SAN FRANCISCO – EverCharge is the first electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) manufacturer to receive California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) California Type Evaluation Program (CTEP) certification. EverCharge, the leading smart electric vehicle (EV) charging provider, is currently the only EVSE manufacturer to receive CDFA certification.
These new CDFA standards, which mirror those on gasoline pumps, ensure accuracy and transparency at every EV charging station in the state. This means that every kilowatt-hour is accounted for in the billing process and that the cost to the consumer is displayed accurately on the station. All new charging stations installed that accept payment in California require this CTEP certification as of January 1st 2021.
“EverCharge has consistently been at the forefront of tackling some of the EVSE industry’s most difficult problems,” said Jason Appelbaum, CEO of EverCharge “This certification means that every EverCharge station tracks the power used with complete accuracy, so our customers have full transparency.”
EverCharge pioneered the load management technology known as SmartPower which drastically lowers installation costs and significantly expands the charging capabilities at any site. This technology allows most preexisting structures the ability to add EV stations while avoiding the high infrastructure upgrade costs and allowing more EV owners and fleet operators easy access to charging where it once was difficult.
“First and foremost EverCharge is a customer-focused business and we feel accuracy in billing is key to the long-term success of not only the company but the EV industry as a whole,” added Appelbaum.
