ClipperCreek, Inc. has introduced Share2, allowing two electric vehicle charging stations to share power from one branch circuit. Share2 is an option for the Level 2, 240V ClipperCreek HCS-40 product line. A bundle of two stations enabled with the Share2 is priced starting at $1,498.
The Share2 is an inexpensive solution for any location looking for an easy way to double the number of charge points without running additional 240V circuits.
Upgrading power so that each station has its own circuit can be cost prohibitive. Share2 allows charging station owners to install two 32A, Level 2 charging stations on one 40A circuit. The stations will offer full power if one vehicle is requesting a charge and automatically splits the power if a second vehicle requests a charge at the same time. When one of the vehicles completes charging, the other station reverts to full power for the second vehicle.
This enables customers to charge two vehicles at the same time, on one branch circuit, saving considerably on installation costs. Electric vehicles are universally loved by our customers, who quickly discover they want a second plug in vehicle. Oftentimes their service panel cannot support the power requirement for an additional vehicle. Share2 eliminates this obstacle.—Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek
A Share2-enabled HCS has ClipperCreek’s standard three-year warranty, a fully sealed, rugged NEMA 4 enclosure, 25 feet of charge cable, and a separate, low profile wall mount connector holster. It is also compatible with the ChargeGuard key-based access control and can be ordered with the “Ruggedized” HCS-40R charging stations.
