Sunrun Inc. RUN recently announced a partnership with Enel X Way for smart Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for its newly launched Level 2 EV charger amid the rising demand for EVs worldwide.
The alliance between the two companies is likely to ease EV charging issues for homeowners in the quickest, most sustainable and cost-effective way.
Significance of Sunrun’s Level 2 EV Charger
In August 2022, Sunrun launched the Level 2 EV charger in the United States to capitalize on the growing demand for EV chargers as homeowners hunt for easy access to charge their EVs.
Hence, it is imperative to mention that Sunrun's new 40-ampere Level 2 EV charger is a convenient solution that can charge an EV overnight. It is compatible with all EV models. The charger also boasts smart features, allowing customers to configure charger settings and control charging.
Considering the aforementioned features, one may safely conclude that Sunrun may witness the increased demand for its newly launched product in the EV charging segment as homeowners increasingly transition to EVs due to their cost-effective, clean and reliable features.
Also, the recently announced partnership with Enel X Way will boost the growth trajectory of Sunrun in the EV charging realm.
In the cleaner and greener environment endeavor, transportation plays a critical role, thus boosting EV adoption among consumers. The demand for EVs and charging stations and chargers is likely to increase manifold.
Per BloombergNEF's 2022 EV Charging Infrastructure Outlook report, the United States is projected to witness the demand for 21.7 million private chargers by 2030.
