Paired Power releases larger solar microgrid EV charging station

By: Kelsey Misbrener

Paired Power is announcing PairFleet — a customizable microgrid charger designed to accommodate electric fleets of various sizes that greatly speeds up the process of installing new EV chargers.

“We found that many of our customers required larger-scale charging capacity, so we scaled up our PairTree microgrid into a system that can charge larger numbers of vehicles,” said Tom McCalmont, Paired Power CEO. “Many customers are experiencing long delays for adding grid infrastructure from their utility for EV charging, and microgrids are a rapidly deployable solution to the problem.”

Designed and developed in Campbell, California, Paired Power’s expanded suite of microgrid products can address the growing problem of grid inadequacy and increase the number of EV charging ports available by combining energy from a site’s existing grid with clean solar power and battery storage. PairFleet’s innovative design decreases daily charging costs and provides supplemental backup solar power — all without having to expand current existing electrical service.

Each PairFleet installation is designed to meet the specific requirements of the site, based on available grid capacity and a client’s energy and power needs for EV charging.

With PairFleet’s app, users can get remote diagnostics and manage electric usage in real time. Most importantly, clients can freely and rapidly move into an electrified future with optimized charging capacity without cumbersome, tedious grid charging installation.
