Generac Power Systems, Inc. has introduced its first EV charging system. The 48A / 11.5kW Generac EV charger is a Level 2 home charger capable of charging a car battery in four to six hours, depending on the car battery’s capacity and charge need. The unit’s J1772 connector is out-of-the-box compatible with nearly all EVs on the market today, Generac says, and a NEMA-4 enclosure makes the unit rated for indoor and outdoor residential installation.
“We’ve seen an unprecedented rise in demand for electric vehicles in the United States,” said Joshua Brister, director of product management at Generac. “We’re excited to help satisfy this high demand by adding the Generac EV charger to our network of energy technology products.”
The Generac EV charger will be available through various home improvement retailers, wholesalers and hardware stores. Customers will also have the ability to have an in-home consultation with a turnkey installation through Generac’s dealers, the company says.
