For most of us not in the market for a "pedestal", why should we care?
Namely, because this pedestal sells for $434, and is designed for commercial and fleet applications, which means that combined with the low-cost ACS-15, a complete L2 external charging station can now be had for $813.
And as anyone who as priced the cost of a common-use charging station can tell you, that is pretty darn inexpensive. Hopefully this means a lot more L2 charging stations will pop up as a result. Now, go tell your boss that has been two cheap to buy one so far, that he/she has no excuse anymore.
Combine The Pedestal With Several Current ClipperCreek Stations For Under A Thousand
Looking at ClipperCreek's product lineup, it is clear that the ProMountDuo has been priced to be used in conjunction with one of the brand's more popular (and capable) units, the HCS-40, which features a 25 ft cable and the ability to charge at up to 7.7 kW. The two units retail together for $999.
Jason France, President of ClipperCreek (as well as founder), had this to say on the company's latest offering:
“ClipperCreek’s mission is to develop and promote Electric Vehicle adoption by designing superior value into every product we bring to market. There was a need for a more cost-effective, flexible, dual pedestal and we are proud to once again have engineered an advancement for the market."
At this time, the ProMountDuo can be paired with any combination of 10 different ClipperCreek charging stations, ranging from 120V to 240V charging at 12 to 48 Amps suitable for workplace, tenant, and fleet charging.”
