Evatran signs installation deal with Sears Home Services
- December 13, 2011
Wytheville-based Evatran, a producer of wireless charging systems for electric vehicles, has signed an installation agreement with Sears Home Services that will make it easy for owners of electric cars to charge them at home.
Sears Home Services, the installation arm of Sears Holdings, will install Evatran’s Plugless Power system in homes and commercial sites.
Evatran officials say its Plugless Power systems recharge electric vehicles (EVs) as quickly as traditional options that involve an electrical cord and require the same type of electrical installation inside a customer’s home.
Evatran’s Plugless Power systems will be offered with optional basic or standard home installation wrapped into the purchase price of the equipment.
Sears installation technicians will be trained and certified on the wireless charging system.
The company will work with Evatran to develop a comprehensive plan for aftermarket systems throughout 2012.
Product offerings initially will focus on Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf models but will expand to include additional electric vehicles.
Installation will be offered with the sale of each Plugless Power system and priced based on the customer’s home and current electrical service.
Sears will also offer commercial installation for electric vehicle fleet owners and managers.
