6 Months of Free Electricity Offered with Plugless Power Reservation

Evatran, which produces Plugless Power, a wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging system, opened its online reservation system last week and announced that it is offering a $150 rebate card for up to 6 months of free electricity to customers who use the system.

“The Preferred Customer Group will allow Evatran to understand its focus areas for product rollout and follows the recent news of the installation partnership with Sears Home Services(TM),” Evatran commented.

“The incentive is open to the first 500 Nissan Leaf or Chevrolet Volt reservations, and joining the Preferred Customer Group by reserving a system requires no upfront financial commitment.”

The benefit of the Plugless Power system is obvious — it’s convenient. The EV driver doesn’t really have to do anything.

“The wireless system automatically begins charging based on the vehicle’s requirements, which are communicated to the charging station over a wireless interface that mimics the corded SAE J1772 standard.”

All the EV needs is a small vehicle adapter mounted to the undercarriage of the car and “wired directly into the vehicle’s existing on-board battery charger.”

Here’s more on the rebate being offered, via the news release:

No financial commitment is required for the reservation of a system, and the incentive will continue until the Preferred Customer Group reaches 500 Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt owners. The first 500 names on the reservation list will receive a rebate card for $150 – the average electricity cost per mile across the United States ($.03/mile) for an average six-month mileage rate of 5,000 miles. The Preferred Customers will receive their rebate card when they complete the purchase process for their Plugless Power system later in 2012.

Note that Google has been testing wireless EV charging using Plugless Power since March or so.
