LAS VEGAS, June 1, 2009 — EV-Charge America today announced that the Rampart Casino / Resort is the first resort worldwide to install networked charging stations for electric vehicles. ChargePoint™ Networked Charging Stations are sold through EV Charge-America, a Coulomb Technologies' distributer serving Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. The charging station is located at the resort valet parking area and customers are now able to refuel their vehicles unattended while they are in the Casino / Resort for any period of time.
California-based Coulomb Technologies developed the charging stations for municipalities, utilities, green office buildings and parking garages to allow consumers to charge their electric vehicles wherever they live, work and shop. Consumers subscribe to the ChargePoint Network and receive a ChargePoint Smart Card that allows them to charge their car at any charging station worldwide.

The installation of this initial charging station is the first of many steps Rampart is taking to reduce emissions and waste. The Rampart Casino and Resort Team, in conjunction with EV-Charge America are demonstrating true environmental responsibility through this innovative initiative," said Bob Rosinski, CEO of EV-Charge America.
