Showcased during the Plug-in 2011 Conference, Coulomb Technologies has revealed two of its latest additions to its ChargePoint networked charging station lineup. Both chargers – dual-port Level 2 models based on Coulomb's CT2020 – provide two 7.2-kilowatt ports and have been specifically designed for the North American market. With the CT2025, charging is delivered via two standard SAE J1772 connectors attached to self-retracting cords. The CT2021 (pictured) makes due without the win

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD), makers of some mighty fine computer processors, recently installed three Coulomb ChargePoint stations at its offices in the city of Austin, TX. Though no AMD employee at the Austin "Lone Star" complex currently drives a plug-in vehicle, several have expressed an interest in buying one soon. To entice its workers to consider a battery-powered ride, AMD has vowed to foot the bill associated with charging up any employee's plug-in vehicle.
Early last week, Coulomb Technologies unveiled its first installation of an electric-vehicle charging station in the Washington, D.C area. This unit, located at the Franklin D. Reeves Center in the northwest section of the city, is one of many that Coulomb plans to install in the nation's capital.
Sure, some cities across the U.S. have one or perhaps two plug-in vehicle chargers, but how
Madison Gas and Electric (MGE), a distributor of electricity to more than 138,000 customers, will install 18 additional Coulomb ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations to service electric vehicles (EVs) in and around the Dane County, WI area. Once installed, Dane County, home to more than 490,000 people, will have 24 operational charging stations.
Coulomb Technologies has installed its first ChargePoint networked electric vehicle charging station in Michigan under the $37-million ChargePoint America program. The charger, located at the NextEnergy headquarters in downtown Detroit, is the first of hundreds of free public and home charging stations that the ChargePoint America program will install in the state of Michigan. Installation was carried out by Coulomb distributor Shocking Solutions (now, that's a great name for an electric car cha
By October 2011, the ChargePoint America program, assisted by Coulomb Technologies, is expected to complete installation of 4,600 free public and home charging stations funded by a $15-million grant from the U.S. government. The chargers will appear in nine regions across the U.S.: Austin, TX, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, FL, Sacramento, CA, the San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area, Bellevue/Redmond, WA, and Washington D.C.
Coulomb Technologies opened its first public electric vehicle charging station in Manhattan this week as part of the ChargePoint America program. Under a Department of Energy-funded program, Coulomb and other charging station manufacturers are installing thousands of outlets in cities around the United States. The new Manhattan station has been installed in an Edison Properties parking garage – and it will have a valet to perform the charges.
