5 Questions About EV Connect: Introducing EV Charging as a Service
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, the average EV owner will start his or her day with a full charge, do their daily driving, go home and then plug-in
overnight. They start each day with a full charge and the cycle renews itself.
But industry, government and other verticals don’t have the luxury of a simple cycle. Or they’re struggling with how to manage multiple locations across a city, county or larger geographic area. Or they need help with creating a charging network, or need an expert to manage the network they’ve already built. This is what EV Connect does.
EV Connect follows the SaaS (Software as a Service) model, with a twist. They see charging as a service. To that end EV Connect offers a range of solutions: charging stations, where they work with you to select the best unit for your location. They offer an open-source software tool to help station owners better manage multiple charging stations across a geographical area. They can step in and become the management company for an existing network of charging stations. They also offer industry-specific management solutions–hotels/hospitality, government, parking operators, etc.
They also have a “Parking Lot Manifesto”, a lovely piece of content that will add nuance to your view of parking lots.
