Paired Power has announced the launch of its transportable solar canopy electric vehicle (EV) charger, PairTree.
PairTree can be used with or without a grid connection and can be quickly installed to allow EV drivers to use renewable energy from the sun.
Paired Power believes this solution avoids the costly construction and infrastructure requirements that typically deter organisations from installing solar canopies.
The PairTree EV charger can provide up to 75 miles of daily range to an EV.
It also supports the integration of lithium iron phosphate batteries, which can extend an EV’s range to up to 230 miles.
“With traditional solar canopies, locations can wait as long as two years to be connected to the local utility grid, just to use their chargers. The installation of traditional EV chargers and solar canopies is a time and labor-intensive process, not to mention the disruption and delays of construction. We designed PairTree to eliminate these hassles and make the transition to solar and EV charging simple and scalable while also being modular enough to accommodate future needs.”
PairTree can be installed by just two workers in a single day, using standard hand tools and without lengthy permit approvals.
The solution is designed for a variety of applications, including EV charging access in locations that have maxed out their local grid capacity or where the property is leased and the tenant doesn’t want to invest in permanent infrastructure.
This is thanks to its ballasted steel foundation that reduces the need for costly foundation work.
The product has also been designed to require minimal maintenance as there are no moving parts. In addition, the cellular cloud connectivity allows Paired Power to make updates and run diagnostics remotely.
According to the manufacturers, PairTree can be deployed globally and can withstand a wide range of climates and environmental conditions.
