Google testing Plugless Power EV wireless charging unit

21 March 2011

Google is testing a Plugless Power charging station for electric vehicles at its Mountain View, Calif. headquarters. Developed by Evatran LLC, Plugless Power is a Level 2 (7.7 kW, 240V at 32A) inductive charging system.

Google has multiple low-speed electric vehicles for short-range travel around its campus and includes plug-in vehicles in its on-campus employee car-sharing program. The company will initially use the Plugless Power station to charge a retrofitted short-range electric vehicle. Google showed interest in testing the Plugless Power technology and understanding how its features could simplify the charging process for its plug-in EV fleet vehicles.

Evatran is actively seeking other fleet trial opportunities with corporations and municipalities to experience the Plugless Power technology in the third quarter of 2011. Most EV models are eligible for Plugless Power through a retrofit process. In addition to fleet distribution, Evatran is currently working with automotive manufacturers to integrate the Plugless Power technology into mass-market EVs by 2012.
