OpConnect Charges Up US Navy

OpConnect, a Portland-based manufacturer of charging stations, has announced that it's sold 5 additional chargers to the US Navy for use at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington D.C.

These chargers are rather unique in that each unit can simultaneously charge up to four plug-in vehicles at a time.

OpConnect seems to be the supplier of choice for the US military and there's an obvious reason for this: OpConnect is owned by a US military veteran and employs several veterans.

10 similar charging stations have been provided by OpConnect to US Naval installations in Virginia, Maryland and San Diego.

OpConnects says that it manages almost 300 charging stations in 7 states.

Over the last year or so, several military bases have installed charging stations.  Most of those bases operate plug-in vehicles.  Soon, most US military bases will have charging stations and EVs as fleet vehicles.
