The Navy has bought $60,000 worth of EV charging stations from OpConnect. “The OpConnect dual Level I & II units, capable of charging four vehicles at the same time, will be installed at Navy facilities in Washington, DC;Indian Head, MD and San Diego, CA. These charging stations will be powered by OpConnect’s EV Charging Network and will be used by service personnel as part of a pilot program for electric vehicle readiness in Navy facilities.” Here’s a video about OpConnect’s EV charging stations:

Yeah, they could have made the video a little less sales-y.

“The OpConnect system is an authenticated solution that allows owners to restrict access via custom, credit, fleet or debit cards. The system’s over-the-wire firmware upgrade capability allows the units to be field configured remotely, providing for a very flexible, extensible solution for large customers with complex needs.”

OpConnect, notably, is a veteran-owned business.
