Case Study - Scalability
Client: Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC, Canada
Number of EV spaces added: 43 Plugzio enabled EV parking spaces added
Final cost of the installation with Plugzio: Less than $55,000 including a new transformer
That is less than $1,300 per space. In comparison, a Level 2 charging solution would have costed $6,600 per space, about 5 times more expensive compared with Plugzio. It is obvious that there is not enough power to feed the 43 power hungry chargers individually so the client would have to opt-in for an even more costly load-balanced level 2 solution.
