By: Velvet Spicer August 7, 2018

Moser Services Group LLC’s PowerCharge division has released a series of electric vehicle charging stations for home use.

The Energy Series line of chargers follows the successful launch of the Pro Series line of commercial charging stations in the spring of 2017. The company is located in Rush.

“We continue to identify the needs of our customers, so we have introduced a slim and durable charger designed for residential use,” said Moser Services President Mike Moser. “the unit has a simple plug-in installation and can easily be mounted on a garage wall or a pedestal near a parking space.

The Energy Series includes two residential models. The standard Energy model is a simple plug and charge station, while the Connect model links to the PowerCharge phone app using the home’s WiFi. The Connect model offers progressive features such as charge status reporting, remote on/off switch, scheduled charging and power consumption reporting.

“Most charging stations in the electric vehicle space can be fairly large and require a designated area to be installed,” Moser said. “With the Energy Series, the product is smaller than an 8.5”x11” sheet of paper, has simple plug-in installation and is outdoor rated, so it can be installed almost anywhere.”

Each of the PowerCharge models are up to six times faster than the standard 110-volt plug, delivering up to 20 miles of driving range for every hour of charge time, Moser said. The Energy model retails at $599, while the Connect model will sell for $799.

“The electric vehicle market will continue to grow and designing cutting-edge equipment that fits the lifestyle of the driver will help fuel its acceptance,” he added.

A recent report by Wood Mackenzie Ltd. suggests that North America’s charging infrastructure will draw $18.6 billion by 2030, while the International Energy Agency expects the global fleet of electric vehicles to more than triple to 13 million by the end of the decade.

The EV charging industry will always have room for high-quality, competitively priced products, and that is what we are providing with PowerCharge.”PowerCharge’s sister company, EV Charge Solutions, is one of the largest EVSE distributors in the US. “As a distributor of 10 product brands, we recognized a gap in a few product offerings,” said President Mike Moser. “As our team searched for solutions, we determined there was an opportunity to bring a new brand of products to market.

Governor Cuomo Announces Installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

April 2013

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that more than 360 electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid charging stations will be installed across the state in support of his Charge NY initiative.

Charge NY, unveiled by Governor Cuomo during his State of the State address earlier this year, is an initiative to create a statewide network of up to 3,000 public and workplace charging stations over the next five years and to put up to 40,000 plug-in vehicles on the road during that perio. This initiative is being spearheaded by both the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).


“Building this network of innovative charging stations will encourage New Yorkers to use fuel-efficient alternatives like electric vehicles as well as grow the green industry and jobs in the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Charge NY program shows how New York is leading the way toward an electric vehicle future, and it is helping to drive the state’s clean energy economy.”

“These charging stations – well placed for public use – will help encourage more electric vehicles on the road,” said Gil C. Quiniones, NYPA president and CEO. “The Power Authority is proud to move the Governor’s clean transportation agenda forward with this consumer demand-driven program.”

In addition, NYSERDA has awarded $3.6 million to 14 organizations to install more than 260 electric vehicle charging stations across the state, from Long Island to Buffalo. Most stations will be dual charging stations, with the ability to accommodate two vehicles at once.

“The Governor’s announcement today is just one more step the State is taking to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and promote the use of electric vehicles as a viable option to consumers,” said Francis J. Murray Jr., President and CEO, NYSERDA. “The investment the State is making in this infrastructure, under Governor Cuomo, underscores our continued commitment to clean energy and energy efficiency programs, which will also help to stimulate the economy and protect our environment.”


Canandaigua firm creates electric-vehicle subsidiary

The (Rochester) Democrat & Chronicle
November 2013

As more and more local businesses try to accommodate electric-powered cars and trucks, the electric-vehicle supply division of MyFleetDept, a Canandaigua fleet management firm, has become its fastest-growing segment.



Last week, MyFleetDept moved the electric-vehicle supply end of the business into its own subsidiary named EV Charge S
lutions.

EV Charge Solutions will work on projects funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority as well as deal with commercial customers.

Also, the subsidiary has opened an online store offering a range of EV charging products.

The site, www.evCHARGEsolutions.com, provides information about the locations in the region of charging stations and funding opportunities related to EVs. The site also answers questions about which EV equipment might work best in a given situation.

"Breaking out the EV charging business from our core fleet management business will allow each team to better focus on their business unit," Michael Moser, president of MyFleetDept, said. "This will provide us with the resources necessary to strengthen and grow both operations."
