Electrify America provides charging stations across the United States. Electrify Canada does the same but, but you know, in Canada. Neither of these units provide home-based charging solutions, at least until now. Electrify Home, a new business unit of Electrify America, is here to do just that.
Electrify Home will let potential customers purchase one of the home chargers, arrange home charger installation, and provide ongoing support for the charger.
“Right now, about 80 percent of electric vehicle charging is done at home. With the launch of Electrify Home, we’re providing flexible and forward-thinking home charging solutions for EV drivers of today and tomorrow,” said Nina Huesgen, senior manager, Home and e-commerce at Electrify America.
Automakers who sell EVs attempt to do something like this, offering to sell you a home charger through someone like Amazon and then arranging install, but this appears to be the first time everything is offered in one place. Leveraging the Electrify America name makes sense, as it is a brand recognizable by EV owners.
Even Tesla doesn’t help you with a local installer when you purchase a charger from the Tesla store, so there is opportunity here for Electrify America to become the one-stop shop.
Electrify America is one of the fastest growing EV charging providers in the United States. Born out of VW Dieselgate, EA provides a charging experience that is as close to Tesla’s Supercharger experience that you can currently get.
Electrify America currently has approximately 800 stations in the United States, but they expect to expand that to 3,500 by the end of next year.
