Fremont City installs two Delta DC Quick Chargers towards a more sustainable future
Delta recently provided two dual-port Direct Current (DC) Quick Charging stations at the Bayside Business Park for the City of Fremont to make finding a recharger easier for local electric vehicle owners. The EV charger installation project, funded by a California Energy Commission grant is part of a larger effort to build a citywide infrastructure of public EV charging stations that can accommodate Fremont’s growing number of EV drivers. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new charging stations was joined by Delta Products Corporation, the City of Fremont, the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, and partners, Prologis and Gridscape Solutions, to celebrate Fremont’s progress towards a more sustainable future.
“The City of Fremont is doing a tremendous job of creating the public infrastructure necessary to foster a high adoption rate of electric vehicles,” said M.S. Huang, President of Delta Americas. “We’re delighted to contribute our cutting-edge EV quick charging technology to the City’s infrastructure initiative, as it perfectly aligns with our mission to offer a complete range of proven EV charging solutions for a cleaner environment.”
“Fremont is a major traffic corridor for the Bay Area with vehicles flowing in from I-880, I-680 and the Dumbarton Bridge. The EV charging stations provide Fremont’s 3,915 electric car owners, as well as commuters, with a quick and convenient method to charge their cars while working or exploring the City,” said Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison. “We’re excited to be able to offer these stations to our residents, employees and visitors.”
The new charging stations and the open payment processing kiosks have been operational since December 1, 2015. The DC Quick Chargers, supplied by Delta, are able to fully recharge an electric car battery in as little as 15 to 30 minutes. The chargers are equipped with both SAE “Combo” and CHAdeMO ports, and can achieve an industry-leading power conversion efficiency of 94 percent.
