Plant Construction Company to Offer Electric Charging Stations at Facility in San Francisco

Oct 03, 2012 (Mass Media Distribution LLC via COMTEX) -- SAN FRANCISCO, CA (MMD Newswire) October 3, 2012 -- Founded in 1947, Plant Construction Company has grown to be a leader in the Northern California construction industry by concentrating on the exceptional execution of the work with which they are entrusted. Plant Construction Company recently announced that it will offer two electric charging stations at their facility at 300 Newhall Street in San Francisco. The ChargePro(TM) EV charging stations are developed and produced by SemaConnect, one of the leading electric vehicle charging station companies in the country. The wall-mounted electric charging stations will be for use by employees and guests of Plant Construction Company.


"California is moving in the direction of eco-friendly living and that includes business and recreation," said John Wilson, President of Plant Construction Company. "We are pleased to be part of this new movement in going green by offering electric car charging stations at our facility in San Francisco." About SemaConnect's ChargePro(TM) EV Charging Stations SemaConnect's ChargePro(TM) EV charging stations are smart and sophisticated, but simple, safe and reliable to use. In order to charge an electric vehicle, users unplug the connector from the station and plug it into the inlet on the electric vehicle. When the bright LED lights turn from blue to green, the vehicle is charging. When finished, users unplug the connector from the vehicle and return it to the station. It's as easy and safe as plugging-in a cell phone. The ChargePro(TM) EV charging stations are wirelessly networked into SemaConnect's SemaCharge(TM) Network. This allows EV drivers to sign up for a SemaCharge Pass that works similar to an EZ Pass. EV drivers load money onto the card, and simply wave it in front of the station. The station collects the charging information, and the user then can login to SemaCharge.com and see where they drove, how much electricity was used, fossil offset, locate other stations and more. There is also a supporting iPhone app to help locate other stations. The cost of fuel for an electric vehicle (EV) is approximately 25% of the cost for a gasoline vehicle. This comparative cost is based on a typical four-passenger EV, which consumes approximately four miles per kWh of electricity, assuming a cost of $0.12 per kWh. The comparative gasoline vehicle has an average fuel efficiency of 25 mpg with a cost of $3.60 per gallon.
