XCharge North America is establishing a 3,500 sq ft manufacturing facility in the City of Kyle committed to researching, developing, distributing, and providing services for its core EV charging solutions, which will focus on U.S. energy grid obstacles and meet the demand for EV transportation.
The facility will help increase local EV accessibility. Currently, the county only has 20 public-access Level-2 and DC Fast charging stations within the San Marcos city limits and surrounding counties, for a population that exceeds 68,000 community members. Considering its technical business aspects, XCharge NA plans to expand facilities to approximately 200,000 sq. ft. within the coming years.
"Hays County was a perfect location for us to establish our domestic operations, given its scalable facilities and land availability,” said Aatish Patel, the President, and Co-founder of XCharge NA. “Furthermore, it provides us with the opportunity to partner with the local community – such as Texas State University – to increase job opportunities.”
"This addition to our local community represents a step towards establishing green initiatives and maintaining sustainability for our local environment," said San Marcos Mayor, Jane Hughson. "We're committed to supporting nationally established green and electrification goals, and the XCharge North America partnership will play a key role in that success."
XCharge NA has introduced its Net Zero Series (NZS) battery-based charging station to its portfolio to provide both individual and community benefits to commercial deployments and serve as a backup power reserve with bi-directional charging capabilities.
The company’s DC Fast Charging (DCFC) station, C6AM, has the ability to utilize 208vac or 480vac input voltage to allow for up to 150kW of output. The station is easy to install, operate, and service, while enabling DCFC availability in infrastructure and space-limited environments.
The Net Zero Series (NZS), a Battery Energy Store System (BESS) with an integrated DCFC system, has a 233 kWh battery pack, 194 kW DCFC with the ability to utilize battery energy to support the local grid and e-mobility.
The company not only works with Open Charge Alliance's Open Charge Point Protocol but is also complying with the required UL and Energy Star certification for all its core products.
