Rome, April 27th, 2021 – OpenCharge, the new integrated solution from Enel X and Enel Energia for the unlimited recharging of electric vehicles (EVs), at home or at the office, is now available. To sign up to for the offer, drivers need to have access to, or purchase, an Enel X JuiceBox, the innovative charging station available in 3.7 kW, 7.4 kW and 22 kW models, which can be installed easily and safely in your garage, private parking space or at the office. Customers who already have an existing electricity contract with Enel will be able to access the OpenCharge offer by switching products through Enel Energia, free of charge; new customers can simply sign a contract with attractive conditions and energy from 100% renewable sources. The benefits of OpenCharge also extend to public recharging, with two full tanks of energy per month from over 12,000 Enel X recharging points across Italy.
“Driving electric cars is already a reality and from today, with OpenCharge, it will be even easier and more sustainable,” said Augusto Raggi, Head of Enel X Italia. “In collaboration with Enel Energia, we have developed a tailor-made offer for users to recharge their electric vehicle at home or at work using the domestic JuiceBox, with no consumption limits. This innovative solution once again demonstrates Enel X's commitment to making electric mobility accessible to everyone, both in the private and public sectors.”
“We are pleased to have developed OpenCharge together with Enel X. At last, it will be possible to simplify electric car charging and get benefits on your utility bills,” said Nicola Lanzetta, Head of Enel's Italian Market. “Thanks to this initiative, Enel Energia customers will have a complete package with electricity supply at wholesale prices and favorable conditions, and energy produced entirely from renewable sources in full compliance with sustainability principles.”
The solutions developed by Enel X and Enel Energia were designed taking the real needs of users into account, and combine recharging at home or at the office with recharging in public places. OpenCharge 20, is ideal for those with a car battery of up to 20 kWh, offering unlimited charging via the JuiceBox at home or at the office, and up to 30 kWh at Enel X public charging points. OpenCharge 50, is designed for vehicles with batteries between 21 kWh and 50 kWh, and boasts unlimited charging with the JuiceBox at home or at the office and up to 80kWh in public places. OpenCharge 75, allows you to recharge your 51kWh to 75kWh EV, offering unlimited charging through the JuiceBox and up to 150kWh per month at Enel X public recharging points. To mark the launch, the three solutions are available at a promotional rate, which can be signed up for until 31/07/2021 and is valid until 31/12/2021.
