Right now, the biggest problem facing electric cars, other than battery life and charge time, is the fact that if consumers who live in apartments want one,, they cannot buy one as there would be no place to charge it. Evercharge fixes this problem by tapping into an apartment building’s power grid and creating charging stations for tenants whose car parks may not offer them.
The unit itself is small and can easily fit on a pillar in a parking garage. After it’s set up, there’s really nothing to be done other than to plug in and charge up. The cost is a combination of both a monthly rate and a usage charge that works much like an electric bill. They are currently the #1 provider for Tesla, and even boast that if you go into a Tesla dealer and tell them you live in an apartment, the dealer will point you towards Evercharge. They are currently in talks to partner with BMW and others.
