Verdek Green Technologies announced the completion of the installation of 4 DC Ultra-Fast DC chargers at Tops Friendly Market in Lagrangeville NY. The site is strategically located right off the Taconic Parkway at Highway 55. Drivers will be able to shop at Tops or walk 2 minutes to Downtown Lagrangeville. This is the first of 200 NYPA’s (New York Power Authority) installations that will allow EV drivers to move with confidence around New York State.
The official ribbon-cutting ceremony of the first NY Evolve site took place on September 22 with the presence of Kathy Hochul, New York’s Lieutenant Governor who drove for the occasion a Chevy Bolt and Gil Quinones, NYPA President/CEO. They both underlined the importance of Evolve New York initiative to create a statewide network of 200 charging sites conveniently located to facilitate the adoption of EVs and New York’s commitment to a decarbonized future.
The ABB Terra HP are the most advanced ultra-fast DC chargers. They are dual chargers with the CCS and CHAdeMO connectors that can charge any EV, including Teslas using the CHAdeMO adapter.
The Terra HP has ultra-high current charging capability and can charge both 400 V and 800 V cars at full power. With 375 A output, a single power cabinet can charge a 400 V car at full 150 kW continuously. With Dynamic DC power sharing technology, a two-power cabinet Dynamic DC charger configuration can charge two EVs simultaneously, distributed between two charge posts, with up to 350 kW and 500 A available, while optimizing the available grid connection. The Lagrangeville installation offers the Dynamic Charging feature the allows charging the new generation of EVs (Audi e-Tron and Porsche Taycan) at 800 V and in the case of the Porsche Taycan the ABB Terra HP will charger up to 270KW which is the max power that the Porsche can take.
The ABB Terra HP chargers offer a fueling experience close to the one of a gas-powered vehicle.
NYPA has a promotional rate of $0.01/KWH through te end of 2020. EV drivers can use GreenLots RFID cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and any credit cards.
