3 New Community Electric Vehicle Chargers in Chicago
here have been some exciting recent developments for adventuresome EVangelists such as myself. While much of driving for most everybody is predictable commuting, sometimes one needs to get off the beaten track. Until now, for EV drivers, that often presented a challenge at best, and a complete roadblock at worst.
For most businesses, installing an electric vehicle (EV) charging station will be a unique project. As exciting as it is to provide charging solutions for residents, employees, or customers, it can be fairly challenging throughout the job.
At EVmatch, we’re on a mission to build a clean energy future together with industry-aligned partners. Through our partnerships, we’re expanding access to charging stations, service offerings, brand exposure, and workforce training opportunities. From marketing partners, electrical contractors, community-based organizations, and utilities, EVmatch is proud to work alongside innovators and established players all committed to transitioning to a clean energy and transportation system.
Last week, public officials including Texas Governor Greg Abbott blamed widespread power outages in his state on wind and solar energy, stating on Fox News that “Our wind and our solar got shut down, and they were collectively more than 10 percent of our power grid, and that thrust Texas into a situation where it was lacking power on a statewide basis. … It just shows that fossil fuel is necessary.”
EVmatch and Verde Energy Efficiency Experts are excited to announce a new partnership to deploy more EV charging stations in the Chicago area. Below, the founder of Verde, Jamie Johnson, describes his company’s added focus on EV charging to complement their work in energy efficiency.

While there’s no shortage of Netflix and Amazon Video specials celebrating the end of 2020, we have two reasons to hold on tight.
EVmatch has a large electric vehicle (EV) charging network in Colorado and a growing presence in the Great Lakes region and the Northeast. Norway leads the world in EV usage. What do all of these places have in common?
It’s hard to miss the corny holiday car commercials this time of year. As if one partner would buy two new cars – a significant purchase – for her and him as a complete surprise. The fact that car companies air these commercials year-after-year means they’re at least somewhat effective. So if you’re finding yourself persuaded to buy a car this holiday season, let it be electric. Not convinced? Here are three reasons why your next car should be an electric vehicle (EV).
At current growth rates, there will be more than 30 million electric vehicles (EVs) on U.S. roads within a decade, and that was projected before California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts called to ban gas car sales by 2035. So, the question is — where will they all charge?
In my continuing quest to show that electric cars can ferry adventurous families just as well as gas-guzzling minivans and Tahoes, I can now say from experience that this holds true during the “new normal” of the pandemic. (Important note: we traveled between August 8th and 17th, after the second wave of COVID had crested, and would have not have done so had cases still been rising.)
General Motors discontinued the Hummer in 2010 amidst the Great Recession and rising gas prices. The embodiment of American excess, the Hummer had long been a target of environmentalists, so you can imagine their surprise to see GM resurrect it 10 years later as a full battery electric vehicle (BEV) with a 350-mile range.
We’re excited to announce one of our newest partners, NeoCharge, whose Smart Splitters are making it easier and cheaper for homeowners to add EV charging.
California Governor Gavin Newsom cut through coverage of the upcoming general election and ongoing coronavirus pandemic with his Executive Order requiring 100 percent of new passenger vehicle sales in California be electric by 2035.
