CALGARY, AB, May 5, 2022 – Sun Country Highway, a full service EV solution provider and HONK, North America’s leading provider of contactless payments for parking, announced today a partnership that streamlines the paid EV charging experience across North America. Starting immediately, parking operators and real estate owners can install Sun Country Highway EV Charging Stations and run payment processing directly through HONK while utilizing their standard parking enforcement. This eliminates the need for ongoing networking fees and additional contracts with third parties.
“Sun Country is excited to partner with HONK and make paid EV charging more efficient and streamlined,” said Kent Rathwell, Sun Country Highway, Founder. “This partnership gives parking and asset owners greater control over their EV charging initiatives by bundling hardware, installation and point-of-sale payment processing all together into a seamless go-to-market package.”
Sun Country customers gain access to HONK’s back office portal where they can easily set up and manage EV charging rates for their charging stations; while drivers simply scan a QR code on-site and pay using a digital wallet (Apple Pay, Google Pay, or PayPal) or any major credit card. Once paid, the driver can plug in and charge their car for the purchased duration.
“It’s important that we arm operators with best-in-class payment technology to better serve the growing shift towards renewable transit and mobility – this partnership allows us to do just that,” said Michael Back, HONK Founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sun Country and make paid EV charging better, safer and more streamlined for operators and consumers alike.”
