While not as sexy as the WattStation, Coulomb Technologies today unveiled a new charging station that could be found in thousands of homes across the country over the next few years. Referred to as CT500, the Level II charging station is compatible with electric vehicles using the SAE J1772 standard and is perfect for residential or light commercial use.
This is a 7.2 kW single output station with 208/240 V @ 30 A charging.
CT500 is networked and has a host of potential features, including smart card reading, energy-theft prevention, intelligent power control, integrated fault detection, wireless upgrading, power metering, and compatibility with the smart grid.
Pricing starts at $2,500, not including installation, says Coulomb spokeswoman Anne Smith, according to Green Car Advisor. If you’re in the market, the new station is available nationally through Coulomb distributors.
