Emporia and four key partners -- namely, HelloTech, Kopperfield, OnTech and Treehouse -- have vowed to "handle all aspects of the installation, including permitting and inspection, ensuring a seamless and worry-free experience for customers," the firms said. The effort focuses specifically on Level 2 EV chargers. Pricing and timeframes for the install services were not disclosed.
Transparent pricing and education on factors impacting costs.
Guarantee on the quality and consistency of workmanship.
Dedicated support team to assist customers throughout the process.
Access to technology providing customers with the necessary information for installation.
In a prepared statement, Emporia CEO Shawn McLaughlin said: "We believe that the installation experience is an essential part of the overall customer journey. By partnering with the best installers in the industry, we aim to provide our customers with peace of mind, competitive pricing, and an excellent customer experience from start to finish."
EV Charger Market: Challenges and Opportunities
The EV charger installation services arrive at a key time. Although EV automobile sales are still growing, the market's overall growth rate has slowed dramatically in recent months. Market headwinds include:
Commercial EV charger infrastructure companies that are struggling financially.
Consumers who may need extra help or guidance with EV charger decisions and installations for their homes.
Still, the overall smart EV charger market is expected to reach $123.04 billion by 2032 -- up from $35.47 billion in 2023. That's a 27% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), according to Custom Market Insights.
