STRAHNET™ EV Pole

STRAHNET has developed a progressive, electric vehicle charging solution for landowners to incorporate EV charging into any land development where a pole may stand. Featuring a non proprietary charging head and cradle, the STRAHNET EV charging dock was designed to accommodate all makes and models of EV cars. STRAHNET’s experience in the steel utility pole industry allows for the retrofitting of existing poles in a manner neither accessible or economic for competitors or other developers of EV car charging. Our intuitive method of retrofitting an already existing structure greatly reduces the costs for landowners to become EV charging capable by eliminating the process of asphalt tear up and installing the necessary electrical conduit to the unit. EV charging is just one modular feature STRAHNET poles are capable of being equipped with to enhance the utility of already standing pole sites.

EVPOLES™ and ADPOLES™ systems and method embodiments are directed to the retrofitting of existing poles to provide additional functionality in the form of one or more electric vehicle charging stations, with optional advertising and/or Internet connectivity capabilities.

 As EV usage continues to increase, there will be a corresponding need to increase the number of locations at which EV power supplies can be recharged. While EVs may be somewhat easily recharged at a residential location – either through a standard 120V household outlet (i.e., Level 1 charging) or a specially installed 240V (Level 2) charging station – the limited range offered by most EV power supplies also mandates the existence of non-residential Level 2 and Level 3 (DC) charging stations if EVs are to serve as anything more than short-range, local transportation.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy website, there are currently less than 20,000 publicly available EV charging stations in the United States. This lesser number of charging stations in comparison to the surplus of 100,000 gasoline stations still means that EV drivers have far fewer choices in any given area and must frequently plan long trips based on the location of charging stations rather than on a desired route.

It should be understood that there is clearly a need for improved systems and methods by which EV charging stations may be more easily and cost effectively retrofitted to existing poles, and without the other deficiencies inherent to known systems and techniques. EVPOLES™ retrofit EV charging systems and methods of installation satisfy this need and may optionally offer additional novel and valuable features.

EVPOLES™ embodiments of the general inventive concept include retrofit EV charging systems and methods of retrofit installation. According to these embodiments, an EV charging station may be added to an existing light pole or another pole having an electricity supply. EVPOLES™ EV charging system embodiments may utilize the current infrastructure of existing light pole or other electricity-supplied poles and their location settings.

In addition to utilizing Internet connectivity for POS/POP purposes, EVPOLES™ system and method embodiments may offer pay for use Internet connectivity to EV charging customers and others within range of a given charging station. For example, when a person having a Wi-Fi equipped device such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop computer, etc., enters an area of Wi-Fi connectivity surrounding an EVPOLES™ EV charging station, the Wi-Fi enabled device may display a message that identifies the Wi-Fi network and offers secure Internet access based on some presented terms. Such a message/offer may also be presented by a display of the EV charging station at some point during an interaction of an EV charging customer and the system. As in the case of paying for EV charging at the EV charging station, payments for Internet access may be transacted in a similar manner.

As would no doubt be familiar to most, the last decade has seen a proliferation of electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing, sales and use. The reasons are likely many, including but not limited to legislation, gasoline prices, increasing evidence of the negative effect of fossil fuel emissions on climate change, and advances in battery and other relevant technologies.

It is envisioned that a plurality of EVPOLES™ systems may be located in proximity to one another. For example, a number of EVPOLES™ EV charging systems may be located in the parking lot of a commercial establishment (store). In such a case, the systems may engage in pole-to-pole communications. Furthermore, individual systems may be equipped with extenders to provide a larger area of Internet connectivity and intercommunication or may be equipped with appropriate Wi-Fi communication hardware (e.g., routers) to form a mesh network.
