Portland, Oregon (January 28, 2016) Telefonix®, Inc., manufacturer of the PowerPost® commercial electric vehicle charging station (EVSE) product line, introduces its wall-mounted electric vehicle (EV) charging stations today at the Portland Auto Show.
Both the L1 PowerPost™ EVSE and the L2 PowerPost™ charging stations are now available as wall-mounted units. Designed for inside or outside parking situations, this new product variation offers parking facilities with limited space another option for becoming equipped for the electric vehicle revolution. The units can be mounted on a wall or on a post and can be installed individually or in side by side configurations.
In long dwell parking situations where cars are parked for 2 hours or more, low current charging is the simplest and most cost effective option. Now with more installation options, it is even easier for parking facilities to enhance their image and support customers, employees and guests who are leading the charge in sustainability and energy reduction.
“We are thrilled to introduce our wall-mounted PowerPost EVSE at the Portland Auto Show because of Portland’s leadership in growing electric vehicle infrastructure,” said Bill Williams, Business Development Manager at Telefonix Inc. “Major electric vehicle charging station installations, such as Portland International Airport’s 42 PowerPost EVSE, the largest installation at a US airport, shows the city’s commitment to green technology.”
Tax credits, such as The U.S. Department of Energy’s “Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit” that was recently extended through December 31, 2016, may be available for all PowerPost products.
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. The company has now introduced a wall-mounted version of the level 1 and level 2 PowerPost EV charging stations. 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.
