Chase Bank to Pilot Electric-Car Charging Station at Its Exton Branch
Chase Bank intends to test electric-car charging stations at 50 of its branches across the country, including the Exton one on North Pottstown Pike, writes Mark Calvey for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
With the current rise in gas prices, more Americans are considering electric cars. However, the lack of public charging stations hinders this eco-friendly switchover.
Chase Bank partnered with Los Angeles-based EVgo to bring charging stations powered by 100 percent renewable energy to its branches around the U.S.
“We’re excited to work together with EVgo to bring electric-vehicle charging to our branches and offer this important service to thousands of customers,” said Jennifer Roberts, a Chester County resident and the CEO of Chase Consumer Banking.
Chase is reviewing pricing options so that customers can have access to the pilot stations, with full public use coming in the summer of 2023. The chargers are meant to charge vehicles as much as 80 percent in about 15 to 45 minutes.
“Increasing the availability of convenient, public, fast charging gives more drivers peace of mind to switch to electric,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo.
