Atom Power has launched PURPL, an EV charging solution that charges vehicles directly from the circuit breaker and incorporates energy-management technology to keep electricity costs low. These capabilities provide utilities, cities, and property and fleet owners with a dual solution to increase access to EV charging and upgrade electrical infrastructure needed to meet transportation electrification goals. When multiple EV chargers are used for fleets or at multifamily buildings, it increases electricity demand. If the demand exceeds the historic “peak demand”, electricity costs increase dramatically. Atom Power’s energy-management system can sense demand changes within seconds versus 15-minute gaps for traditional charging solutions. Additionally, because PURPL charges EVs directly from the breaker, the charging station itself does not contain expensive electronics; it’s a metal tube or wall box with a charge plug and cable. If a charging pedestal becomes damaged, the cost to replace it is $400 to $500.
