    Hey everyone, Team ChargePoint here!

    We’ve recently joined the community and we're thrilled to be here taking part in the discussions around EVs!

    If you’re not yet familiar with ChargePoint, we’re the world's largest electric vehicle charging network. You’ve probably seen our charging spots around town, but you might not know we offer charging for homes, apartment complexes and condos, too.

    We’re here to be a resource to everyone looking for advice, informed opinions, information about EV charging and all the new and exciting things happening in this space.

    Looking forward to joining the conversation and can’t wait to meet you all!

    - Team ChargePoint

    We wanted to update this thread to let you all know that we've recently introduced tap to charge for iPhone, Android, and Apple Watch!

    To use this new feature, all you need to do is hold your phone (with the ChargePoint app installed) against any ChargePoint station to start charging. See how it works in the video below.






    You can read more about the new feature on this LA Times article, or on the ChargePoint blog!

    Fun Facts:

    Tesla drivers have traveled more than 63 million miles with ChargePoint so far!

    We’ve been doing this for a long time. The first Tesla Roadster charged on ChargePoint in 2009, and Tesla drivers were creating their own adapters before Tesla distributed them.

    ChargePoint has distributed over 21,000,000 kWh of electricity to Tesla drivers so far.

    The average Tesla charging session on ChargePoint costs just $1, and 80% of Tesla charging on ChargePoint has been completely free.

    [​IMG]



    In honor of these milestones, here's more on Model 3 charging details. We can’t wait to help new Model 3 drivers log some serious miles, too!

    Charging at home can be tricky if you live in a condo and have to get approval from your HOA to charge.

    We've had hundreds of conversations with EV drivers to provide you with simple tips that will make it easy for your HOA to say “yes!” to your EV charging request.

    You'll find our top 3 tips for negotiating with your HOA and a free eBook on condo charging, on the ChargePoint blog!

    We're honored to have had the opportunity to partner with Associa to share and explore how getting around in gas cars affects emissions and local air quality.

    We also offer information on how HOA board members can help make a difference by promoting alternative transit in their community.

    Happy New Year!
    2018 brings with it new features for the ChargePoint app, and a new integration for ChargePoint Home with Amazon Echo!

    Here's a quick summary via Engadget. We've also recently introduced station photos on the ChargePoint app, and an option to be notified when a spot opens up for busy stations.

    You'll find everything you need to know about voice control through Alexa, and the new app features over on the ChargePoint Blog!

    We hope these new features make it even easier for drivers to find stations, charge up and get updates on their charging status.

    We've recently released our annual Charging Forward Report (our state of the industry report).
    Here's where you can download the full report.

    [​IMG]

    Charging Forward provides a vivid snapshot of the state of electric mobility, tracks the growth of EV charging and mass EV adoption, and paints a picture of what’s to come in electric mobility, utilities, fleets, vehicle technology and more.

    In addition to taking a look back at the year before, the Charging Forward report takes a look forward, making several predictions about what’s to come in the world of e-mobility.

    By 2020, we're estimating that more than three million public charging spots will be installed globally, supporting the mass adoption of electric vehicles around the world. As electric infrastructure grows, utilities and automakers will explore new business models that reflect the new realities and technologies associated with e-mobility.

    Our Charging Forward report is now interactive!
    [​IMG]

    Everywhere a driver parks becomes an opportunity to charge, and considering that most cars are parked more than 90% of the time, that’s a lot of charging!

    Choose a time of day on the slider at the link to see where EV drivers are charging.

    Many of you saw the news about the ChargePoint Express Plus (delivering up to 400 kW per port) on InsideEV or CleanTechnica. I'm happy to share that we have a quick update regarding DCFC!

    We haven't released very much information publicly yet, however, I'm able to share a just a few details that might help to answer questions you've all asked us here in the past! :)

    We are actively engineering all of our I-5 sites, including the necessary site and utility design work. This is a key part of getting stations installed that
    are reliable and accessible to all EV drivers.

    We expect all ChargePoint stations on I-5 to be active by October 2018!

    ChargePoint will be installing chargers in more than 70+ sites in California this year. There will be a mix of chargers at each site, for example, 1 or 2 DC Fast Chargers & 1 Level 2 AC chargers, including the ChargePoint Express 200, Express 250, Express Plus, and the CT4000. You can find details on these stations here. In
    total, we will be installing 100+ DC Fast charging stations and 70+ Level 2 chargers.

    The major funding source is CEC grants with additional funds contributed by ChargePoint and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. The stations are also part of the West Coast Electric Highway Initiative which involves participation from multiple state agencies.

    That's it for now, though as always, we'll share more with the community when we have new updates or more details available!
