GE’s Wattstation Electric Charging Station

Yves Behar designed a cool GE’s Fuseproject Wattstation – it's basically a smart grid ready Level 2 charging station which means a 240 volt power supply that can be rapidly charged. The modular design makes each station future proof, allowing customers to easily upgrade as more options become available. This allows customers to stay current with the latest technology, while providing the ability for commercial property owners to qualify for LEED points.On average the WattStation decreases EV charging time from 12-18 hours to as little as 4-8 hours compared to standard charging, assuming a 24 kWh battery and a full-cycle charge. Wonder How long before we start seeing these pop up all over the country?

Our future awaits. I think they should be molded to be energizer bunnies, right?

Yes, and they should crash their cymbals or play the drums once the car is done charging!
