Vivint Solar To Offer ChargePoint EV Chargers As Part Of "First Fully Integrated Solar Solution"
Vivint Solar, Inc. today announced a strategic agreement with ChargePoint, described as the world's largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, to offer ChargePoint Home charging solutions and custom installations directly to residential customers.
Vivint Solar said that it, "will work with ChargePoint and other strategic collaborators to provide Fully Integrated Solar, the industry's most comprehensive residential product suite featuring a solar energy system, EV charger, home battery and smart home technology for intelligent energy management."
The offering of ChargePoint Home residential chargers further expands Vivint Solar's suite of products.
Earlier this year, Vivint Solar expanded its core rooftop solar offering to include smart home energy management capabilities and home energy storage.
"Fully Integrated Solar from Vivint Solar will help enable customers to optimize both their energy production and consumption. First, the customer's Vivint Solar photovoltaic system produces clean energy, which can then be stored in a home battery storage system. Without any effort from the consumer, the battery system intelligently delivers energy to the home depending on electricity rates, and provides a backup power source for the home if the grid goes down. An integrated energy management system from Vivint Smart Home uses artificial intelligence to help customers further reduce their energy usage. For example, a smart thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by 10-15 percent. Finally, the addition of ChargePoint Home enables the customer to charge their EV at home while expanding the benefits of solar energy to their mode of transportation," Vivint Solar said
Vivint Solar will offer the ChargePoint EV solution directly to homeowners in select markets in California.
