GE’s new Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station will provide user protection by meeting industry standards such as NEC 625 and SAE J1772, will work seamlessly with large- and small-scale EV systems and will begin shipping 3Q 2010, in time for the mass-market arrival of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

Initially launched for residential, commercial, and local government applications, GE’s basic until will provide plug-in charging and optional commerce capabilities. The unit will also offer an optional Smart Grid interface by utilizing intelligent meters to interact with the local utility company.

This product will undergo extensive acceptance research with users and installers to make sure that it is easy to use, install, and maintain. Along with the charging functionality, the product will be a modular design to allow for easy upgrades as owner’s needs change and more options become available.

The initial offering will include:
