  • Basic chargers are more reliable
  • HYDRA uses a simple numeric access control system – no keys, tokens or cards to issue
  • The owner controls all aspects including the pricing
  • Our load management feature allows owners to set limits during peak usage periods
  • We have optional Billing Services to recover expenses

 

Large for-profit EV charging networks serving thousands of customers are expensive to operate, requiring hundreds of technicians and customer support people. Liberty PlugIns is an access control technology company dedicated to creating sustainable and cost effective EV charging infrastructure at workplaces and residential multi-unit dwellings.
