EnviroSpark Signs Nationwide Deal With Starwood Capital Group

Electric vehicle charging stations to be installed at 82 multi-family properties

ATLANTAOct. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Atlanta-based electric vehicle (EV) charging company EnviroSpark has partnered with private investment firm Starwood Capital Group in a multi-million-dollar deal. This deal will bring over 400 charging stations to more than 80 multi-family home properties owned by Starwood Capital across the nation.

Chargers will be delivered and installed in the next six-to-12 months, expanding EV access to over 55,000 consumers across 12 states, in the largest deal of its kind for a single owner of multi-family properties.

“We’re so excited to partner with the industry leaders in real estate at Starwood Capital Group,” EnviroSpark CEO and Co-founder Aaron Luque said. “Multi-family properties are the next step for building out EV infrastructure and making the shift to electric practical for most consumers. There’s nothing more convenient than coming home after a long day at work, plugging in, and waking up with a full tank. EnviroSpark is proud to be leading the charge in this lane.”

Multi-family properties have traditionally been underserved in favor of route enablement and fleet service. EnviroSpark sees outsized benefits by installing charging stations in multi-family properties because EV drivers can fuel up at home instead of sitting at a public location. Starwood Capital sees the partnership as a way to attract and retain residents while building an environmentally sustainable community.

As EnviroSpark’s largest multi-family partnership to-date, the deal with Starwood Capital adds to a long list of partnerships, including the installation of thousands of chargers for Tesla, Electrify America and Georgia Power. The installation of 400 chargers at Starwood Capital’s properties follows a concerted effort by EnviroSpark’s leadership to create growth in niche markets inside a booming industry.

Since its founding in 2014, EnviroSpark has been dedicated to expanding EV accessibility and increasing adoption by building chargers where people want to charge and prides itself on providing turnkey solutions that fit the specific needs of their customers.

Radial Power is managing the project for Starwood Capital.
