who have parking spots, and for EV drivers who need charging. Take a look at this video about why Adobe invested in ChargePoint chargers (http://bit.ly/2kU3isi)! I thought you might also enjoy a blog post about Oyster Development Corporation and why they put in ChargePoint chargers, too! (http://bit.ly/2zfiQcF)


OK, here is the issue that limits you: you only install in collaboration with a host entity. You don’t seek out strategic locations and install independently. Especially with higher powered QC which is what we’ll need going forward. Soon, every OEM’s offering will be 60 kWh and up and there’ll be demand that will translate into revenue without your current host model. So, ChargePoint, why not branch out? You have the equipment and knowledge base to make it work. If Tesla can put up multiple units per site, you can cozy up right next to them, or across the road, whatever. As it is, you’re ceding the Non-Tesla QC market to EVgo. Do you really want to be that far behind?



We are working hard to build out DC fast corridors across the U.S. Stay tuned for updates. :)

I gotta say. We have had more luck with chargepoint stations than any of the others. We have had a swipe card for a couple years and now that we are a two EV family we seem to use their facilities more than any others. Pretty reliable network. I wish them well. Now if we could just get them involved in the Village Green Mall in Vernon BC, I sent the mall guy a contact point but never heard back from them. Excellent locations.

ChargePoint is the only card I have and seems to be thee card in my market. My only beef is I have 2 Leafs but to get a second card I'd have to pay $5 :x Sure I suppose I could just sign up for a second account for my second Leaf but for now I just share the one card between the two and try and remember which Leaf might end up needing the card.....kind of stupid IMO that I'd have to pay for a second card, but whatever and no I'd rather not use my cell phone, I prefer the little RFID card.

Thanks guys. One of us will give you a call in the next few days. We are currently in Palm Springs area with our smart ED. The Village Green mall is in Vernon BC. I did have a short email interchange with them and they seemed quite interested.

You'll find our top 3 tips for negotiating with your HOA and a free eBook on condo charging, on the ChargePoint blog: http://bit.ly/ChargePointHOA
