Wallboards of the same type as at Komerční banka branches on Wenceslas Square and in Stodůlky are installed at all PPL locations.
The alternating charging stations supply energy via the on-board rectifier of the electric car to its battery. They use a standard mains voltage of 50 Hz, which is converted in the rectifier into a suitable DC charging current for the electric car battery. The size of the on-board rectifiers is determined by the limited space requirements and the possibility of cooling the waste heat generated during the charging process directly on board the car. This practically limits the maximum charging power from AC charging stations. Charging stations are produced in a range of power outputs, the most powerful of which reach peak charging outputs of 22 kW.
During December, these charging stations were installed by Greenbuddies Charging at the following locations of PPL CZ logistics centres: Jažlovice, Plzeň, Teplice, Úžice, Řeporyje and Karlovy Vary. The installed technology was supplied directly by the partner company ChargeUp Services CZ from the manufacturer Circontrol.
In 2023, Greenbuddies will install about 200 more charging stations at 70 locations of PPL CZ logistics centres across the Czech Republic.
