Coulomb Technologies has partnered with National Grid and others to extend Coulomb’s ChargePoint Network throughout New York State with the installation of more than 160 charging ports.
Coulomb received nearly $1 million of $4.4 million in funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)’s Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Demonstration Program to supply, deploy and install charging stations across New York State.
Both Coulomb Technologies and National Grid have a strong presence in New York. The ChargePoint Network, for example, is the largest network of public EV charging stations in New York and National Grid delivers electricity and natural gas to about 1.6 million customers in the upstate region.
Coulomb’s ChargePoint Network is the largest online global charging network. The ChargePoint Network provides drivers state of the art features including the ability to: help with trip planning, manage the cost of charging, and find and operate public ChargePoint-enabled stations. ChargePoint locations are included on all ChargePoint mobile phone applications for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. These ChargePoint mobile apps provide an easy way to locate stations near any specified address, get turn-by-turn directions, and even start and stop a charging session directly from a smart phone. Additionally, these apps allow drivers to utilize ChargePoint Network’s station reservation feature. Drivers can locate reservable stations, and then make, view and cancel a reservation directly from a smart phone.
