The EV Project, which is now in seven states, began in August 2009 and is aimed at developing the infrastructure to support the electric-car market, while also gathering data on how electric cars are being used and recharged.
Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt-owning residents and commercial hosts in these cities, who sign up to ECOtality’s EV Project, get a free Blink wall-mount charger valued at $1,500 and a $400 installation credit.
Residents and commercial hosts interested in participating in the EV Project can sign up at http://www.theevproject.com/sign-up.php.
ECOtality received $115 million in U.S. Department of Energy grants in 2009 and 2010. The grants finance about half the EV Project’s cost.
