James,

Thank you for responding to my inquiry about safety issues surrounding electric vehicle charging stations. I did visit your website, and can see that the service you provide is very important for the safety of electric vehicle owners. Your patented power cutoff safety device is definitely needed to insure that the power is automatically shutoff in the even of a collision with a EVCS. Hope you are doing well, and thank you for your response. Tommy

Tommy,
Sorry for the delay I have been out of town. We have discovered that if a charging station is struck or ran over or vandalized there is a strong possibility of electrocution. The problem is not the charging station but the power feed to the station and if the feed does not arc then you will have 240v to 480v of live power. Our patented safety device will automatically shut the power off at the source once it detects a collision or hard impact. The biggest problem is our First Responders in each city are not getting the training and it is not a priority like it should be. We have discovered that Fire Chiefs across the Country are concerned for the safety of each responder.
I saw a troubling photo on this page of the stations mounted on the wall, look how far back they are from the vehicle once it is parked. That is a accident waiting to happen and I am at awe that it was allowed.
Tommy, Please feel free to visit our website by googling Greenstar Concepts LLC Louisville Ky. We take great pride in Safety and taking preventive measure for EVSE products.
Thank You,
James

James,

Thanks for the valuable information about the dangers of EV charging stations. Could you elaborate further about the specifics of those dangers for the benefit of the other blog readers. Thank you.

All the charging stations are fine and dandy, people are forgetting the inherent dangers associated with these stations. I am a EVSE Dealer Contractor and we did not get one of these huge Federal Grants. We discovered the inherent dangers and for the past year we have been working aggressively to inform as many as possible, including the Manufacturers. Our discovery has postponed our sales and we have been on a Nationwide Campaign to train our First Responders on the dangers and the many scenerios that come along with it. I have read 1.5 million stations in by 2015 and I have seen these stations installed with no precautions like bollards, curbs, etc. It is just a matter of time before someone gets hurt or killed and the finger pointing will begin. My Company has even developed a safety device that works with Charging Stations and it has been tested and it will save lives .....We have been hung up on , ignored, yelled at.....nobody wants to believe there are Dangers. I challenge people to call your local Fire Department and ask them, what would the protocol be for Car vs. Charging Station??? I DONT KNOW .....is what we here across the Country.
My business partner and I are doing this out of our own pockets and yeah it hurts because we have shallow pockets.
Thanks for letting post on your board...

The market seems to perk up. Especially on the auto side.
