Founded in 2016, SWTCH provides electric vehicle charging and energy management solutions designed specifically for high-density urban settings, primarily multifamily buildings. SWTCH has operations in both Canada and the United States and differentiates itself through its proprietary energy management platform that integrates into existing industrial utility systems to optimize energy usage within the building's energy infrastructure.
“SWTCH is building out the backbone infrastructure necessary for wider EV adoption,” said Jordan Peckham, CEO and founder of PaceZero. “The SWTCH team has a strong track record of execution; we are excited to partner with them and support SWTCH’s continued expansion and market leadership.”
