National Development Partners with EVPassport to bring EV Charging Vision to Life




Boston, MA – February 8, 2023 — EVPassport, a Los Angeles-based leading provider of EV charging hardware and software platform for forward-thinking companies, today announced an agreement with National Development, one of Greater Boston’s leading multifamily developers and property managers, to install approximately 20 charging stations throughout its apartment community portfolio.

National Development partnered with EVPassport based on the company’s ability to help deliver an innovative and reliable solution for its EV charging station goals and meeting the growing market demand for EV charging with a seamless charging experience and intelligent charging platform.

“Our mission is to deliver the best EV charging experience to our residents. EVPassport’s exceptional ease of use, technology, and reliability delivers just that,” said Jessica Buonopane, Senior VP of Residential Properties at National Development. “It is critical that we update our assets with the technology and amenities of tomorrow in a clean and decarbonized manner. National Development has chosen to partner with EVPassport to strategically and effectively achieve our ESG goals.”

“We are honored to have been chosen by National Development. Having met their standard of excellence is flattering and a terrific endorsement of our tireless commitment to innovation, quality, and customer success,” said Hooman Shahidi, President and Co-CEO of EVPassport, who is also a Boston native. “Beyond their commitment to ESG and the development/management of world-class properties, we are amazed to see how prolific National Development is in their vision.” Shahidi continues.

Why EVPassport is Different Than Other EV Charging Technologies

With numerous EV charging technologies on the market today, National Development did their due diligence to consider all options. There are several key differentiators that lead to their decision to expand with EVPassport, including:

  • ●  EVPassport’s open network and cloud software technology make it the ‘most discoverable’ and the easiest to manage. With open APIs, it’s also integration-ready with existing and future technologies.
  • ●  EVPassport has the best driver experience. The brand’s exclusive “scan and charge” QR code technology is the simplest and fastest way for EV drivers to charge. Unlike other chargers, there are no fobs, apps, or cards required. It’s also compatible with all-electric vehicle makes and models (not just Tesla, for instance).
  • ●  EVPassport’s customer service is unparalleled. One example is EVPassport’s exclusive ‘60 second heartbeat’; the company’s ability to monitor the charger’s operational health remotely every 60 seconds and respond on-demand.
