Don’t have personal experience with ChargePoint, but this is great news for the BEV consumer in general.

ChargePoint cooperates with truck stop chains to deploy public charging across the US

Charging network ChargePoint and NATSO, a national trade association representing the truck stop and travel plaza industry, have announced significant progress in the first year of the National Highway Charging Collaborative, an initiative that plans to leverage $1 billion in public and private capital to deploy charging at more than 4,000 travel plazas and fuel stops serving highway travelers and rural communities nationwide by 2030.

In its first year, the public-private collaborative funded more than 150 DC fast charging spots in at least eight states, including California, Florida, Iowa, Missouri and Washington. The group has attracted support from many travel plaza, convenience store and truck stop brands, including Kum & Go, Donna’s Travel Plaza, Love’s Travel Stops and Trillium.

As part of an MOU announced in February 2020, the two organizations agreed that the National Highway Charging Collaborative will, by 2030:

  • Deploy charging infrastructure at 4,000 travel centers and fuel stops.
  • Provide EVSE at fueling locations across the US, with a focus on connecting rural communities.
  • Connect existing Federal Highway Administration-designated FAST Act corridors.
“The National Highway Collaborative is poised to be one of the nation’s foremost examples of how partnerships can be designed to scale vital charging infrastructure,” said Colleen Jansen, Chief Marketing Officer, ChargePoint. “The progress to date has created the foundation for the scaling of fast charging to support long-distance electric travel and enable fast charging in urban and rural communities as a complement to the buildout of Level 2 charging nationwide.”

“Together with ChargePoint, we are harnessing the nation’s vast fuel retailing network to ensure that drivers of electric vehicles have a reliable place to fuel,” said NATSO President and CEO Lisa Mullings. “In order for consumers to move to EVs, they need to be confident that they will be able to refuel as reliably as they do today. We are well suited to meet customer demand for electricity while providing the amenities and safe experience that they have come to expect as they refuel.”

“We believe that EV charging will be an important service that our customers will demand in the years ahead,” said Brian Couch, 0wner of Donna’s Travel Plaza in Tulalip, Washington. “We are happy to be working with NATSO and ChargePoint to help us begin offering these services to our customers.”

Well, that's quick money for a towing service.

ChargePoint is expensive, but reliable. Well, more than the others, dunno if it's Tesla reliable, but.

True.. but still annoying if you are traveling.. which is really the point of these style of stations.
