About ChargePoint America
ChargePoint America will provide 4,600 public and private ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations by October 2011. Coulomb Technologies, Inc. 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.
For more program information visit www.chargepointamerica.com. ChargePoint America is a $37 million program that is made possible by a $15 million grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Transportation Electrification Initiative administered by the Department of Energy. They also have a $3.3 million grant from the California Energy Commission to cover installation costs.
