Many of you saw the news about the ChargePoint Express Plus (delivering up to 400 kW per port) on InsideEV or CleanTechnica. https://insideevs.com/chargepoint-expre ... -charging/https://cleantechnica.com/2017/01/18/un ... us-family/
I'm happy to share that we have a quick update regarding DCFC!
We haven't released very much information publicly yet, however, I'm able to share a just a few details that might help to answer questions you've all asked us here in the past!
We are actively engineering all of our I-5 sites, including the necessary site and utility design work. This is a key part of getting stations installed that are reliable and accessible to all EV drivers.
We expect all ChargePoint stations on I-5 to be active by October 2018!
ChargePoint will be installing chargers in more than 70+ sites in California this year. There will be a mix of chargers at each site, for example, 1 or 2 DC Fast Chargers & 1 Level 2 AC chargers, including the ChargePoint Express 200, Express 250, Express Plus, and the CT4000. You can find details on these stations here (http://bit.ly/2vVa8lL
). In total, we will be installing 100+ DC Fast charging stations and 70+ Level 2 chargers.
The major funding source is CEC grants with additional funds contributed by ChargePoint and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. The stations are also part of the West Coast Electric Highway Initiative (http://bit.ly/2HQ4p4e
) which involves participation from multiple state agencies.
That's it for now, though as always, we'll share more with the community when we have new updates or more details available!
