The Georgia Institute of Technology and Recharge Solutions Int'l LLC kicked off a unique pilot project at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center on December 5, 2011.
MIAMI, Dec. 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Georgia Institute of Technology
unique pilot project at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center on
December 5, 2011. The event featured demonstrations of the newly installed
RSI level II 220 volt electric vehicle (EV) charging system and 110 volt
electric fleet charging system. The RSI Systems are the first in the nation
specifically designed for multi-level garages and fleets.
The RSI 220 volt Level II chargers will be available to the University's
faculty, students and visitors 24/7. Users can register for short or long
term charging and pay by credit card on an hourly or monthly basis. The RSI
Fleet System will enable the University to effectively monitor the usage and
costs of its present electric vehicle fleet.
"Georgia Tech recognizes the importance of reducing dependence on foreign
oil and pollution from our cars. The RSI EV charging systems will allow us
to provide this new technology for cars and our fleet and upon successful
conclusion of the pilot project we anticipate expanding the two systems as
demand grows for electric vehicles," said Lance Lunsway, Georgia Tech
Director of Transportation.
The RSI System offers a unique patent-pending design, which features:
-- Flexibility to accommodate all garage configurations and parking
-- Scalability to expand from one car or over 200 cars simultaneously, as
EV demand develops;
-- Ability to control access, time of use, payment method and provide
on-going management information;
-- Ability to provide local utilities with actual EV charging usage
-- Unique ability to manage any alternative fuel (i.e., natural gas,
hydrogen, etc.), thereby assuring long-term viability for garage and fleet owners/operators.
"We are excited to provide Georgia Tech with our advanced EV charging
Systems. We believe the pilot projects will clearly demonstrate the value
that our Systems can provide to multi-level garage and fleet owners," said
Matthew Leibowitz, CEO of Recharge Solutions Int'l.
