By Greentech Lead Team: Xatori,
creators of PlugShare, an electric vehicle charging network, has launched its
second product, GreenCharge.
The iOS application allows users to
view real time battery data and to share the environmental and monetary
benefits of owning an electric vehicle. GreenCharge is available for iPhone,
iPad, and iPod touch devices for $9.99 – the average cost of charging an
electric car for a week.
The GreenCharge app provides real
time charging information by syncing with a compatible electric vehicle such as
a Nissan LEAF or Chevy Volt.
The company claims that GreenCharge
is the first app to connect driving data with local energy pricing to give personalized
data about the cost of operating an electric car. EV owners can see the
environmental impact of driving in terms of carbon offset. By providing this
information, GreenCharge empowers EV owners and enthusiasts alike to better
understand and communicate the advantages of electric vehicles.
“I’ve talked to too many people
who have been confused about the benefits and operating costs of an electric
vehicle. We built GreenCharge to let EV owners understand their cars and
educate others on the true environmental and monetary benefits of driving an
electric vehicle,” said Forrest North, CEO of Xatori.
