Mayor Bloomberg Unveils NYC's First Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station at an Edison ParkFast Location
Starting July 14th, New Yorkers can plug in their electric vehicles at an Edison ParkFast Location
New York, New York (PRWEB) July 14, 2010 - Mayor Bloomberg unveiled Coulomb Technologies' first public ChargePoint electric vehicle charging station today at the Edison ParkFast parking lot at 451 Ninth Avenue. This charging station is first on New York City's installation schedule of over 100 ChargePoint® stations throughout the five boroughs. The development, installation and maintenance of these ChargePoint® stations will create hundreds of jobs in New York City and provide the foundation for adoption of electric vehicles.
Coulomb Technologies' $37 million ChargePoint® America program provides electric vehicle charging infrastructure to nine regions across the United States. Coulomb Technologies is funded by grants from the Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission. Major automobile makers, Ford, Chevrolet and Smart USA, have announced plans to introduce electric vehicles in New York in the following months. Edison ParkFast will be charging electric vehicles for free for the next thirty days.
