The initiative will allow EV drivers and site hosts to get paid for referring eligible site hosts for Electric Era Technologies’ PowerNode EV fast charging stations along major highway corridors throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. Eligible site hosts receive additional monthly payments for use of their parking spots.

“We are seeing EV demand and sales surge, and we’re working to reduce one of the primary barriers to EV adoption, access to reliable EV charging station locations for drivers. Our referral program is powering a grassroots movement to build our network of tens of thousands of EV fast charging stations across America,” said Quincy Lee, founder and CEO of Electric Era.

The referral program offers EV advocates and small business owners up to US$1,500 each for a referral which leads to a successful installation. Referral partners should first fill out the referral program form on Electric Era’s website, then follow the directions.

PowerNode provides an end-to-end commercial service that delivers EV refill on an accelerated timeline without costly grid updates and high utility bills. The charging stations are battery-backed and leverage a proprietary, vertically integrated software system for intelligent energy management and integrated reliability features. PowerNode can even serve as a backup power supply to certain retail sites in the event of a power outage.
