XCharge is a provider of battery-integrated EV charging solutions (see the feature article in our latest print issue). The company’s latest project to be announced is a state-of-the-art EV charging Superhub at the Watters Creek Village mixed-use development near Dallas.
The new charging hub will feature more than 20 stalls with DC fast chargers providing charging speeds from 200 kW to 400 kW. It will also include 3 MWh of grid-tied battery storage capacity. XCharge’s energy storage system can not only level out energy consumption, saving site owners big money on utility demand charges—it’s also bidirectional, so it can return surplus energy to the grid.
XCharge’s system is designed to handle seismic weather events—a hot topic in Texas, where unexpected cold snaps have wrought grid havoc in the past.
Watters Creek Village is a shopping and entertainment destination that includes retail stores, outdoor dining restaurants, office space and residential lofts.
This will be XCharge’s second EVSE deployment in the area—the company installed charging infrastructure at mobile infrastructure consultancy MD7’s corporate headquarters last March.
“The upcoming EV charging Superhub will not only position Watters Creek as a leader in sustainable development but also establish itself as the largest high-end DC fast-charging destination in the region,” said Watters Creek Village spokesman James Roussel. “The XCharge EV Charging Superhub will be another amenity available to our community.”
