Grizzl-E Power Control and Payment Solution. The world’s first profitable commercial EV charging system.
Experience the Grizzl-E Difference
Unlike other Electric Vehicle Charging Stations that control every charging port with a smart device, the Grizzl-E Power Control and Payment Solution (GPCPS) uses just ONE smart device for an entire set of charging ports. This allows business owners to maximize their return on investment, while being the simplest and most flexible charging solution on the market.
Get your investment to work for you. GPCPS maximizes ROI because it operates with no network fees compared to other commercial EV charging models. This allows businesses to achieve an important milestone – actually making money on Electric Vehicle Charging Stations!
Simple to install, operate, and maintain. GPCPS gives businesses the ability to control their own system with the easy to use admin interface. The system has real-time error monitoring and reporting for fast issue resolution, and redundant circuits to ensure the charging station is always operational.
Fully customizable for a wide variety of business needs. Individual charging stations can be dedicated for private or public use and can accept coins, credit cards, RFID cards, or a PIN for payment or identification. Charging stations can be added, removed, or modified as your business, and electric vehicle use, grows.
The Grizzl-E Power Control and Payment Solution consists of the Power Control and Payment Hub (PCPH) and individual EV chargers, also called Nodes. There are 2 types of PCPH:
The PCPH has a fully integrated payment solution built into the hub. It can be used by businesses that want to collect payments directly at the station:
The PCPH features:
The PCPH Lite does not require payment at the hub. Payment plans can be issued to customers or employees who can identify themselves with a PIN or RFID card:
The PCPH Lite features:
Each PCPH includes 20 RFID cards for fast identification of frequent users.
Both the PCPH and PCPH Lite operate on redundant power, processors, and memory to eliminate critical failures due to computer malfunctions. The same principle that is used for computers on space missions.
Each individual Electric Vehicle charging station is called a Node and is made from a modified Grizzl-E EVSE with additional control functions.
At least one PCPH is required per site can accept and control an unlimited number of Nodes. Although it is not recommend to exceed 64 nodes per hub. The PCPH controls each node through a CAT6 wire, so there is no need for Wi-Fi or a cell signal.
The recommended minimum system set up is one PCPH and 10 Nodes. Individual Nodes are inexpensive to implement, allowing ample space for EV drivers.
The PCPH and PCPH-Lite can operate in 2 modes: Stand Alone mode and Connected Mode.
In Stand Alone Mode the control hub collects all required information and payments without an internet connection. This means that there is absolutely no network or payment fees.
In Connected Mode the control hub connects to the internet through a LAN, Wi-Fi or Cellular connection. Owners can set up, control, and draw data from the system online, and customers can make internet payments.
The GPCPS provides an easy to use admin interface to set up and control all the aspects of the EV charging station. The Admin interface allows owners to set up detailed prices either per hour or per KWH, assign Nodes to RFID cards or PIN codes, as well as turn Nodes ON and OFF by date or time. The system is extremely flexible and can accommodate a wide variety of business scenarios. Visit our Business Cases section to see customized solutions for different business types.
Individual Node Dedication
Individual Nodes can be dedicated for public, private, or special use. Public Nodes can be used by anyone and require payment at the hub. Private Nodes are issued to specific individuals through a payment plan or taxable benefit, and can be customized to accept identification through a RFID card or PIN code, or not require any identification at all. Nodes can also be specially customized for a combination of Public and Private use.
Access to the charging station can be provided by PIN codes, existing company RFID cards, specialized RFID cards included with the system, or on-site payment.
Multiple Nodes can be assigned to one power source to limit the total output. PCPH controls the current load in real time to reduce the output and maintain a maximum allowed amperage. Power Share can be dynamically managed depending on time of the day to maximize profits during peak and off-peak hours.
PCPH can participate in Demand/Response programs of local utility providers to shift the load to off-peak hours or for emergency power situations.
The PCPH collects complete telemetry of the charging sessions including date/time, user, session duration, KWH consumed, payments, usage, and profitability.
After the PCPH is installed it is extremely easy to expand your system. Nodes can be added, removed, modified, or replaced from the PCPH system Admin interface. Nodes connect in a chain with one control input and one control output. To install an additional Node, simply connect it by CAT6 wire with the nearest active Node and configure it on the Admin interface. Only takes 5 minutes to do!
Payments can be accepted by the coin collector (bills acceptor can be added) in Stand Alone Mode or by any payment provider in Connected Mode. The unit records the collected money and notifies the owner when the set threshold is met so they can retrieve the money once it reaches that point.
PCPH can be branded with a company Logo both on the screen and on the actual PCPH box.
The PCPH system has real-time monitoring for its health and the health of each Node, and provides error reporting for fast issue resolution. Since we know how important it is for you to keep the system running at all times, PCPH has the ability to switch to redundant circuits if the primary circuits fail, allowing the system to continue operation while repairs and parts are on the way.
Return on Investment Calculations
Return on Investment is the most important factor for the Grizzl-E Power Control and Payment Solution. The GPCPS maximizes ROI by minimizing operating costs, making it superior to all other electric vehicle charging stations on the market.
Prepare to crunch some numbers! See how the GPCPS can make you money:
Scenario: 1 PCPH plus 10 Nodes
Calculations: lets determine your profit per KWH
Grizzl-E is the superior choice for ROI. To see why the major commercial EV charging providers don’t talk about ROI look at the average current market case:
Scenario: Same price point and power costs as before.
Initial investment: Similar system of 10 ports. As you need to add a full 3-year warranty, the minimum price per port will be not less than $2500 USD. Without installation, your initial investment is not less than $25,000 USD.
Calculations: lets determine profit per KWH
Verdict: Even in the best-case scenario today there is no ROI in the current commercial Level 2 EV charging systems.
This is the main reason charging stations are not popping up everywhere! They DO NOT MAKE MONEY! Most current Commercial systems are purchased as an additional benefit to the property and do not provide a direct ROI. Business and consumers are hesitant to switch to electric vehicles because of this. The current situation will not lead to millions of commercial chargers being widely available. The Grizzl-E Power Control and Payment Solution is the first one to disrupt the existing paradigm.
