Electrify America And ChargePoint To Simplify EV Charging In The U.S.

Electrify America and ChargePoint have announced a partnership that will make it easier for drivers to use electric vehicle charging stations from the two companies.

The “roaming partnership” between the two will allow Electrify America users to seamlessly charge their vehicles at ChargePoint locations across the United States using their existing account and vice versa, eliminating the need to have accounts for both Electrify America and ChargePoint.

This partnership will connect more than 30,000 Level 2 and DC fast chargers from the two companies across the United States for a single registration fee. Users will not be charged for using a ChargePoint location with their Electrify America account and not charged to use an Electrify America charging station if they have a ChargePoint account either.

“This roaming agreement further accelerates the seamless integration of individual EV fueling networks and brings us even closer to the day when the movement of all goods and people will be powered by electricity,” president and chief executive of ChargePoint Pasquale Romano said. “Partnerships like this make transitioning to electric drive easier than continuing to use fossil fuels. Our agreement is another example of cross-industry collaboration and underscores the importance of working together to support this transformation of mobility.”

President and chief executive of Electrify America, Giovanni Palazzo, added to this by saying that the company “installed and opened more than 60 public charging stations in a matter of months in 2018. Today, we are opening ultra-fast charging stations at an unprecedented pace, with more than 150 locations available to the public.”

Electrify America is a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group of America and was established in 2017 as part of the automaker’s diesel emissions scandal settlement.
