The future?
It’s electric!

Cities have established net zero goals, which will largely be achieved by electrifying transportation. Many automakers will offer only electric models by 2025 and states such as California and New York are planning to phase out newly manufactured, gas-powered vehicles by as early as 2035.

Despite this all-electric future, EV charging is not easy for drivers who park on the street.

OUR SOLUTION

Our mission is to bring curbside EV charging to cities across the U.S. and advance the adoption of electric vehicles.

Increased access to affordable public charging not only encourages the adoption of EVs, but leads to cleaner air and healthier communities.

Did you know?

Industry and government reports recommend a minimum of 1 public charger for every 10 vehicles. In some areas of the European Union, it’s 1 charger for every 4 vehicles. We are far behind these recommendations in all major U.S. cities.

Electrifying transportation has a number of environmental and health benefits, in addition to cost savings. AAA estimates that EV owners save around $1,000 in annual fuel costs and an additional $950 in annual maintenance costs.
