GE, REC Solar Partnering On Solar-Powered EV Charging Stations


REC Solar, a provider of home, commercial and government solar electric systems, has entered an agreement with GE Energy Industrial Solutions, a supplier of power generation and energy delivery technologies, to distribute the GE WattStation electric vehicle (EV) charger.

According to the companies, solar-powered charging stations expand the economic benefits of EV ownership while enhancing its environmental and energy-saving benefits. GE's WattStation is a Level 2 EV charger designed to help accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles by decreasing the time needed for charging by delivering a full charge in just four to eight hours – compared with standard overnight charging that can take as much as 12 to 14 hours.

As a distributor of the GE WattStation, REC Solar says it will make it easier for its commercial, government and residential customers to incorporate EV charging capabilities.
