WALNUT CREEK, Calif. June 9, 2009 — Coulomb Technologies today announced that Walnut Creek, CA has become the third Bay Area city to deploy their ChargePoint™ Networked Charging Stations for electric vehicles. Coulomb's charging stations will be officially welcomed to the city in a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 11:30 am at the Locust Street Garage. The charging stations are installed in three public parking garages in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek.
Walnut Creek is considered one of the top destinations in the Bay Area, known for its outdoor festivals, performing arts scene and superb shopping and dining. EV owners across the Bay Area now have a premier place where they can recharge while enjoying downtown Walnut Creek.
"Progressive Bay Area cities are leading by example when it comes to EV infrastructure," said Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies. "Nowhere else in the world can drivers of electric vehicles travel from city to city and find charging stations. Infrastructure for EV's is taking shape in the Bay Area. The Cities of San José and San Francisco were the first installations for consumers and fleet owners and now with the addition of Walnut Creek to our network of charging stations, drivers can literally drive around the Bay Area and charge as they go."
Coulomb Technologies has 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.
