Greentech Lead America: Coulomb Technologies has
completed more than 2400 shipments of its public and commercial charging
stations for electric vehicles through its ChargePoint America program.
Coulomb has seen demand in all 10 regions of the program
and is finalizing the installation of charging stations within these regions.
The ChargePoint America program is made possible by a $15
million matching grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
through the Transportation Electrification Initiative administered by the
Department of Energy.
“The ChargePoint America program has helped make San
Francisco EV-ready. We are investing in the innovation and infrastructure that
will make us the EV capitol of the US and help secure our sustainable future,”
said Melanie Nutter, director of San Francisco Department of the Environment.
“In June 2010, ChargePoint America kicked off its national
campaign in Orlando — which has been at the forefront of electric vehicles.
For 89 years, OUC has been evolving to fit the needs of its customers and this
strategic partnership with Coulomb ensures the necessary infrastructure is in
place to continue to do so well into the future,” said OUC Vice President of
Sustainable Services Byron Knibbs.
Coulomb’s ChargePoint America program provides
approximately 4500 charging stations to program participants in ten regions in
the United States. The program is a strategic partnership between Coulomb and
six leading automobile brands: Ford, Chevrolet, smart USA, BMW, Nissan and
Any purchaser of a program electric vehicle, whose home
is located within one of the ten target regions, may be eligible to receive a
home charging station at no cost.
Similar to the commercial and public stations, the
residential charge stations are connected to the ChargePoint Network and data
is being collected to understand the infrastructure utilization.
“We are further laying the groundwork to reduce our
dependency on foreign oil in our nation. You can see the results of our grant
every day in the US where these charging stations are installed. EVs are good
for the automobile industry, good for consumers and good for the economy,” said
Pat Romano, president and CEO at Coulomb Technologies.
