Electrify America tapped Engie Insight to provide utility expense, data management, and rate monitoring and optimization solutions as part of a $2 billion, 10-year investment in zero-emission vehicle infrastructure, access, and education in the United States.

Despite having an estimated 800,000 electric vehicles on the road supported by around 18,000 charging stations, the United States lags in adoption, the companies say. Based in Reston, Virginia, Electrify America is currently investing in approximately 900 charging stations nationwide by mid-2019.

In order to help Electrify America deploy a subscription-based payment option for EV charging, Engie Insight agreed to manage the processing of utility monthly invoices and contracting supply rates within deregulated markets on behalf of the Volkswagen subsidiary. Volkswagen AG previously set up Electrify America as part of its agreement after admitting to diesel emissions cheating, Reuters reported.
