Patcay.com – First electric car charging station in the United States has been announced by Google. The charging stations are called Wireless Charging for Electric Vehicles (WCEV), and will use induction technology to charge electric cars without the need for wires.
WCEV will be available at locations in California, Texas, and Washington by 2024. Google said that it will expand the availability of WCEVs to more locations across the United States in the coming years.
WCEVs use induction technology to deliver power to electric cars. Electric cars must be equipped with an induction power receiver to use WCEVs.

Google says that WCEVs have several advantages over traditional wired electric car charging stations. WCEVs are safer because there are no wires to cut. WCEVs are also more convenient as drivers don’t have to get out of the car to charge.
“We are committed to helping accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles,” said Urs Hölzle, SVP Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Engineering at Google. “WCEV is an important step in realizing our vision of making electric car charging easier and more convenient.”
Google has been working with automakers and charging infrastructure companies to develop WCEVs. Google has also obtained a patent for the induction technology used in WCEVs.
The launch of WCEV is Google’s latest step in supporting electric vehicles. Google has also invested in research and development of electric vehicle batteries, and has developed tools that help automakers develop more energy-efficient electric vehicles.
