The project will equip 355 parking spaces with EV chargers at nine properties.

ESD Global has selected Atom Powers as technology vendor to provide electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) for multi-family buildings in New York City.

The largest single-contract, multi-family EV charging project in the city, the project will equip 355 parking spaces with EV chargers at nine Queens, NYC Hilltop Village properties, Atom Power stated. The company noted the project will advance New York’s goal of cutting carbon emissions by increasing access to EV charging infrastructure.

“With EV adoption happening at an exponential pace, EV charging infrastructure needs to be scaled up and enhanced in parallel,” remarked Vrindavanam Murali, president of ESD Global. “According to ESD Global’s evaluation, Atom Power’s EVSE is the only product that can meet today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their requirements. This project, along with ESD-Connect integrated software, maximizes efficiency, minimizes utility expenses, and enhances long-term sustainability.”

Atom Power pointed out that it commercialized the world’s first and only UL-listed solid-state digital circuit breaker in 2019. The firm contends its technology provides a scalable, intelligent power management platform that delivers up to 50% cost savings by centralizing the power management system, eliminating costly maintenance and reducing equipment costs. It explained the smart technology that charges an EV – the electrical panel and digital circuit breaker – resides inside a building, lowering the risk of costly damage to EV charging pedestals and wall boxes.

“Electrification of everything in our everyday lives is a key step in the global transition to clean energy,” commented Ryan Rizor, Atom Power’s vice president of sales. “Our fully digital circuit breaker can seamlessly manage the variability that comes with renewable resources and increased EV charging without disrupting our quality of life. Simply put, our technology enables the electrification of everything.”
