Shorepower Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Now Appearing on OpConnect® Network

OpConnect is proud to have another Oregon-based company as the first OEM partner for our EV Charging Network.

PORTLAND, Ore.--horepower and OpConnect have entered into an agreement to connect Shorepower's Level II electric vehicle charging stations to OpConnect's Electric Vehicle Charging Network. EV drivers charging on Shorepower's charging stations will have access to all of the features of OpConnect's network, including real-time views of networked charging stations, real-time status of their charging sessions, charging history and billing management, and in the future, reservation capability.
