Roaming agreements between charging companies are key to expanding access to electric vehicle charging, as a wave of new electric vehicles are expected to hit the market in the coming years. Making it easier for drivers and businesses to make the transition to electric will help spur faster adoption of EVs nationwide and around the world.
ChargePoint and Electrify America have announced a roaming partnership that will further expand access to electric vehicle (EV) charging across the United States. The interoperability agreement will allow drivers to seamlessly charge their EVs on public chargers between both networks using their existing account credentials to start a session, without incurring any additional fees.
Beginning later this year, drivers will be able to access public chargers on either the ChargePoint or Electrify America networks without having to create new memberships, registrations or payment configurations. The plan will connect more than 30,000 Level 2 (L2) and DC fast chargers from ChargePoint and Electrify America across the U.S., adding significant public access as the number of EVs on the road significantly increases in the coming years.
