Washington, DC (December 1, 2008) - Extending the future of sustainable transportation, Coulomb Technologies today announced they have expanded their reseller program to 28 US states. Resellers throughout the United States are tapped with building the infrastructure rollout for extended range electric vehicles (EREV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and all battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The wide range of infrastructure products are designed to support electric vehicles from automobile manufacturers including General Motors, Toyota, Ford, Mercedes, BMW and Nissan. Coulomb products include networked public chargers in a wide range of powers and sizes that serve both high-end utility and consumer needs. Coulomb will be showcasing their networked charging stations at the EDTA conference December 2 - 4, 2008 at the Washington, DC Convention Center booth 810.
"We are pleased that our distributors will be marketing and installing our infrastructure in more than half of the United States," said Richard Lowenthal, chief executive officer at Coulomb Technologies. "The time has come to pave the way for a new generation of vehicles that significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable US drivers to have a significantly lower cost fuel."
Coulomb Technologies sells, installs, and services the Smartlet™ Networked Charging Station product line through exclusive Regional Distributors. Regional Distributors are responsible for identifying host parking property owners within their respective regions to ensure that plug-in vehicles will have charging infrastructure in public access areas. The Regional Distributor is authorized to engage with second tier resellers, installers, and maintenance companies to ensure coverage of their entire region. Companies that are interested in being resellers, installers, or maintenance organizations should contact the Distributor in their area. These include:
"We are seeing a great demand for EV infrastructure from government agencies, municipalities and corporations," said Enid Joffe of Zero Emission Solutions.
