Volta Charging

OverviewSuggest Edit

Enter the Voltaverse, a place where retailers, brands, and communities are electrifying the future. Volta is building a network of free electric vehicle charging stations in front of high-end retailers and offering brands a real chance to engage with consumers. The Voltaverse runs on the idea that technology accelerates social change and social change advances technology. In this world, brands underwrite change, retailers set the stage, and people implement social good en masse by adopting electric vehicles. And the Voltaverse is expanding. Volta Charging is the first incarnation of Volta Industries, which aims to extend the model into other forms of socially-responsible business.
