First Factory Built Solar Charging Station

Posted in Energy Industry | Photovoltaic Cells | Solar Power

Factory Built Solar Charging Station International Green Energy Expo Korea 2010 was chosen as the venue where SunPods SP-300 was first displayed. This is the first factory built-to-order solar-powered integrated electric-vehicle charging station – ready for powering up immediately. This ready-to-use solar power platform from SunPods is called EV Plug-N-Go.

Perfect launch pad:

Deagu, South Korea, played host to the Green Energy Expo Korea 2010. This provided the backdrop for showing off to advantage the EV Plug-N-Go. The Pacific Rim (South Korea, China and Japan) is the chosen arena for marketing this power platform. Realizing the huge potential for growth, the plan is to utilize the growing interest here in transportation systems fed by green-power.

SunPods & Semi-Materials Inc alliance:

The SunPods electric vehicle charging system is the combined brain child of SunPods, San Jose, CA and of the Semi Materials, Inc. of Seongnam City, Korea. Co-founder of SunPods & Executive Vice President, Business Development, Michael Gumm is positive about the product and the success of the launch.

Power on the go from EV Plug-N-Go:

This solar-power platform has been made especially for the public agencies, institutes and companies with infrastructural utilities powered by solar power. For use of plug-in-hybrid electric vehicles, electrical industrial utility vehicles and other electric vehicles, this solar powered platform is the ideal companion to provide powering on the go.

Versatility of EV Plug-N-Go:

These SunPods SP-300 modular solar power 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.

A boon to green-powered vehicles:

Across the world, SunPods EV Plug-N-Go export kits can be shipped ready for installation. Already assembled and ready to use, these are ideal companions for a wide range of environmentally friendly renewable energy-fed solar applications.
