EVSE Charging Station Installations

  • Site Host:
    • Office Building
    • Apartment Complex
    • Condo Community
    • Shopping Mall / Restaurant / Hotels

Upfront costs that are incurred to identify viable locations for an EVSE station. may include fees for consultants, site evaluations, or feasibility studies needed to assess the electrical capacity and location of utility service lines serving a given facility or site.

WattWorks can provide designs and source equipment for both Networked and Non-Networked EVSE systems without the requirements of a Cloud-based service and the attendant monthly service charges. These system designs can include Data Capture and remote control (DR) as well as user authentication and usage accounting. The networking can be wired or wireless.

Each charging network has its own EV driver payment model, the most common being monthly subscriptions, pay-as-you-go (pay per charge), and free (free to charge; no subscription fee required). Benefits of a site host paying for a charging network can include charging station visibility and availability for drivers, free service to attract customers, energy monitoring, promotion of “Green” technologies, station usage analysis, and customer support.
A site host may set pricing policies using a networked EVSE (e.g., employees consume electricity for free and visitors pay a fee).


Networked or Non-Networked

EVSE (Charging Stations) units can be networked or non-networked.

  • Networked units are connected to the Internet via a cable or wireless technology and send data to a network host’s computer server, also known as the Cloud Portal. They provide the ability to remotely access availability of EVSE in real-time.

  • Networked EVSE are typically part of a charging network, which is a group of EVSE units with access control and payment systems that are managed by a single organization. A sampling of the major cloud-based networks includes AeroVironment, Blink, ChargePoint, GE WattStation Connect, Greenlots SKY, NRG eVgo, SemaConnect, and Tesla. These typically have ongoing monthly fees that cost $500/year per EVSE Station. These costs make cloud based networking of Level 1 chargers impractical..

  • Non-networked units are not connected to the Internet. They provide basic charging functionality without advanced communications or monitoring capabilities, so the equipment is priced lower than networked EVSE.
