This week, corporate giant GE pulled the wraps of one of the largest EV charging hubs in the US. Located in Plainville, Connecticut, the so-called Solar Carport will deliver 125 MW hours via 100 kW DC power each year The Carport has been designed to incorporate three main technologies: GE EverGold Safety Switche, GE Combiner Boxes and GE EV Charging Stations.
"We see anywhere you park your electric vehicle as a great opportunity for charging infrastructure,” said GE CEO Luis Ramirez.
“Now we also lead the future of electrification for electric vehicles with supplied power from the sun. The GE EV Solar Carport provides clean energy alternatives to oil and biofuels, expands our ability to capture the sun’s energy and helps us deliver a viable EV ecosystem. This is a bright day for EV infrastructure development in Connecticut and the nation.”
This March, GE decided to advertise the advantages of electric vehicles some more and kicked off a seven US cities tour starring the most popular electric vehicles of the moment, manufactured by GM, Ford, Toyota, Navistar, Smith Electric Vehicles, Mitsubishi, Coda, Smart and Think.
