EV charging startup raises $6.2M, to deploy stations in QSR parking lots

ChargeNet, a software platform start-up that integrates electric vehicle fast chargers, energy storage and solar power with a payment system, has closed a $6.2 million Series Seed financing round led by Aligned Climate Capital, according to a press release.

Additional investors in the round include the San Diego Angels, Tech Coast Angels, and the LACI Impact Fund.

ChargeNet is currently developing fast, solar powered EV charging stations strategically located in quick-serve restaurant parking lots.

The first location will debut at a South San Francisco Taco Bell later this month. These sites are powered by ChargeNet’s software, which affords customers a convenient way to get a near 100-mile charge in 15 minutes, or less, for about $10.
