Coulomb Technologies has announced six new cities that will have electric vehicle charging stations installed in their area. We first reported on the $37 million rollout program last summer, called ChargePoint America.
The cities unveiled include: Baltimore, Maryland, Tampa, Florida, Boston, Massachusetts, as well as Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Monterey, California. The charging stations work with vehicles from Ford, the Chevy Volt, and Smart Fortwo.
Part of the ChargePoint program was funded by a $15 million grant from the Department of Energy, and claims to be heading towards the goal of installing 4,600 stations by October of this year. Some stations will be public, and others will be private, however, owners can set the chargers to be “free” for other drivers, or set their own rate that changes on the date or time.
