SACRAMENTO, CA - Coulomb Technologies announced the installation of its ChargePoint networked electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Sacramento, as a part of the $37 million ChargePoint America program.

Sacramento's first Coulomb ChargePoint station was installed at Harv's Car Wash (1901 L Street) in Midtown Sacramento. The installation was performed by Coulomb distributor Clean Fuel Connection.

In the greater metro Sacramento area, Coulomb's ChargePoint America program will offer hundreds of free EV charging stations for public and home charging to individuals and businesses.

"My vision is to make Sacramento the Emerald Valley -- the greenest region in the country and the hub of green technology," said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. "A networked infrastructure that supports electric vehicles is essential to this vision. Not only will these ChargePoint stations achieve this goal but they will provide employment to this region for the installation. I'd like to commend Priority Parking for their commitment to being green, and thank them for helping to bring the ChargePoint America program to Sacramento." 

"Sacramento is where standards for air quality, transportation and infrastructure are set not only for California, but for the nation," said Richard Lowenthal CEO of Coulomb Technologies. "It is only fitting that Sacramento will be a model EV-ready city as major automakers introduce exciting new electric vehicles."

Coulomb's ChargePoint America program will ultimately provide 4,600 charging stations in nine regions in the United States: Austin, Texas; Detroit; Los Angeles; New York; Orlando, Fla.; Sacramento, Calif.; the San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area; Bellevue/Redmond, Wash.; and Washington D.C.

ChargePoint America is a strategic partnership between Coulomb and three leading automobile brands: Ford, Chevrolet and smart USA. Coulomb Installation of the ChargePoint charging stations is underway now in all nine regions. 

The ChargePoint Network is open to all drivers of plug-in vehicles and all manufacturers of plug-in vehicle charging stations.
