Loveland, Colorado (Oct. 30, 2015) .-- In celebration of National Drive Electric Week 2015, Telefonix, Inc, maker of PowerPost® electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, gave away an L2 PowerPost™ charging station to one lucky Colorado employer during an event organized with Drive Electric Northern Colorado.
The winner, Thompson School District, located in Loveland, Colorado will be installing the L2 PowerPost EVSE at a brand new school, currently under construction.
One of the best ways to broaden the electric vehicle movement is for workplaces to adopt charging stations, as this is where low level charging stations are energy and cost efficient, as cars are typically parked for more than 4 hours. Both Thompson School District and the PowerPost EV charging team at Telefonix are excited to help spread awareness about workplace charging with this installation.
“It is exciting to think that EV Charging Stations that are currently viewed as a luxury will be a society-standard by the time these students graduate college,” said Bill Williams, Business Development Manager for Telefonix, EVSE Division.
National Drive Electric Week, held during September, unifies electric vehicle drivers all across the country, while bringing awareness to the latest technologies and trends in the EV world. The PowerPost EVSE team participated in events around the United States, including at the event where the EV charging station was given away, to help spread the word about renewable energy and sustainability around the nation.
The Telefonix PowerPost electric vehicle charging station product line is focused on low current solutions for commercial parking lots or garages where cars are parked for two or more hours. The L1 PowerPost EVSE led the way as the first commercial Level 1 EV charging station, and the L2 PowerPost EVSE is making an impact on the Level 2 product category as the first low current, commercial Level 2 EV charging station. All PowerPost chargers provide an economical charging solution that also features a retractable cord reel that eliminates the clutter and potential hazards of long cables as well as offering the potential for custom branding. Telefonix is delivering on electric vehicle charging innovations with a cost of ownership that creates a win-win for both the EV driver and the parking facility.
