Coulomb Technologies ships more than 2,400 public and commercial charging stations in ChargePoint America Program
Coulomb Technologies has shipped more than 2,400 public and commercial charging stations for electric vehicles through its $37-million ChargePoint America program. Coulomb says it has seen strong 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.
Coulomb’s ChargePoint America program provides approximately 4,500 charging stations to program participants in ten regions in the United States: Austin/San Antonio, Texas, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando/Tampa, Sacramento, Calif., San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area, Redmond/Bellevue, Wash., Washington DC/Baltimore, Southern Michigan (including Grand Rapids, Lansing, Ann Arbor and Detroit).
The program is a strategic partnership between Coulomb and six leading automobile brands: Ford, Chevrolet, smart USA, BMW, Nissan and Fisker Automotive.
Any purchaser of a program electric vehicle (Chevrolet Volt, Ford Transit Connect, Ford Focus Electric, BMW ActiveE, Nissan LEAF, smart fortwo electric drive or Fisker Karma), 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.
