Leap and SWTCH Energy Launch New Virtual Power Plant Solutions for Multi-Tenant EV Charging Infrastructure

Leap, the leading virtual power plant (VPP) platform, and SWTCH Energy (SWTCH), a company pioneering electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions for multi-tenant buildings across North America, today announced a partnership to deploy VPPs in New York and Massachusetts. Through Leap's automated, software-only solution, SWTCH will integrate its EV charging network into new demand response and other grid services revenue streams.

"For too long, multifamily properties have been underserved by new energy technologies such as smart EV charging and VPPs, which is why we are so thrilled to partner with SWTCH," said Jason Michaels, Chief Revenue Officer at Leap. "Together we can put our best-in-class technology solutions to work at addressing this gap in the market."

VPPs offer numerous benefits, helping to offset rising electricity costs while lowering carbon emissions and improving local grid reliability. Leveraging SWTCH's customer network, which includes multifamily and commercial buildings, the partnership will extend these benefits to a wider array of energy consumers.

"In collaboration with Leap, we're tapping into the incredible potential of multi-tenant EV chargers to serve as paid flexible resources for the grid," said Samuel Bordenave, CFO at SWTCH. "Our new Leap-powered VPP offerings advance our commitment to providing affordable charging for tenants and helping our real estate customers maximize the value of their EV infrastructure."

Leap has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years fueled by the proliferation of EVs and other distributed energy resources across the country. Earlier this year, Leap announced new platform upgrades that leverage automation to empower technology companies to grow their VPP customer revenue 3x faster. SWTCH recently announced $27.2M in Series B Funding to scale its charger deployments across North America and advance its market-leading EV charging solutions, including SWTCH Control.
