Plugless EV Charging System Closer to Production

Evatran, the manufacturer of the world’s first cordless electric vehicle charging system, announced it will receive a $1.25 million grant through Wythe County’s Joint Industrial Development Authority to support applied research that has the aim to bring the company’s Plugless Power EV charging technology to the market.

"Our company is extremely proud to receive this award, a validation of our technology and our leadership team," said Rebecca Hough, co-founder and director of sales and marketing for Evatran.

The Grant from the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization is one of three approved under a new R&D project aimed at stimulating development leading to green jobs and investment for southwest and southern Virginia.

"Virginia Tobacco Commission Members are extremely proud to make this award," said TIC Commissioner Linda DiYorio. "The business application and subsequent evaluation report from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership represent initiative for the 21st Century and beyond. The commission expects Evatran to contribute both a positive economic impact to Southwest Virginia and a strong remedy for our Nation's energy challenges."

In the inaugural year of the grant, Evatran competed among fourteen participants. The competition’s five finalists underwent in-depth technical and commercial evaluation, with Evatran becoming the winner.

The Plugless Power system is based on the 100-year old principle of inductive charging.

Evatran is the manufacturer of Plugless Power, the world's first "hands-free" charging system for electric vehicles. Utilizing a unique dual-component system based on inductive technology, Evatran's Plugless Power streamlines the process of charging electric vehicles by eliminating the nuisance of the cord and the plug,” stated the press release.
