Orange Charger Unveils Cutting-Edge EV Charging Solutions for Multifamily Homes

Orange Charger, a trailblazer in EV charging solutions, announced the launch of its latest EV chargers and software platform designed specifically for multifamily properties. Founded by former Tesla executives, Orange Charger is committed to providing the 43 million Americans living in multifamily residential buildings with affordable and reliable EV charging infrastructure.

With the National Renewable Energy Laboratory saying that 80% of EV owners charge their vehicles overnight at home, Orange Charger is poised to meet this growing demand. By 2040, 92 million EVs are expected to be on the road in the U.S. — 20 times more than today. Orange Charger’s innovative solutions ensure that multifamily properties can support this surge, offering residents the convenience and reliability they need. Multifamily properties are a vastly under-served segment of the nationwide EV charging infrastructure system. Commercial EV charger installation is another important segment.

Orange Charger has introduced a game-changing solution for EV charging in multifamily properties, offering unparalleled affordability and efficiency. With Level 2 outlets priced at just $750 each, property owners can now install four Orange chargers for the cost of one standard charger, without the need to expand their electricity panel capacity. Orange offers Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. It also offers fast EV chargers, with its EVSE, available in three options: 40 amp, 60 amp, and 80 amp. Level 2 charging is frequently used by multifamily property owners.

Unlike other EV chargers that come with ongoing service fees, Orange only charges residents a usage-based per kWh fee when they use the charger. This innovative model not only makes EV charging more accessible for residents but also eliminates the financial burden of high initial investments and continuous service fees for property owners.

Orange Charger announced a groundbreaking deployment of 2,000 units across the nation, setting a new standard for scalable and efficient EV charging infrastructure in multifamily properties. With a strong focus on innovation and user experience, Orange Charger’s latest units feature right-sized charging capabilities that optimize energy use at a lower amperage. This allows property owners to effectively double or quadruple the number of chargers without incurring additional costs.

The cutting-edge chargers are equipped with OrangeNet, a state-of-the-art mesh technology enabling seamless communication between units, eliminating the need for complex networking setups. Additionally, Bluetooth connectivity ensures that drivers can initiate or end charging sessions effortlessly, even in the absence of cellular or WiFi signals.

This powerful combination of advanced technology and user-centric design ensures an uninterrupted, accessible, and reliable EV charging experience, perfectly meeting the surging demand from residents of multifamily properties.

Orange’s groundbreaking app is designed to make EV charging more seamless and efficient for drivers and property owners alike. By simply downloading the Orange app, drivers can now scan the QR code on chargers, enter their credit card information, and start charging with ease.

OrangeOS, the backbone of this innovative solution, tracks and manages charger use, ensuring that property owners are reimbursed for energy costs. Additionally, it offers property owners the ability to control charger access and manage chargers across multiple properties from a single platform.

Orange’s commitment to increasing its EV charging network has caught the eye of top-tier investors. In a $6.5 million oversubscribed funding round led by Munich Re Ventures and Climactic, with significant participation from Baukunst, Lincoln Property Company, Crow Holdings, and Space Cadet Ventures, Orange has now raised a total of $8.8 million.
