Emporia, a provider of energy management solutions, has launched a new program aimed at helping customers with the installation of Level 2 EV chargers at home.
Vehicle owners are often supplied with Level 1 chargers from automobile manufacturers at the time of purchase to use at home with 120v standard outlets. A level 1 charger only adds three to four miles of range per hour of charging.
Upgrading to a Level 2 EV charger is a good and practical investment. A Level 2 charger is like having your own gas pump in your garage; it is a smart appliance that charges your vehicle up to 16 times faster than a Level 1 charger. An added convenience: not only is a Level 2 car charger ready when you need it to be, you can save on electricity by charging during lower rate times.
Many homes across the country were not built with the loads in mind for a Level 2 charger. To make sure a home’s limitations are assessed in advance of a vehicle purchase typically involves extensive research, contacting multiple companies, collecting bids, and ensuring the quality and trustworthiness of the selected installer. Emporia recognized the need to simplify this process and ensure a smooth installation experience.
“We believe that the installation experience is an essential part of the overall customer journey,” said Shawn McLaughlin, CEO, Emporia. “By partnering with the best installers in the industry, we aim to provide our customers with peace of mind, competitive pricing, and an excellent customer experience from start to finish.”
The six guiding principles of this new launch include ease and convenience of the installation process; fast installation times to minimize disruptions; transparent pricing and education on factors impacting costs; guarantee on the quality and consistency of workmanship; dedicated support team to assist customers throughout the process; and access to technology providing customers with the necessary information for installation.
As part of the new program, Emporia has partnered with trusted installers across the country who have been selected to provide customers with the highest quality workmanship, transparent pricing, and fast installation times. Emporia and its partners handle all aspects of the installation, including permitting and inspection, ensuring a seamless and worry-free experience for customers. They include HelloTech, OnTech, Kopperfield, and Treehouse.
