Are you ready to Hug the Plug?

Across the country, thousands of people are making the switch to Electric and Plug-in vehicles. It's a big decision with lots of questions, most importantly: How are you going to charge? Where are you going to charge?

It's a chicken and egg scenario. People want to switch, but often can't charge at home and don't live near a charger. We want to help fix this, help people make the switch and make sure that charging infrastructure is delivered to where it's needed. So we're gathering people together to create a map of demand across the city, creating a vital source of data to help highlight demand and push investment.

If you've switched or are thinking about it, we want to hear from you! Sign up now to be added to our community map.
It's time to Hug the Plug!
