Boeing Installs Couloumb Technologies’ ChargePoint Stations on Four Campuses

 

Electric vehicles (EVs) require a proven, streamlined EV charging network to be considered a viable transportation option. Couloumb Technologies, a leading independent EV charging network company, has been doing its part to grow a practical charging infrastructure throughout the United States and around the world. It recently added The Boeing Company to its roster of leading companies taking advantage of its ChargePoint Network. Other companies and entities using the network include Dell, various municipalities like the City of New York, McDonald’s, and, of course, cleantech-lover Google.

Boeing ordered charging stations for four of its campuses, including Bellevue, Wash., Portland, Ore., El Segundo, Calif., and Mesa, Ariz., in answer to employee requests for EV charging while at work. The sale and installation of the chargers were completed by Couloumb’s distribution partner, Charge Northwest, and The Boeing Utilities Services and Conservation Group (the sponsor of the pilot program). Boeing will be tracking employee EV use through ChargePoint’s cloud-based “solutions” for managing EV charging services, and will collect and report environmental metrics. Hopefully, these data will be used to inform future EV charging station development and use.

According to Couloumb Technologies, 50% of EV drivers in the US hold a ChargePoint card, which is how drivers access energy on their network. The benefits of joining the ChargePoint Network include 24-hour driver support, a support website, and smart phone apps that provide drivers with real-time station availability, location, navigation, and charging states. The network can be accessed with several service plans.

Watch the (somewhat sales-y) video below to learn more about its network.

I'm a Floridian transplant enjoying the farm to table culture that's flourishing in northeast Ohio. I am dedicated to supporting local food networks- which means I like getting my hands deep in compost, and I love shopping at local farmer's markets in small towns or taking my business to the many wonderful, independent restaurants in Cleveland. My goal is to connect communities with local, sustainable products and all the fun, important, green events going on in their areas.
