Evatran says it has completed two new installations of its Plugless Power wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging technology as part of the company's Apollo Launch Program: one system at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and another at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.

This Google installation adds to the first-generation wireless charging system Evatran installed at the campus in March 2011. The LADWP installation is part of the Garage of the Future initiative and is showcased with solar panels, energy storage batteries and other types of EV charging equipment in downtown Los Angeles.

The Apollo Launch Program, kicked off earlier this year, follows commercial partners as they trial wireless charging technology installed on their own Chevy Volt and Nissan LEAF vehicles. The second phase of the program, with announced participant SPX Service Solutions, will begin in early 2013.

The Google and LADWP installations are in addition to existing systems at Hertz Corp., Duke Energy, and the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research in Greenville, S.C., Evatran notes.
