IRVINE, Calif., July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Qmerit, a leader in renewable energy transformation, and electric vehicle-maker, Rivian, are partnering to create a seamless home charger installation experience for Rivian preorder holders.

Qmerit’s nationwide network of certified installers will soon begin performing Rivian Wall Charger installations in the homes of Rivian customers. This partnership aims to extend Rivian’s smooth digital journey from vehicle order to ongoing at-home charging support.

“Charging is a core part of EV ownership and we know by providing a seamless experience, it will not only help our existing customers but hopefully inspire new customers by showing them how safe and simple it is,” says Rivian’s Matt Horton, Executive Vice President for Energy and Charging Solutions. “That is why this relationship with Qmerit is so fundamental.”

Here’s how the Rivian Wall Charger installation process will work with Qmerit:

  • Customers place their preorder at Rivian.com where they can customize the vehicle for their individual needs, including charging.
  • Next, customers fill out Qmerit’s short digital questionnaire assessing their home’s readiness for installing a Rivian Wall Charger.
  • After completing the questionnaire, customers are presented with an instant price estimate from a Qmerit Certified Installer in their area.
  • Upon confirmation, customers are able to electronically sign all required documents and submit payment after the installation is done.
  • Qmerit provides post-installation servicing support as needed.

“The team at Rivian have truly done a masterful job of appealing to the sensibilities of the carbon conscious consumer, while arguably adding more fun to the innate appeal of owning and driving a multi-functional new category of EV,” said Tracy K. Price, Chairman and CEO of Qmerit.

“From personal experience, I know that Charging@Home removes the range anxiety associated with EV ownership as well as the dependency on charging in the wild. The peace of mind that comes with effectively having the equivalent of an electric fuel pump in your garage is unmatched,” added Ken Sapp, SVP of Business Development at Qmerit.
