Coulomb ChargePoint at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Event

The Barrett-Jackson Car Auction in Scottsdale is these days witnessing the presentation of the new Coulomb Technologies ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations, presented by Green Fuel Technologies. The ChargePoint, which will hit the market later this year, are at the event to catch the eye of retail venues, restaurants, malls, parking structures and municipal buildings in the metro-Phoenix area.

"As the newest electric vehicle models emerge this year, we want to educate consumers on how this technology works," John Casey, CEO of Green Fuel Technologies said in a release. "Ease of use and a robust infrastructure will provide options when considering a transition to EV or Plug in hybrid in the future."

"We provide integrated alternative energy solutions for all aspects of your life," Casey added. "Whether it's the vehicle you drive or electricity that powers your business or home, we help consumers take control of their energy costs and consumption."

Meanwhile, Coulomb set up their first charging station in Washington state, part of plan to set up over 20 such points. The ChargePoint is located in a The Markets supermarket.

Later this year, Coulomb and Aker Wade Power Technologies will deploy Level III networked fast charging stations on a global level.

Level III will offer a charging time of under one hour. It is operated through Coulomb's ChargePoint Network and comes with services like integrated billing system, Smart Grid integration tools and remote station management. Level III works thanks to an off-board charger that converts AC to DC, using a 480 Volt, three-phase electric service and will be available starting the third quarter of 2010.
