Montclair-based Sitetracker said its software was recently selected by SWTCH Energy, which specializes in electric vehicle charging solutions for multitenant properties. The software will help enable SWTCH to scale and optimize thousands of EV charging station deployments in offices, multifamily buildings and retail spaces across the U.S. and Canada.
One of the fastest-growing companies in its sector, SWTCH offers multitenant property owners a tailored solution that allows them to optimize energy usage, while still providing the convenient access to EV charging many tenants now require.
SWTCH’s smart EV charging platform streamlines the charging experience for drivers while maximizing efficiency in electricity use and revenue for building owners. Because of Sitetracker’s expertise in enabling some of the world’s most successful EV charging companies, including Volta, ChargePoint and EVGo, SWTCH determined it was the best platform to help manage the complex rollout of its solution across North America.
“As we continue to scale our EV charging solution, Sitetracker’s intelligent software is a key piece to ensuring our growth is managed effectively,” Carter Li, CEO of SWTCH Energy, stated. “In addition to giving us the tools to properly deploy EV charging systems, Sitetracker is providing best practices based on its deep experience in the industry.”
With Sitetracker, SWTCH can anticipate new efficiencies in EV charging station deployments, operations and maintenance while the company scales its customer base. Sitetracker will give managers total control and visibility over each individual station as well as the company’s thousands of North American deployments, allowing for deeper and more meaningful reporting and analysis capabilities.
Electric vehicles sales increased by 67% from 2021 to 2022, and will account for almost 30% of all auto sales by 2030, according to Kelley Blue Book. The U.S. Department of Energy has started requiring apartment communities to provide EV charging infrastructure, in certain circumstances up to 20% of the parking lot. Demand for EV chargers is surging among multifamily dwellers, so companies like SWTCH are critical to builder owners. Sitetracker’s cloud-based software enables the rapid, efficient and cost-effective buildout of the charging infrastructure that the EV revolution depends upon.
