Electric Era Technologies

Seattle-based Electric Era Technologies, a manufacturer of EV fast charging stations, announced the launch of the first of more than 10 commercial installations across the United States this year, with an installation of its proprietary PowerNode charging station at a Portland Plaid Pantry, with a goal of 10,000 installations across the U.S. by 2030. The Plaid Pantry installation is the first-of-its-kind deployment for Electric Era's patented AC-coupled microgrid EV fast charging technology which combines battery and grid power in real time to distribute to EVs when they charge. The technology uses 25% of the typical draw from legacy EV chargers on the electrical grid, from 800kW down to 200kW, allowing operators to avoid demand-based operating expenses and bolstering the reliability of aging infrastructure. A 10-minute charge from the PowerNode charging station can typically deliver 100 miles of range, depending on the vehicle age and onboard technology. Electric Era Technologies was launched in 2019 by former SpaceX engineers; its PowerNode EV charging stations deliver high-speed, electrical grid-friendly charging at gas stations, convenience stores and quick service retailers across the United States.
