Walnut Creek Installs 3 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Coulomb Technologies has taken the initiative to install their ChargePoint™ Networked Charging Stations for electric vehicles in Walnut Creek, CA. Walnut Creek has got the distinction of becoming the third Bay Area city to deploy charging station. Coulomb’s charging stations were officially inaugurated on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at the Locust Street Garage. The charging stations were installed in three public parking garages in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek.
Why has Coulomb Technologies chosen Walnut Creek? Actually Walnut Creek is the hub of outdoor festivals, the performing arts scene and superb shopping and dining experience. That’s why this is supposed to be one of the top destinations in the Bay Area. Now the opening of the charging stations will enable the EV owners across the Bay Area to enjoy the outdoor activities without worrying about recharging their vehicles. So it goes without saying that EV owners are in considerable numbers in Bay Area and they are aware about clean and green technology. The consumer profile is quite lucrative for establishing recharging stations.
Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies, shares his views, “Progressive Bay Area cities are leading by example when it comes to EV infrastructure. Nowhere else in the world can drivers of electric vehicles travel from city to city and find charging stations. The infrastructure for EV’s is taking shape in the Bay Area. The cities of San Jose and San Francisco were the first installations for consumers and fleet owners and now with the addition of Walnut Creek to our network of charging stations, drivers can literally drive around the Bay Area and charge as they go.”
Coulomb Technologies can boast of a good record of establishing the charging stations for municipalities, utilities, green office buildings and parking garages. This make the life easy for EV owners. They can recharge their electric vehicles wherever they live, work and shop. What do the consumers have to do to avail such facilities? Consumers have to subscribe to the ChargePoint Network and they receive a ChargePoint Smart Card. ChargePoint Smart Card allows them to charge their car at any charging station worldwide.
