If you happen to reside in Los Angeles, Sacramento or along the stretch of road that extends between San Francisco and San Jose, California, then you're in luck and boy are we envious of you. Coulomb Technologies has announced that it received a grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to install 1,600 of its CharegPoint Networked home and public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the aforementioned areas.
The installation of these charging stations is being funded by a relatively small $3.4 million grant from the CEC. The charging stations will help the State of California conduct research on EV charging habits and other aspects of EV usage. Though initially installed for research purposes, these 1,600 chargers will likely remain in place long after the study is completed, thus providing selected areas of California with way more chargers than any other region of the U.S. and giving the state the edge in the drive towards a zero-emissions future.
