Intelligent Charging On The Go...
What are Electric Car Charging Stations?
Charging stations, as the name implies, are like gas pumps for EVs, where EV owners can charge their electric cars during long parking stretches. Charging is almost always done via a cable, hence the name “plug-in hybrid” or “plug-in EV”.
There are different “levels” of charging provided by these stations—from level 1, 2, 3, and so on—and each level can charge an EV at different rates, with levels 3 and 4 equating to “fast charging.”
While home chargers only add about four miles of driving range per hour of charging, fast chargers (technically called DC fast chargers), can provide over 100 miles of driving range in as little as 30 minutes!
Who Pays for Remote Charging Stations for Electric Cars?
While the owner of the structure or facility typically pays for the stations to be installed, the owner of the EV pays for the energy that is fed into their vehicle.
Rates vary from location to location, but typically, facilities that have “fast-charging” stations might charge a few dollars an hour, though, some facilities only provide simple wall charging, in which case, the fee may be less.
State Utilities and Authorities Get Involved
With EVs predicted to see substantial growth, industry and other stakeholders are left with the ongoing challenge of ensuring that enough charging infrastructure is in place to meet the expected demand, support a competitive marketplace, maintain energy affordability, and preserve the reliability of the electric grid.
Accordingly, EV charging stations are popping up in more and more diverse locations. If you live in metro city area, then this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you: electric car charging systems are everywhere. From malls to supermarkets, some companies are helping finance installations of new charging stations wherever there is likely to be a need.
And it’s not just the private sector that is helping facilitate the availability of charging stations. In fact Government agencies, utilities, charging network companies, automakers, and even oil companies are positioning themselves in this growing sector. All see an emerging opportunity, and no one wants to be left out of a promising market. Each player is developing a slightly different strategy that aims to answer a few questions. What are the EV charging models (location, type of charging, number of stations) needed in the short term (5-10 years) and the long term (20+ years)? How and when will EV charging become financially viable? What is each player’s competitive edge over the others in the EV charging field?
Our Mission and Vision
DESKU's "PulsePower EV Sytems" mission is to help establish the future for Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs). We believe PEV’s will play a major role in providing cleaner air, lowering transportation costs, and reducing dependence on fossil fuels. Our dependency on fossil fuels has put our environmental crisis' at the mercy of events far beyond our shores and this must change! PEVs are a giant step forward on the road to green and efficient energy independence.
Desku is based in New York City and is a EV station builder, distributor and reseller of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, or EVSEs). We offer the leading EV charging stations for residential and commercial applications. We also provide consulting services to businesses interested in adding EV Charging Stations to their location. EVSEs are our business – so let our professionals help you today.
