REC Solar has partnered with GE Energy Industrial Solutions for the distribution of the GE WattStation electric vehicle (EV) charger, which is said to deliver a full charge in four to eight hours instead of the standard 12 to 14 hours. REC will be working to integrate the level 2 EV charger for use with commercial, government and residential customers.
“We are excited to be a distributor for the GE WattStation, known for its charging speed and beauty, to address growing demand from our large residential and commercial customer base for the integration of EV charging stations into the solar installation process,” said Lee Johnson, CEO of REC Solar. “With expectations of one million EVs entering America’s roadways by 2016, the need to establish a sustainable EV infrastructure is here today. By incorporating solar, our electrical grids won’t be overwhelmed by the influx of EV chargers. And of course, the more solar energy is used with electric vehicles, the cleaner the environment becomes.”
