Brisbane-based global electric vehicle DC fast-charging technology provider Tritium has been awarded a contract from the City of Pasadena in California to install 20 Tritium RT50/50kW DC Fast Chargers in the city’s Marengo Charging Plaza.

Tritium says the addition of the 20 fast chargers, in combination with 24 Tesla superchargers, has made the rooftop Marengo Charging Plaza the largest public-access DC Fast Charging location in the US, housing 44 DC Fast-Charging stations.

Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) manages and owns the Tritium stations and Tritium says the community-owned non-profit utility is on track to have a 50% green portfolio by 2030 with hydro, solar, and wind power already a part of its energy mix.

“We believe that Fast-Charging facilities like the Marengo Charging Plaza provide Pasadena residents and commuters with the confidence they need to drive electric,” says PWP Assistant General Manager, Marvin Moon.

“We appreciate Tritium’s staff for the support they have given PWP both during and after construction to help ensure a great customer experience.”

Tritium says that in the short time before this official announcement, the chargers already logged more than 7,000 unique charging sessions combined, and until May 31, 2020, the City’s fast-chargers are free of charge for EV drivers who pay to park in the garage.

After that time, customers of the garage can pay for the service using a credit card, Greenlots EV Charging Network, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or a Tap and Go Credit Card. To complete an 80 percent charge with the Tritium 50kW charger, it takes EV owners an average of 30 minutes.

“True energy freedom can only be realized when you no longer have to plan for a complete battery fill-up. Tritium is driving this but considering all the stakeholders involved in this ground-breaking project, it’s the City of Pasadena that’s the real leader for making this possible in 2020,” said Mike Calise, Tritium’s President of the Americas.

“DC applications are expanding well beyond corridor or city-to-city connections. This location serves EV driver needs at a much higher energy level for a typical destination or dwell time stay. Installations like this are changing the way drivers think about dwell charging. It’s a super-fast dwell charger available on Main Street America. At the end of the day, it doesn’t take until the end of the day to fill up! We’re passionate about making ‘DC Everywhere’ happen.”
