Greenlots to Install Four High-Power DC Units with CEC Support
San Francisco-based Greenlots is to install four open standards-based DC fast chargers at the San Francisco International Airport as part of a two-year pilot program supported by the California Energy Commission via the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
They will be the first such units at the airport.
Greenlots will handle the network management platform, procurement, maintenance and related support services for the new equipment, to be located at the SFO cell phone lot (F&F, June 16).
SFO already has the largest number of plug-in vehicle spaces of any domestic airport, “and this next wave of open standards-based EV charger installations supports SFO’s larger Clean Vehicle Policy vision and goal to future proof new infrastructure investments,” Greenlots says.
Greenlots promotes its “Sky” EV-charging platform as “a robust network management solution that utilizes Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), the largest open standard for charger-to-network communications.
“Sky,” the company says, “obsoletes the subscription-based model by providing drivers with flexible payment solutions including dynamic queuing and pay-by-phone.” Host can mix and match charging station types, while setting pricing to best suit their needs: by kilowatt-hour, session, or length of time charging.
Greenlots is still selecting vendors for the chargers at SFO, says infrastructure solutions manager Rachel Moses.
