The charging station was exhibited at the recent 2010 International Green Energy Expo in Korea in order to raise public and corporate awareness of electric vehicles. The EV Plug-N-Go has been specifically designed to cater to public agencies, institutes and companies with infrastructural utilities that use solar power.
The EV Plug-N-Go was also presented at the Clean Tech Open in San Jose in July. Michael Gumm, Executive Vice President & Co-Founder of Sun Pods Inc. said then, “Our unique business model is an excellent example of creating change using market available products by re-thinking traditional practices.”
According to SP-300 specs, the solar-powered platforms are “ideal for both on-grid and off-grid installations. They are capable of compensating carbon-based grid power as well as optimal power storage in utility grid and distribute the power as needed to the EVs. Called as smart-grid capable and smart-grid enabled, the SP-300 allows power input and output from both grid-connected power sources and solar power sources as efficiently at peak demand.”
The EV Plug-N-Go was developed by SunPods in San Jose, California and Semi Materials of Seongnam City, Korea. SunPods are ready to interconnect and power up on delivery, requiring only an electrician to make the connections. http://www.sunpods.com/pdf/SP-300.pdf
