Vivint Solar announced a strategic agreement with ChargePoint, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging network, to offer ChargePoint Home charging solutions and custom installations directly to residential customers.
Vivint Solar will work with ChargePoint and other strategic collaborators to provide Fully Integrated Solar, a residential product suite featuring a solar energy system, EV charger, home battery and smart home technology for intelligent energy management.
“We’re proud to work with ChargePoint and our other partners to assemble this impressive suite of sustainable energy solutions that we refer to as Fully Integrated Solar,” said David Bywater, CEO of Vivint Solar, in a statement.
Compatible with any EV, ChargePoint Home brings innovation to the home garage, offering the smartest, smallest and most advanced home charging solution for EV drivers.
The first and only home charger with ENERGY STAR certification, ChargePoint Home charges EVs up to six times faster than a standard 110V outlet, delivering up to 25 miles of Range Per Hour and using 40 percent less energy than a standard EV charger when not charging, the company said.
ChargePoint Home features a compact, slim design and is easy to manage with an app that enables drivers to schedule charging, start charging remotely and track energy usage and all charging in one place.
Colleen Jansen, chief marketing officer, ChargePoint, added, “Along with unprecedented EV adoption, we’re seeing growing interest in solar among drivers, so we’re excited to partner with Vivint Solar to offer a complete solution that not only enables people to choose to drive electric, but also charge up conveniently at home with solar energy.”
Earlier this year, Vivint Solar expanded its core rooftop solar offering to include smart home energy management capabilities and home energy storage. With today’s addition of ChargePoint Home residential chargers, Vivint Solar is now consumers’ simplest way to find, install and service the most comprehensive suite of renewable energy technologies for the home, the company said.
Vivint Solar will offer the ChargePoint EV solution directly to homeowners in select markets in California. Customers will be able to buy the complete home solar solution or customize a package based on their needs through Vivint Solar’s personal sales representatives.
