EV Charging Stations

New 24-Amp EVSE From ClipperCreek

The electric vehicle (EV) charging station provider ClipperCreek has unveiled a new 24-amp Level-2 EV charging station (EVSE) offering, according to a recent press release. The HCS-30, as it’s known, is capable of recharging most EVs in around 4 hours — and is priced fairly reasonably, at $565.

The new offering is intended for use in the residential and workplace markets, and is housed in a “rugged” enclosure making the unit suitable for outdoor installation. It’s probably worth noting that EVSE will include a 3-year warranty.

Personally, I’d recommend getting a more powerful EVSE than this. Even if this works well enough for current EVs, future EVs will have larger batteries and benefit from faster charging. ClipperCreek, the leading EVSE provider on the market, offers higher-end EVSEs with 32-amp, 40-amp, and 48-amp charging capability as well, but it presumably saw a hole in the market and enough demand to provide this new 24-amp EVSE.

“As the popularity of electric vehicles increases, the demand for Level 2 charging stations for home use is growing. EV owners want faster charging, but don’t necessarily want to upgrade their electrical service panel. This 24 Amp model allows more people to use their existing infrastructure, making the installation much more affordable,” stated Jason France, the President and Founder of ClipperCreek. “ClipperCreek is proud to offer another solution that provides value to our customers. Level 2 charging at home does not have to be a luxury. You can own and install the most durable, powerful, popular, and reliable station on the market at an affordable price.”

“The HCS-30 provides the maximum charging power available through a standard 30 amp circuit. With 24 amps available to the vehicle, the HCS-30 can deliver approximately 20 miles of range per hour of charge for vehicles capable of accepting this level of power for charging,” commented ClipperCreek Sales Manager, Will Barrett. “We expect to sell the majority of these stations for residential use, but the HCS-30’s rugged design and ample 25 foot charging cable make it an excellent solution for workplace and commercial charging as well. We have a rugged pedestal mount available for all HCS models, which makes it perfect for the parking lot. There are many companies who want to offer Level 2 charging for their employees or customers, but don’t want to make a large infrastructure and hardware investment. The HCS-30 is an excellent solution for those companies.”

A couple of final notes: these charging stations are made in the US; they are safety listed by ETL; no mounting kit is required, and neither is any assembly.

Those interested can find out more on the company’s website, or via the company’s phone line at 877-694-4194.
