Enel Group subsidiary eMotorWerks has introduced its residential electric vehicle charging service called the JuicePlan in the US. Through this new service, eMotorWerks aims to increase access to smart charging and accelerate EV adoption.
The service basically couples the company’s charging solutions with installation, and a platform for smart charge management and the JuicePlan claims to make home charging installation and experience user-friendly and affordable.
The monthly subscription fee starts at $19 and includes the JuiceBox home charger, home installation by certified electricians, and the JuiceNet smart charging platform.
“One of the barriers we’ve found to greater adoption is the selection and installation of an EV charging system at home,” says Valery Miftakhov, eMotorWerks CEO and founder. It is an issue that he hopes to forego by “creating a subscription option for smart charging to existing EV owners or those that are considering an electric vehicle” as well.
The combination of the JuiceNet platform, the smart charging software and the JuiceBox Pro 40, assists drivers in working for lower overall charging costs, as well as providing an option to charge with the cleanest power available while reducing the cost of electricity service, says eMotorWerks. For example, the JuicePlan allows EV drivers to control and monitor charging remotely.
JuicePlan will firstly be available to electric vehicle owners across several markets in California, New York, New Jersey, and Maryland.
