Coulomb ChargePoint Arrives in Honolulu

The second EV charging point for EVs in Honolulu has been installed by Coulomb Technologies with the help of Green Energy Outlet (GEO). The charging station is installed at 575 Cooke Street in Kailua and completes the wind-turbine station located on Maui.

“In addition to being one of the most beautiful places in the world, Hawaii has the natural resources to make alternative fueling options commonplace,” Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies said in a release. “Not only are these forward thinking businesses installing charging stations for electric vehicles, but they are innovatively using sun and wind to power them.”

The charging point will be available for all owners of plug-in vehicles and provides authentication, management, and real-time control for the networked electric vehicle charging stations through multiple web-based portals for Hosts, Fleet managers, Drivers, and Utilities. The features of the charging points include:

  • charging status by SMS text or email notification
  • location of unoccupied charging stations via smart phones
  • authenticated access to eliminate energy theft
  • authorized energizing for safety
  • Smart Grid integration for utility load management with future V2G capabilities

“I see the new GEO as more than a business,” Frank Rogers, owner of GEO. “It is a place where the people who are interested in sustainability for our future can come together and fuel up in a relaxed, friendly environment to see new products, share ideas, learn from each other.”
