CHICAGO – Sept. 18, 2018 – EnV Chicago, a luxury high-rise located in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, has installed a new green amenity, SemaConnect smart electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Residents can charge their EVs at a cost of $0.12/kWh. Guests are able to charge their EVs for the same rate plus an hourly garage fee.
EnV Chicago is known for providing its residents with the best amenities. In addition to electric vehicle charging, EnV Chicago offers residents 24-hour concierge, LEED-certified building, private parking, easy access to public transportation, and a corporate advantage program with select employers. The new SemaConnect stations are installed in the EnV parking garage and add to the building’s LEED certification status.
Don MacNeil, director of Sales at SemaConnect, says, “As a leader in green cities, Chicago is the perfect place to install electric vehicle charging stations. With our smart management tools, open network, and easy-to-use sustainability reports, we’re honored that EnV Chicago chose SemaConnect as their sustainability partner.”
With the SemaConnect smart EV stations, management can tap into real-time data, usage, energy, and sustainability reports. They can create access policies using prepackaged member groups and implement pricing policies using prepackaged plans.
The two new charging stations are open, and their location can be found on PlugShare and the SemaConnect app for iOS and Android.
