itselectric will provide turnkey installation, management, and maintenance services to all cities we partner with, enabling municipalities to achieve carbon reduction targets using existing power infrastructure. Deploying chargers in accordance with their city’s unique priorities.
Is itselectric fully licensed and insured to perform the electrical and construction work required to install its chargers?
Yes we are! Our sleek and simple design allows for quick and easy installation without disruptive street work. Once we have all local permits and permissions secured, as well as our agreement in place with the property owner, we can install the charger within two days.
How does the company work with electric utilities?
One of the greatest advantages of itselectric is that we use a “behind-the-meter” connection, meaning that we don’t need to work directly with electric utilities to install our chargers. Instead, we partner directly with municipalities and property owners, which makes the installation process much quicker.
However, making EV charging accessible across cities requires a truly collaborative effort and we are excited to build relationships with utilities and their stakeholders to find opportunities, offer solutions, and help unlock their overnight inventory.
What about maintenance?
We handle all maintenance. There are no maintenance obligations to cities or property owners who choose to partner with itselectric.
How does this solution compare with other EV charging providers?
itselectric’s design is specifically built for cities. All other U.S. EV charging equipment is designed for installations in parking garages, parking lots, charge lots, or highway rest stops.
The few that offer curbside charging solutions still have a large footprint. This is due to their utility main power conversions and tethered cords which are a challenge for multiple charger installations on residential streets.
Does itselectric only work as a solution for high-density cities?
No, itselectric is an efficient and cost-effective solution for any city where people park on the street. itselectric charging posts provide a simple and sleek alternative to the bulky standard EV charging stations. Furthermore, the itselectric business model incentivizes the use of private property for the public good. itselectric partners with neighborhood property owners to unlock access to untapped electricity supply from their homes while they earn passive income.
Does itselectric work for any building or just homes?
We can partner with any building that has a curb and electrical meter. This includes 1-2 family homes, schools, commercial buildings, houses of worship, apartment complexes, you name it! Our model is to take what power is already out there (in our homes, buildings and schools) and to bring it to the public. A simple idea but one that will be transformational.
For property owners
How do I sign up to install an itselectric charger in front of my property?
Welcome to the electric revolution. Please sign up for our waitlist which helps to show us the greatest demand and where to go next!
Is a permit required?
Yes, but don’t worry, we take care of that! We work with each city to ensure permits and permissions are in place for your property.
Once I sign up, what’s the process from there?
Once you sign up with us, you will be placed on our waitlist. After your city approves itselectric as an EV charging partner, we’ll send a team member to inspect your curb and electrical meter. Once approved for installation, we install the charger on your sidewalk over the course of two days. After it’s installed, the charger will be verified, then we’re ready to activate – and you start getting paid!
Do I have to pay for the charger installation or maintenance?
Nope! No need to worry, that’s on us.
Am I liable if someone is injured on the charger?
No, partner properties are not liable for accidents with our chargers. We are fully licensed and insured, and safety is a top priority for us.
Will an itselectric charging station increase the cost of my electric bill each month?
No, itselectric charging stations connect directly to the electric grid via a submeter. The itselectric team pays the submeter’s utility bill directly so you will never see an increase in cost on your bill.
How much will I get paid once the post is installed?
Good question! This depends on your city’s electrical rates and how much use your charger receives from EVs that park there to charge. But by our estimates, in densely populated areas like New York City, even with a low charger utilization of 20%, each charger can earn around $1,000 per year. As more EVs hit the road and need to charge, that amount will increase.
What if I no longer want the charger in a few years?
No problem! Get in touch with us and we can set up a remote electrical disconnect and one-day post removal.
Is the spot reserved just for me?
Since these are EV chargers accessible by street parking, they are accessible and meant for use for everyone in your community.
For EV Drivers
How do I use the itselectric charging network?
Glad you asked! When you sign up to become a member, you can charge your vehicle at any itselectric charger in any city we are available in (though we are really designed to help you charge right where you live!)
Are itselectric’s chargers compatible with all models of EVs?
Yes! We use a J1772 which is a standard Level 2 charging connector compatible with most EVs. When you sign up for itselectric, we automatically send you a cord the same day! That cord is registered to your account allowing you to park, plug, and charge. No need to take out your wallet or phone. When you’re done, put the cord back in your trunk until your next charge. If you drive a Tesla - all good! You can just use their supplied adapter with our cord.
How fast can I charge my vehicle?
Our chargers are Level 2, which charges at approximately 25 miles of battery range per hour. This makes our chargers ideal for overnight charging.
How much does it cost to charge my EV with an itselectric charger?
This depends on your city’s electrical rates and how much charging you do.
When will itselectric be available in my neighborhood?
We are working to be in as many cities as possible! Please sign up for our waitlist which helps to show us the greatest demand and where to go next!
