EV Charger Usage

Monday, April 1, 2013

The CDR prides itself in having one of the first electric vehicle charging stations in Kansas. After a long and careful review of different charger manufacturers, we decided on Schneider Electric. As a global specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric has been an active contributor in the electric vehicle (EV) market for more than a decade, and are active in promoting energy efficient solutions. One question they asked of us was “did we want a lock on the charger once installed.” Since we produce some of our energy, we felt the need to have the charger available to the public with no charge on a 24/7 basis. The CDR believes that bringing more chargers on line and providing information as to their whereabouts, will help grow the market. The CDR charger is listed on the DOE’s national directory as well as other sites such as ChargePoint. From time to time we see the charger being used and saw our first electric motorcycle this past weekend. The “ZERO” bike is owned by Andy Fry of Topeka. Andy is beginning a new job in Lawrence and to be assured he is always with sufficient charge, has found the CDR and will be taking advantage of it. We encourage all those with electric vehicles or are considering purchasing them,  to stop by our contact us. We want the EV user groups to grow and we will provide charging support whenever is needed. a
