Fermata Energy announced the upcoming release of its second V2X bidirectional charger, the FE-20. With multiple commercial projects already successfully deployed with its FE-15 bidirectional charger, Fermata Energy is adding a second commercial charger option with the FE-20 to meet the increasing demand for V2X installations. V2X includes vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-building (V2B) projects.
The FE-20 is made exclusively for Fermata Energy by Heliox.
The FE-20 pairs with Fermata Energy’s proprietary V2X software platform, which sends fleet operators advance notice about opportunities to earn revenue. The FE-20 bidirectional charger (CHAdeMO) is a profit center that is comparable in cost to quality, commercial “traditional” chargers, which are cost centers to organizations with EV fleets.
Sample technical details of the FE-20 include:
North America, 3-Phase 5-Wire grid port
CHAdeMO and CHAdeMO V2H/L
20 kW for both charging and discharging
UL certification pending
Fermata Energy is taking pre-orders for the FE-20 from fleet owners and operators for Q1 2023 delivery.
Fermata’s FE-15 is the first bidirectional charger to receive UL certification and the only one approved for use in the US by Nissan as not impacting the Nissan LEAF battery warranty.
