With the introduction of its new CT4000 series of charging stations, ChargePoint seeks to address two issues: the cost of installation and the growing demand for charging spots.
The CT4000’s power sharing feature allows a single circuit to power a dual-port station, so that operators can double the number of charging locations without increasing installation costs. Other features include a self-retracting, lightweight cord and a color LCD screen that allows station owners to run video content of their choice.
“The electric vehicle market is accelerating at an incredible rate and electric vehicle infrastructure needs to not only pace that growth, but stay ahead of it,” said ChargePoint CEO Pat Romano. “The CT4000 Series changes the equation by offering more charging ports at every station while dramatically cutting installation costs. The CT4000 is truly a customer-centric EV charging station. Its creation is the result of understanding the needs of both drivers and station owners alike.”
The ChargePoint network includes over 12,000 charging locations in a dozen countries. Its cloud service supports a range of hardware from other manufacturers in addition to its own models, and gives charging station owners control of billing, access control, remote driver support and usage statistics.
