Smart EV Charging with Wallbox
CED Greentech partners with some of the top solar manufacturers across the globe to provide our customers with the latest technology, high-quality products, and access to the most innovative professionals in the solar industry. EV charging stations began to make their way into the American solar market in 2013 following the surge in electric car production. This area of the solar industry has since grown immensely. As we know, electric vehicles can be more cost-effective and less harmful to the environment, as they help lower smog and greenhouse gas emissions. In 2019, the US reportedly imported 3% of the petroleum consumed, with transportation accounting for about 30% of total US energy needs, according to the US Department of Energy. The increasing popularity of electric vehicles helps combat the amount of petroleum the US imports, emphasizing the need for EV charging.
In 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an executive order that will drastically phase out gasoline-powered cars in an effort to reduce the demand for fossil fuels in the state. Governor Newsom’s executive order was instituted to move the state away from its reliance on “climate change-causing fossil fuels” and create job opportunities for economic growth, according to a press release from the Office of Governor Gavin Newsom. The order will require all new passenger vehicles to be zero-emission by 2035. What this means for us is that the EV market will continue to flourish over the next few years, increasing the demand for EV charging stations. One of the industry leaders in EV charging is Wallbox, a global company dedicated to creating smart, cutting-edge EV charging solutions. One of their latest products is the smart Pulsar Plus EV charger.
