The Story of ShoreCharge

Transportation accounts for about one-third of all US greenhouse gas emissions. And while the US population is steadily making the switch from gas to electric-powered vehicles, EV adoption is swiftly outpacing our nation’s charging infrastructure. 

In many places, it is still more convenient—and reliable—to fill up a car’s gas tank than it is to charge a car’s battery.

Nathan Dietrich and Marcus Ernst, co-founders of ShoreCharge, have worked together since 2019 after knowing each other for two decades within the electrical engineering industry. They believe that widespread EV adoption is a necessary and vital step to curbing continued ecological harm. 

In their research, Nathan and Marcus identified a gap in service for EVs.

If e-mobility is going to become the norm, EV drivers should be able to easily recharge their batteries wherever they decide to travel.

As it stands now, Level 2 EV chargers are being installed in locations where drivers spend a large portion of their time, such as their homes, work, and shopping locations. 

However, when an EV driver goes on vacation, the nearest Level 2 or 3 charger is often many miles away, requiring a driver to waste precious vacation time charging. 

The natural solution – for the driver who doesn’t want to risk being stranded – is to bring their own Level 1 charger and plug it into an outlet at their vacation property. The short-term rental owner then loses revenue because the EV driver uses the owner’s electricity to power their vehicle.

To Nathan and Marcus, the solution that benefits both parties became clear: Provide a convenient, cost-effective way for STRs to provide their guests with powerful, user-friendly EV charging capabilities.

And the ShoreCharge Solution was born.
