Coulomb Technologies Unveils ChargePoint Network Electric Vehicle Charging Station in New York City

Coulomb Technologies Unveils ChargePoint Network Electric Vehicle Charging Station in New York City

Coulomb Technologies today announced the installation of its first public ChargePoint® Networked Charging Station for electric vehicles (EV) in New York City, part of the $37 million ChargePoint America program. ChargePoint America will offer free stations for both public and home charging to individuals and businesses throughout the metropolitan area. Coulomb plans to install hundreds of ChargePoint Network EV charging stations throughout New York City where they will be used by individual vehicle owners and by fleets. The planning, installation and maintenance of these ChargePoint charging stations will create hundreds of jobs within the city and establish the necessary infrastructure to foster widespread adoption of electric vehicles. Coulomb is working with Ford, Chevrolet and smart USA, all of whom have announced plans to introduce EV in New York in the coming months. The first station is located at Edison Properties – 451 9th Avenue in Manhattan.

The ChargePoint Networked Charging Station will be unveiled at a press conference today at 11:00 AM EST at the Edison Properties garage with New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Coulomb CEO Richard Lowenthal, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and Edison Properties Chairman of the Board Jerry Gottesman. Also attending the ceremony are ChargePoint America programpartners including Ford and smart USA.

“To meet the ambitious goals in PlaNYC, our long-term sustainability agenda, we will have to reduce transportation emissions by taking mass transit, walking or riding a bike, and increasing the use of alternative-fuel and electric vehicles,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Coulomb Technologies and the ChargePoint America program will help us support a new type of vehicle on City streets so we can reduce pollution and emissions in the most efficient way.”

“Coulomb is excited to bring the ChargePoint America program to New York City and expand our ChargePoint® Network into Manhattan,” said Richard Lowenthal. “New York will be one of the first cities ready for electric vehicles when the automakers roll them out in the coming months. Installing these stations will impact the City in several ways: First, it will provide jobs to plan and install ChargePoint charging stations around the city. Second, it will reduce carbon emission here, and third, it will give New Yorkers the opportunity to choose a vehicle that reduces our dependence on oil.”

“My district is the epicenter of the childhood asthma epidemic in New York. There are plenty of good reasons for fleets and individuals to make the switch to electric vehicles, but the respiratory health of our children is paramount to me,” said Congressman José E. Serrano. “I applaud Coulomb for getting here first and for recognizing how well-positioned New York is for broad EV adoption. To speed us forward, I have called for the deployment of 24,000 new charging stations across the country in my e-Drive bill—HR 4399. Today, I am happy to see progress toward that goal and toward a clean energy future.”

Coulomb’s ChargePoint America program will provide nearly 5,000 charging stations to program participants in nine regions in the United States: Austin, Texas, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Fla., Sacramento, Calif., the San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area, Bellevue/Redmond, Wash., and Washington DC and is a strategic partnership between Coulomb and three leading automobile makers: Ford, Chevrolet and Smart USA. Coulomb currently has the largest established base of networked charging stations worldwide with more than 700 units shipped to more than 130 customers. Installation of the ChargePoint charging stations is beginning now in all nine designated regional metropolitan areas of the U.S.

ChargePoint America will offer both public and home charging stations to individuals and businesses. Businesses in and around New York interested in receiving free public charging stations should visit the ChargePoint America web site (http://chargepointamerica.com) and sign up by completing the application form. Individuals interested in purchasing an EV should sign up to receive more information about qualifying to receive a home charging station. Additionally, the ChargePoint America web site provides a way for drivers to suggest public locations for charging stations.

Coulomb’s ChargePoint® Network is open to all drivers of plug-in vehicles and provides authentication, management and real-time control for the networked electric vehicle charging stations. ChargePoint Network’s unique features include:
· Charging status by SMS text or email notification
· Location of unoccupied charging stations via smart phones
· A ChargePoint iPhone App
· Authenticated access to eliminate energy theft
· Authorized energizing for safety
· Smart Grid integration for utility load management with future V2G capabilities

About ChargePoint America
The $37 million ChargePoint America program is made possible by a $15M grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Transportation Electrification Initiative administered by the Department of Energy and a $3.4M grant from the California Energy Commission. ChargePoint America will provide 4,600 public and home ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations by October 2011, adding to the existing ChargePoint Network. Coulomb will work together with its distribution and industry partners to evaluate the demand from the respective geographic regions and allocate charging stations based on this and other factors. The ChargePoint America project will collect data characterizing vehicle use and charging patterns, and Purdue University and Idaho National Labs will analyze the data.
