Shorepower and OpConnect have entered into an agreement to connect Shorepower's Level II electric vehicle charging stations to OpConnect's Electric Vehicle Charging Network. EV drivers charging on Shorepower's charging stations will have access to all of the features of OpConnect's network, including real-time views of networked charging stations, real-time status of their charging sessions, charging history and billing management, and in the future, reservation capability.
"OpConnected" Shorepower stations will also be visible from the OpConnect iPhone application, allowing EV drivers to see real-time status of the station's charging ports, to find available stations and get turn-by-turn directions to an available station. This agreement does not cover Shorepower's Truck Stop Electrification products.
"We are delighted to be able to offer convenient OpConnect features to our growing network of energy vending machines. OpConnect's cutting edge technology helps solidify Shorepower's position in the EVSE market," said Alan Bates, Shorepower's VP of Marketing.
"OpConnect is proud to have another Oregon-based company as the first OEM partner for our EV Charging Network. We have been able to integrate Shorepower's stations into our network in less than 90 days and this partnership demonstrates that our open architecture enables any charging station OEM to quickly and cost-effectively join our network and provide its features to EV drivers," said Dexter Turner, OpConnect's President.
