GE introduces wall-mounted electric vehicle charging station

Plainville, Conn., August 3, 2011 — GE announced the availability of its electric vehicle charging solution, called GE WattStation Wall Mount.

The GE WattStation Wall Mount delivers a full-cycle charge to a 24 kWh battery in 4-8 hours, whereas plugging an EV into a standard electrical outlet would require 12-18 hours to provide the same level of charge.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations, the GE WattStation Wall Mount is NEMA 3R rated to resist rain, sleet and ice. The unit measures 24 inches tall, 16 inches wide and 6 inches deep. A flexible cord wraps around the unit to keep it organized and off the ground.

Operating on a 208-240V AC circuit, the GE WattStation Wall Mount can be installed in new or existing construction and can either be hardwired for more permanent installations or plugged into a NEMA 6-50 receptacle for simple removal.

GE offers a portfolio of end-to-end product solutions. Along with a suite of EV chargers that includes the GE DuraStation and WattStation Wall Mount, GE's circuit protection equipment and transformers touch every part of electric vehicle infrastructure development. This enables GE to lead and support wide-scale electric vehicle adoption.
