NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 1, 2022 / Charge Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRGE) ("Charge" or the "Company"), a global business with the vision of connecting people everywhere with communications and electric vehicle ("EV") charging infrastructure, and GenZ EV Solutions, Inc. ("GenZ" ), announced today the installation of their first ultra-fast ChargeBox (CBX), powered by ADS-TEC Energy. The installation is at The Suburban Collection of Troy, Michigan ("Suburban Chrysler"), a Lithia Group Dealership.
This installation will provide The Suburban Collection with battery buffered, ultra-fast charging technology to support the growing demand for rapid EV charging solutions. The GenZ EV ChargeBox (CBX), powered by ADS-TEC, includes 140kW/h of integrated energy storage that supplies up to 320kW of energy from the existing infrastructure. For locations that have utility demand charges, the technology allows for ultra-fast charging with as little as 50kW of input power from the grid. This technology supports both the avoidance of expensive peak demand charges and the avoidance of expensive and time-consuming utility permitting and upgrades. The ChargeBox (CBX) charges one vehicle at up to 320kW, or two EVs at up to 160kW simultaneously, and supplies 100 miles charging range in less than ten minutes.
Distributed by GenZ, the ChargeBox (CBX) offers ultra-fast charging on existing, power-limited grids with minimal or no infrastructure or upgrades.
"We are excited to have Charge Enterprises as our preferred infrastructure provider for this dealer installation at The Suburban Collection. With Charge's dedicated engineering team and project management, we are confident in the delivery of exceptional service," said GenZ Solutions co-founder John Candillier "The ChargeBox (CBX) offers greater flexibility that can provide up to 100-mile range in less than ten minutes charge time and provides a sleek, compact, quiet charging solution for any commercial property."
Suburban chose the ChargeBox (CBX) because it delivers up to 320 kW charge to one EV or up to 160kW to two EV's simultaneously. This provides greater flexibility for the dealer to service and charge EV inventory with limited drain on dealer resources due to the fast-charging capabilities. In alignment with the GreenCars initiative, this installation supports dealer efforts to focus on sustainable vehicle education and reliable charging infrastructure.
"Charge is thrilled to be working on the frontlines with both GenZ and Suburban by installing technologically advanced EV charging solutions. While each has its competitive advantage, the ChargeBox (CBX) solution has exceptional integrated technology which couples well with level two charging portfolio products," said Mark LaNeve, President of Charge Enterprises. "It is Charge Enterprises' mission to work with innovative equipment providers that share the goal of supporting our dealer network and fleet operators as we enter into the next phase of this transformative EV revolution."
