Coulomb Technologies, a leader in electric vehicle charging station infrastructure, today announced that the City of Anaheim (Calif.,) has installed their first ChargePoint® Networked Charging Station for Electric Vehicles (EVs). The charging station is located in the parking structure of the Anaheim West Tower at 201 S. Anaheim Blvd., which is the location of the main office of Anaheim Public Utilities. The city is currently using the Coulomb unit to recharge two city-owned converted plug-in Toyota Prius’. Coulomb’s distributor Clean Fuel Connection was responsible for the sale and will provide maintenance of the charging station. In addition to the City-owned fleet, the ChargePoint station is available for public use.
Coulomb Technologies today announced support for the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) decision that companies that sell electric vehicle charging services to the public will not be regulated as “public utilities.” Coulomb Technologies, a maker of networked infrastructure for electric vehicles participated in the proceeding. Coulomb argued that by treating a charging station as competitive access to the grid as opposed to being a regulated utility, the Commission can foster competition in the nascent infrastructure marketplace and help facilitate rapid deployment.
