GE Energy has announced a strategic agreement with PayPal to launch a system that will allow drivers to easily pay for EV charging. The new solution features a mobile app called WattStation Connect, which EV drivers can use to locate the nearest WattStation charger. Users scan the quick response (QR) code on the charger, then pay for the charge via PayPal.

“Our full line of EV charging solutions is designed with the end user top of mind,” said GE’s Michael Mahan. “This collaborative agreement with PayPal enables us to offer EV drivers a convenient way to charge their vehicles, which is essential to nurturing the mass adoption of EVs in the future.”

“Simplicity and convenience are key to mass adoption of any new technology, something we know well at PayPal,” said PayPal VP Scott Dunlap. “Together with GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business, we’ve made recharging your electric vehicle easier than filling a gas tank.”
