Basically, the idea here is to allow charging stations owners and utility companies to communicate with the EVSE to remotely optimize charging schedules to coincide with off-peak energy rates. In this way, ClipperCreek's pairing with Jetlun is rather similar to Ecotality's partnership with Cisco.
Jetlun's JIM technology will be integrated into ClipperCreek's UL-listed CS-40 Level 2 charging station and its LCS-20 residential charging unit that retails for $1,650.
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ClipperCreek, Inc., the leading producer of Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) and Jetlun Corporation, a leading provider of intelligent energy management solutions for homes and buildings, today announced their collaboration to offer a Smart Grid-enabled EVSE to allow EV charging station owners to remotely monitor and control their EVSE and to opt-in to participate to their utility programs to reduce energy costs.
"Jetlun's innovative energy management product line and industry knowledge allows ClipperCreek to continue its leadership position."
"We are extremely pleased in our collaboration with Jetlun and the information and control this will put in our customers' hands," said Jason France, CEO of ClipperCreek. "Jetlun's innovative energy management product line and industry knowledge allows ClipperCreek to continue its leadership position."
The product will integrate Jetlun's Intelligent Management ("JIM") system for accurate monitoring of the energy usage of the EVSE, and to enable remote on/off switching by the charging station owner or the utility. The solution bridges a number of communication solutions to ensure unprecedented seamless integration.
"Jetlun welcomes the opportunity to introduce our technology into the world of electric vehicles," said Elsa Chan, Jetlun CEO. "This will give both station owners and utilities the power to accurately and effectively monitor and control loads, which is a critical factor in electrical vehicles' smart grid viability."
Jetlun's JIM technology will be integrated into ClipperCreek's industry leading CS and LCS (ClipperCreek's new residential unit) products. UL listed units will be available this summer.
