Electrify America creates new business unit for its home charging products

2 min read

Electrify America is on a 10-year, $2-billion mission to build a comprehensive public DC fast charging network across the US. Last year it expanded into home charging with the launch of its Level 2 Home Charger.

Now EA has formed a new business unit called Electrify Home, which aims to leverage the company’s considerable charging expertise to deliver a line of fast and effective home charging products.

The Electrify Home online store offers a one-stop solution—EV owners can buy the Electrify America Level 2 Home Charger, arrange for installation through Qmerit, and get 24/7 customer support.

The Electrify America Level 2 Home Charger comes with a NEMA 14-50 power plug, and can also be hard-wired. It comes with a docking station that allows for wall mounting. It sports a NEMA 3R enclosure suitable for indoor or outdoor locations, and a 24.6-foot long cable. An LED color indicator displays charging status. The charger comes with a 3-year warranty and 24-hour tech support.

“Right now, about 80 percent of electric vehicle charging is done at home. With the launch of Electrify Home, we’re providing flexible and forward-thinking home charging solutions for EV drivers of today and tomorrow,” said Nina Huesgen, Senior Manager, Home and eCommerce at Electrify America. “EV drivers need more charging options to feel truly independent and confident in their decision to go electric, which is why Electrify America has expanded its focus to create a connected and smart home charging ecosystem.”
