“Fuji Electric is thrilled to be partnering with Residence Inn San Juan Capistrano and Evoasis to offer electric vehicle owners a fast and convenient charging method,” says Phil Charatz, president and CEO of Fuji Electric Corp. of America. “The integration of ChargePoint in our DC Quick Charger enhances the user experience, and we are proud to be the first publicly available DC Quick Charger on their network. We are committed to the EV industry, and will continue to take every opportunity available to further the development of the EV infrastructure in the United States.”

ChargePoint-enabled Fuji Electric stations are included on all ChargePoint mobile phone applications for iPhone and Android. These ChargePoint mobile apps provide an easy way to locate stations near any specified address and get turn-by-turn directions. Additionally, these applications allow drivers to utilize ChargePoint’s station reservation feature. Drivers can locate stations and make, view and cancel a reservation time slot directly from a smart phone. EV drivers can access features including the ability to: help with trip planning, manage the cost of charging, and find and operate public ChargePoint-enabled stations.

“The collaboration with Fuji Electric has been an important milestone for ChargePoint as we expand the reach of our network to serve all aspects of an EV driver’s charging needs,” said Pat Romano, president and CEO of ChargePoint. “The combination of Fuji Electric’s extensive DC charging experience and Residence Inn San Juan Capistrano’s reputation for helping travelers thrive on the road for extended periods made it ideal for the launch of the first publicly available DC Quick Charger on ChargePoint.”

The introduction of the Residence Inn unit marks Fuji Electric’s fourth operational DC Quick Charger in the U.S. following their formal entry into the North American market in March 2012. With more than 300 units deployed worldwide, the Tokyo-based electronics manufacturer has opted to focus on 25kW DC Quick Charging in the U.S., citing the need to help station owners manage installation and utility costs. Their new charging station will be released in December 2012, and will feature a slimmer design and optimized user interface.
