Enel X Way and Clark Public Utilities partner to launch new smart EV charging program
Vancouver, Wash. – February 15, 2022 – Clark Public Utilities and Enel X Way today announced the launch of an instant rebate program in Clark County, Wash. that enables residential electricity customers to immediately save $500 on the purchase of an Enel X Way JuiceBox Level II EV charger through the Clark Public Utilities online marketplace. JuiceBox Level II chargers charge an EV up to seven times faster than those included with new EVs.
Providing equitable access to electric vehicles is an important goal for Clark Public Utilities as part of its commitment to meeting the Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA). CETA mandates Washington State to 100%clean electricity by 2045 and includes provisions for affordability and reliability to ensure all utility customers equitably benefit from the clean energy transformation. JuiceBox residential smart EV chargers are convenient for EV customers. With more than 80% of charging done at home, availability of residential charging equipment is a critical factor to drive mainstream adoption of electric vehicles.
“We are pleased to partner with Clark Public Utilities to bring smart, affordable home EV charging to Vancouver and Clark County,” said Giovanni Bertolino, Head of Enel X Way e-Mobility North America. “We look forward to delivering this critical infrastructure to EV drivers in Clark County and expanding access to EV charging across the Pacific Northwest.”
