We’re excited to spotlight one of our newest partners, Charli Charging, an innovative electric vehicle charging service provider offering affordable, turn-key solutions for charging station installation and operation.
Founded by Alex Hassen, Charli Charging makes it easy to bring EV charging to your property. He said, “I started Charli after I realized that superior economic, environmental, and performance benefits of EVs are not enough to make them a viable option for the average person. The issue is simple: we need significantly more EV charging infrastructure.”
“To fix this critical problem, we set out with the mission of installing EV charging stations everywhere that your car lives,” he said. “Our turn-key service model simplifies the process for any type of property to install EV charging stations.”
Charli’s standard service package includes free equipment, installation assistance, and end-to-end charging station operation and management. Stations can be made available to the public or reserved for specifically authorized groups like tenants in an apartment building. Plus, now you can find and access Charli stations on the EVmatch app.
We hear time and time again that the unknown time and costs associated with the installation process are major barriers to adding charging infrastructure, especially for apartments, condos, and businesses. Charli’s service model reduces these barriers by handling all aspects of installation project management on behalf of their client’s properties. All ongoing EV charging services – including charging station software/networking, operation, and maintenance – are bundled into a single monthly service fee so there are no surprise costs.
Charli is based in Portland, Oregon where they have already installed a number of EVmatch charging stations. EVmatch users can access Charli stations in exactly the same way you would access a typical EVmatch station, either with a reservation or by pulling up to the station when you need it and reserving on the spot. All Charli stations are enabled for “Instant Booking” – just look for the Charli-specific station pins on the EVmatch map.
Below, you can see a pair of Charli Charging station pins and the actual chargers that are live in Portland. These two stations are available for use at the 200 SW Market Building in downtown Portland (200 SW Market St – garage access required). These Enel X JuiceBox 32-amp smart stations can be accessed by creating a reservation in the EVmatch app.
Charli Charging is available in Oregon, Washington, and California, with plans to expand further. If you are interested in installing EV charging stations at your workplace, apartment, parking garage, or other commercial location, drop Charli a line at the bottom of this page and make sure you mention that EVmatch sent you. Not only will the installation, operation, and management be taken care of, but you’ll also be leveraging EVmatch so your tenants, employees, or the general public have easy access to reservable charging.
