ConnectDER , the developer of a meter collar that integrates between the home’s electric meter socket and the meter itself, will supply Siemens with a proprietary plug-in adapter for electric vehicle chargers. The new device will enable electric vehicle (EV) owners to charge EVs by connecting chargers directly through the meter socket, a convenient and efficient location available on every home. By bypassing a home’s electric service panel, the adapter will save an estimated 60 to 80% of the charger installation cost by avoiding the need for electric panel upgrades. Based on ConnectDER’s innovative sensing and controlling adapter platform, this new EV home-charging technology will be designed and manufactured by ConnectDER exclusively for Siemens. By allowing for a simple, 15-minute EV charger install, the technology eliminates the need for complex and prohibitively expensive installations. Nearly half of US home panels would need upgrades to allow the installation of a […]
