Apollo Sunguard Systems was a relative unknown in the EV industry, but perhaps that will change soon as it’s the company that was just awarded a government contract to install 183 charging stations at various federal buildings throughout the US.

The contract, awarded by the Government Services Administration, is estimated to be worth $900,000, which is a substantial amount of money for Florida-based Apollo Sunguard.

Apollo Sundguard president Kevin Connelly had this to say of the contract:

“We got the greatest Christmas present going.  They let us know this is a highly visible project.”

The 183 chargers to be installed will all be ChargePoint units, according to Biz Journals.  The chargers will mainly be used by federal government employees, though it’s believed that the public will have access to the stations.

I’m going to do a writeup shortly on GE Wattstation chargers. For private installations (RFID access capable), or free charging, they have all the functionality of Chargepoints, without the expensive software license fees (GE provides for free).

My employer just installed some. The same functionality (except credit card swipes) comes at a much lower price point overall, but the ability to procure them from GE is painful. It’s like they don’t want to sell them.

The Wattstation in public charging configuration is my least favorite system. The retractable cord is a good idea but not implemented well.

The app is sparse and lacks the detailed information provided by ChargePoint. At least you can find status of wattstations on Plug Share unlike ChargePoint.

Actually I misspoke. I meant their Durastation model. I’ve never tried or seen the Wattstation in person.
