Peerless-AV partners with Volta for next-gen EV stations
AURORA, Ill. – Peerless-AV®, an award-winning designer and manufacturer of innovative audio and video solutions and accessories, announced the newest generation of electric vehicle charging stations, created in partnership with Volta. Together they provide a seamless, simple and free charging experience that fuels transportation while inspiring positive change in the adoption of electric vehicles. This completely reimagined charging station is powered by forward thinking partners seeking meaningful and measurable brand building opportunities.
“We are proud of our partnership with Volta and are grateful for the opportunity to play an important role in their vehicle charging network that addresses the needs of drivers, site partners, advertisers, and the overall community,” said Nick Belcore, Executive Vice President, Peerless-AV. “Utilizing the latest technology, including our fully-sealed Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Displays, and an exquisite design, we are able to draw more attention to the stations, thus creating more awareness and opportunity for clean energy.”
This latest generation of electric vehicle charging station features a slim airfoil-like silhouette with a design focused on both user experience and community impact. Throughout the charging process, the station communicates real-time status updates to users using emotive and intuitive external lighting. The station includes dual displays built to meet the needs of brick-and-mortar locations seeking amenities that increase consumer traffic.
The new Volta charging station features Peerless-AV’s 55″ Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Displays. The ruggedized, optically bonded, and fully-sealed weatherproof design offers the utmost protection against all extreme outdoor conditions, such as rain, snow, sleet, dust, insects, and pressure washing. The Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Display is also equipped with ambient light sensors to automatically and gradually adjust the screen’s brightness based on the surrounding conditions, providing a clear, crisp picture, in the brightest direct sunlight.
“Working with Peerless-AV helps Volta to lead the industry in developing the most heavily used, future-forward, and economically compelling charging network,” said Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO, Volta. “The dual displays are key to inspiring and converting communities into buying an electric vehicle.”
New charging station locations are confirmed and coordinated using data modeling to map current demand and predict future growth. With stations in nine of the nation’s top twenty electric vehicle markets, regional networks are thoughtfully expanded to lead local electric vehicle market penetration. With this new generation of free charging stations installed around the U.S., Peerless-AV and Volta are looking forward to continued innovation and making communities better by using technology as a force for social change.
