Social One of the biggest obstacles to widespread EV adoption is the lack of charging locations.

Economic By offering EV charging, companies can provide employees with the equivalent of a 5% raise through gas and time saved through the use of “High-Occupancy Vehicle” lanes in USA.

ChargePoint has built the largest and most open EV charging network in the world with over 16,500 available charging locations. It provides a reliable, accessible, and easy-to-use EV charging network that all EVs can connect to, regardless of hardware. If charging stations are not yet available in a neighborhood, ChargePoint can set up an EV charger based on a single request. The advanced network system lets drivers see station availability in real-time with turn-by-turn directions. The information can be accessed through a mobile app and the car’s 3G network. Why a Sustainia100 solution? ChargePoint provides drivers with the ability to plug in regardless of where they live, work, shop, and play. Statistics show that a driver plugs into a ChargePoint station every nine seconds.
