ClipperCreek introduces 30 kW charging station for trucks

ClipperCreek introduced its 30 kW CS-100-3P 80 Amp, 3-Phase EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) for use with commercial truck applications at the Alternative Clean Transportation Expo today in Washington, DC. This technology represents the highest power EV charging station available for commercial trucking applications, the company said.

We saw a need for higher power charging to help expand the fleet and allow our customers to minimize their utility cost. This innovative durable high power unit will do just that.

We determined that higher power charging could actually help with the impact on the utility bill by increasing the flexibility of our customers as to when they charge instead of having to charge at every possible moment. Now our customers can work with utilities to determine the best time to charge and they no longer forced to charge right through peak demand times.

—David Packard, President of ClipperCreek

While this three-phase unit exceeds the SAE-J1772 standard power range, it retains the SAE-J1772 communications protocol to allow customers to adjust supply current ratings to meet their specific needs. This station will help expand commercial truck fleets as opportunity charging can now take place in a fraction of the time, the company suggested.

ClipperCreek’s CS-100-3P joins ClipperCreek’s 19 kW CS-100 (80 Amps single phase) as the highest power EVSEs on the market today.
