Coulomb ChargePoint Installed in Anaheim

The push to become the largest charging solutions provider for EVs in the US is intensifying, with more and more charging points being installed by specialized companies in more locations across the US. The latest move was made by Coulomb, who announced it has begun installing its ChargePoint Networked Charging Station in Anaheim California.

The first charge point in the city will be used to recharge two city-owned converted plug-in Toyota Prius vehicles. More such units are expected to follow.

“The City of Anaheim, like many U.S. locations, had legacy non-networked charging stations installed in the 1990’s,”
Richard Lowenthal, Coulomb Technologies CEO said in a release.

“These existing stations are throughout the city in employee parking lots, police department, train stations, and their fleet yard, and the City has a plan to replace these old stations with new networked charging stations.”

Coulomb has partnered earlier this year with American manufacturer Ford to kick off the ChargePoint America program, an endeavor meant to install charging stations in nine regions of the US. The $37 million program will support the installation of 1,000 charging points starting later this year, with a further 4,000 to follow.

Last week, Coulomb announced an agreement with Leviton, Siemens and Aker Wade for the further development of the ChargePoint Network. Leviton will be installing them in the US and Canada, Siemens in the US, Canada and Europe and Aker Wade worldwide.

The network will be available to all drivers of plug-in and electric vehicle and provide several advantages like charging status by SMS or email notification, location of unoccupied charging stations and Smart Grid integration.
