ClipperCreek introduced one more charging solution this month.

Meet the HCS-40 single & dual pedestal mounted charging stations.  The greatest asset of these units have to be a low cost.

Depending on the version, HCS-40 can have one or two 240V 30A outputs with 25 feet of charging cable and J1772 plug to charge up to two cars at the same time and another two from a 120V outlets added as a bonus.

“This new low cost charging system provides commercial consumers with the option of mounting 1 or 2 rugged 240V charging stations to a single pedestal, and up to two additional 120V outlets, giving customers the option to charge four vehicles from one post.”

Single Mount starts from $1,309 and Dual Mount from $2,059.

ClipperCreek’s CEO, Jason France, stated:

“By creating a low cost, dual point pedestal charging station, we have provided commercial consumers an option to double the number of parking lot stations with minimal additional cost. This is great news for our fleet customers or any company that wants to offer parking lot EV charging as an amenity.”

ClipperCreek always seems to make solid but not flashy products. I’ve never had a problem with one of their charging systems. ChargePoint systems on the hand seem less durable and less reliable in comparison.

Anything has to be better than Blink.

Yes, Blink and GE’s WattStation are junk

Clipper Creek has no flash but are super reliable.Watt Stations do seem to be off line often but damn they look good!

Why do you think they call them (On the) Blink? Thats kind of a dumb name to try to get a business to buy a serious piece of machinery, although NY State’s 50% tax credit for businesses (nothing for individuals unfortunately) explains why at least some have been installed around here. Surprisingly, the utilitarian GE DuraStations (preceding the wattstation by at least a year), are very reliable, at least the 30 amp single phase things in North America. The 3-phase 16 and 32 amp Durastations are available in Europe, so someone there will have to tell you about their experiences there since there are none of those here. They just seem rather overpriced. One thing the ChargePoint dual units have bragging rights on is to install them on a pedestal initially wired for only a 32 amp continuous load. The dual charger will give one car a full 32 amps, but will split it into 2 – 16’s if 2 cars are attached at the time, so its a good deal if you are mostly charging Leafs and Volts most of the time, and more than occassionally have more only 1 car charging which can use more than 16 amps,… Read more »

Municipalities should go for these like piranhas to meat. 😉

Sounds like a great workplace charger, 2 x J1772 connections for visitors or those that need the faster, longer range charge, and 2 x 110 outlets for those that just need a little top off for the day. Bring ’em on! Deploy EVerywhere!

The price is good but the trenching and mounting along with copper costs, or perhaps thicker aluminum wire, dwarf the costs of the units for commercial install. If the breaker box is a short distance, not too much of a problem. But if it is like 300 yards, gets expensive.

Special limited time pricing:

I like that they sell their EVSEs directly on their website. Wonder how much extra would it cost if they add a 7-segment LED digit displays for voltage, current, or at least power and energy delivered. Only Tesla seems to get it with their cars.
