GE today unveiled the residential GE WattStation, an easy-to-use electric vehicle (EV) charger. Following the announcement of the public charger in July, the residential GE WattStation is designed to help accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles by significantly decreasing time needed for vehicle charging and, using smart grid technology, allowing utility companies to manage the impact of electric vehicles on the local and regional grids. Michael Mahan, global product manager for GE WattStation, said, "The residential WattStation's easy functionality and design allows for uncomplicated integration of quick electric vehicle charging into your everyday activities." GE has partnered with ServiceMagic, the nation's leading website connecting consumers with service professionals, to provide a network of certified electricians for reliable installation of the residential WattStation in the consumers' home. In addition GE Capital, working with ServiceMagic, will provide financing options, enabling consumers to pay for the charger and installation costs over time.
