Coulomb Technologies Provides Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles in San Francisco

February 19, 2009

Coulomb Technologies, a leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, announced Feb. 18 the city of San Francisco has installed its Smartlet™ Networked Charging Stations at city hall. The charging stations are a part of a two-year public demonstration conducted with the city of San Francisco—a pilot project to power San Francisco's plug-in fleet and car-share plug-in vehicles. Unveiling of the charging stations came in a press conference with Mayor Gavin Newsom and Coulomb CEO Richard Lowenthal announcing the city's Green Vehicle Showcase outside city hall, and is part of the Bay Area's regional EV initiative.

Coulomb's charging stations are part of a smart networked charging infrastructure, called the ChargePoint Network, that addresses needs of electric vehicle drivers, utilities, municipalities, and parking space owners. The city of San Francisco's charging stations have new technology that supports clean fleets like those owned by the city. The "Fleet Management Portal" includes such features as interactive charts that summarize gasoline saved and greenhouse gases saved, displays of which vehicles are charging, which vehicles are fully charged, and which vehicles are overdue for charging. The Fleet Management Portal also includes smartphone text messaging that alerts EV drivers when cars need charging, when they are fully charged, and when charging is interrupted.
