Rhombus Energy Solutions 60kW DC Fast Charger and D2 Dispenser with Nuvve V2G Platform Added to Southern California Edison Approved Product List
Products are now eligible for SCE’s “Charge Ready MDHD” Rebate Program
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. — SEPTEMBER 9, 2021
Today, Rhombus Energy Solutions is announcing the inclusion of its market-leading RES-DCVC60-480-V2G 60kW vehicle-to-grid (V2G) capable DC fast charger Power Control System (PCS) and RES-D2-CS20-V2G dispenser on the Southern California Edison (SCE) Charge Ready Transport Program Approved Product List for Medium Duty/Heavy Duty (MDHD) electric vehicles (EVs). This approval paves the way for both the Rhombus-branded and Nuvve-branded versions of this charger and dispenser to operate in V2G mode on Nuvve’s aggregation network. More importantly, the PCSs and remote dispenser are now eligible for the California Public Utilities Commission rebate program for EV chargers which is administered by SCE. These incentives and rebates enable customers to significantly reduce the purchase price of V2G-enabled Rhombus chargers and dispensers, and are in addition to Federal and California incentives that are available for vehicle electrification and the installation of alternative fuel infrastructure such as EV Support Equipment (EVSE).
“Rhombus Energy Solutions is very excited to have our V2G-capable products added to the SCE Charge Ready Transport Program for medium-duty and heavy-duty electric vehicles,” said Rick Sander, CEO of Rhombus Energy Solutions. “The addition of Rhombus products to this list provides customers in SCE’s service area with an opportunity to field state-of-the-art DC fast chargers that are designed specifically for the demands of medium- and heavy-duty EVs. Rhombus chargers are also bidirectional, allowing customers to future-proof their investment by being able to support V2G through Nuvve’s platform to further reduce their costs.”
Rhombus Energy Solutions DC fast chargers are designed and manufactured in the USA and are UL 1741-SA certified, enabling their use for V2G deployments. Nuvve’s proprietary V2G technology provides a means for EV fleet operators to utilize their vehicles as a source of energy storage, allowing power to be put back onto the grid during peak demand hours, or to be used to power buildings in a “behind the meter” approach. The combination of Nuvve’s V2G aggregation platform and the market-leading reliability of Rhombus’s high-power fast DC chargers provides fleet operators with tools to significantly reduce energy costs by enabling them to put power back on the grid during high rate peak hours, and then recharging during off-peak, lower rate times. The combination will allow fleet operators for vehicles such as school buses, public transit buses, and municipal vehicles to provide emergency power during power outages.
“Being included in SCE’s Charge Ready Transport Program Approved Product List is an exciting opportunity for fleet customers to take advantage of the benefits of Nuvve’s V2G platform,” said Gregory Poilasne, chairman and CEO of Nuvve. “These chargers from Rhombus integrated with our GIVe platform have been certified to the strict standards required in California and are an important piece of the electrification puzzle to ensure EVs are introduced to the grid in an intelligent, efficient way. Having bidirectional, aggregation capability like what is available today through our technology is key for future grid resiliency, to prevent blackouts, and to provide the energy storage resources needed to better integrate renewable energy.”
Current and potential customers that are in the SCE service area and are interested in the Charge Ready Transport Program for Medium Duty and Heavy Duty vehicles can find more information on the program at https://crt.sce.com/overview.
