At Amply Power, you become a driver of the electric vehicle revolution. We are building an EV charging as a service business for fleets, accelerating and simplifying the electrification of buses, trucks, cars, and autonomous vehicles.

AMPLY builds fully automated charging systems, based on our IoT real time control platform, optimized for lowest electricity cost, while delivering a per-electric-mile-driven EV charging service to our fleet customers.

AMPLY removes the risk for a Fleet Operator on choosing charging stations. We purchase and operate both the charging stations and are the account holder of the utility meter. Amply supports all major charging stations on the market, both DC fast chargers and AC level 2 chargers.

AMPLY removes the risk of time-of-use and demand-charge driven pricing variance, to provide a known, consistent cost for electric fuel-as-a-service, by using our breadth of knowledge, access to electricity markets, and real-time energy-flow management technology that keeps your fleet charged at the best cost.
