Xeal, a leading provider of EV charging stations and smarter technology for the multifamily and commercial real estate industries, today announced an agreement with Hunt Companies, Inc., one of the leading developers in the Hawaiian Islands, to install 19 Level-2 chargers at the Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Kalaeloa, Oahu, Hawaii.
Xeal’s installation of the chargers is expected to be completed in Q2 2023, and the Daniel Kahikina Akaka Clinic is slated to be fully completed in 2024. The clinic will feature primary, women’s and mental healthcare, along with a wide range of specialty care solutions. In addition to Hawaii, the clinic will serve veterans in the Pacific Islands, including Guam, Saipan, Tinian, Rota and American Samoa.
“Hunt Companies is committed to fostering a more resilient and environmentally sustainable Hawaii,” said Thomas Lee, Senior Vice President, Development, Hunt Companies, Hawaii. “We are excited to partner with Xeal to introduce its revolutionary technology at the Daniel K. Akaka VA Clinic in Kalaeloa. These charging stations will provide a valuable and affordable resource to our veterans, their families, doctors, staff, and the greater West Oahu Community. Hunt Companies, Hawaii is proud to be a part of this evolution.”
Xeal’s charging platform and its proprietary Apollo protocol utilize a self-reliant, distributed connectivity solution that has all of the benefits of a smart charger but removes the frustrating bottleneck of centralized IT infrastructure that leads to charger downtime. This approach provides residents with the industry’s most reliable EV charging experience via a user-friendly platform that doesn’t depend on a central server or any IT infrastructure to successfully initiate a charging session, transact, and perform all other smart functions.
“We are excited to be working with Hunt Companies as they add EV charging solutions to one of the nation’s newest VA facilities, the Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic,” said Alexander Isaacson, Co-Founder and CEO at Xeal. “Hunt’s exceptional leadership highlights the movement to make electric vehicles and EV charging accesible to everyone. Xeal is proud to offer the most reliable and secure EV charging solution to veterans, as well as the families, doctors, nurses, and teams who are a vital part of providing this important care.”
