Jovia makes 10 electric vehicle charging stations free to public – Long Island Business News

Jovia Financial Credit Union installed 10 electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot of its newly renovated Westbury headquarters. The stations, at 1000 Corporate Drive, are available to the public free of charge.

In order to charge their electric vehicle, drivers will first have to download the free ChargePoint app.

Last month, Jovia completed a makeover of its flagship branch, which was part of a rebranding campaign. The credit union changed its name from NEFCU in September, and the redesign features a neon green color scheme, along with pod-style meeting spaces, a coffee bar, phone chargers, a bank of interactive teller machines and other features to reflect the credit union’s “relaxed and welcoming style of banking.”

Jovia recently purchased its first electric car, an eye-catching lime green vehicle that the credit union says will be used for all messenger and delivery activities.

“We’re well on our journey to be a much ‘greener’ organization, and these charging stations not only help our cause, but also enable more Long Islanders to go green,” Renu Dalessandro, Jovia’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “Given the scarcity of electric vehicle charging stations, these chargers should be well utilized by the growing number of electric cars on Long Island.”

The credit union, which has 19 branches in Nassau and Suffolk, said it will “review the feasibility of installing additional charging stations” at its other branches.
