CHARLOTTE – Riverbend Apartments, located in northwest Charlotte and managed by Brown Investment Properties, has installed two energy efficient SemaConnect electric vehicle charging stations for residents. These two new Series 6 smart EV charging stations are the newest community amenities that include accessible living options, designer clubhouse, fitness center, smart technology, and close proximity to Interstate 485 and the new Riverbend Shopping Center.

Riverbend Apartments is the second BIP apartment development to receive SemaConnect charging stations. At another property previously owned by BIP, EV drivers had asked management to install smart charging stations so they could charge overnight. When developing the new community in Charlotte, Brown Investment made SemaConnect EV charging a priority for new community amenities.

“When developing Riverbend Apartments, we wanted to make sure that our community was a welcoming home for all our new residents,” said Lance Ramsey, development manager at Brown Investment Properties. “We knew that most EV drivers charge at home, which is why we installed SemaConnect charging stations to support new residents who drive electric. Now, Riverbend residents can wake up knowing their battery is filled, without worrying about finding charging stations elsewhere in the city. We’ve already seen two of our Tesla owners charging after work! Our two new smart SemaConnect stations help us offer the convenience and luxury that our residents are looking for in Charlotte.”

“Lance Ramsey and Brown Investment Properties know the value of smart technology at luxury apartment communities in North Carolina,” said Joseph Inglisa, sales manager at SemaConnect. “The biggest barrier to buying an electric vehicle is not having a place to charge. With their new SemaConnect charging stations, Brown Investment Properties is making life more convenient for EV drivers and apartment dwellers in North Carolina.”

The two new SemaConnect smart EV charging stations at Riverbend Apartments are mounted on a dual pedestal near the community amenities. In addition to the durable aluminum casing, cable management system, and interactive LED lights, the Series 6 charging stations offer connectivity to the SemaConnect Network. Using the SemaConnect Network, station owners can manage station access, set custom pricing, and view sustainability reports. Residents at Riverbend can view live station status and manage their SemaConnect accounts using the SemaConnect mobile app.
