CAMPBELL, CA – The Boeing Company, a leading aerospace company and manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft, has installed Coulomb Technologies’ ChargePoint stations for electric vehicles on campuses in Washington, Oregon, California, and Arizona.
The charging stations, part of a pilot program sponsored by the Boeing Utilities Services & Conservation group to respond to employee requests for EV charging at work, were installed on four campuses: Bellevue, Wash.; Portland, Ore.; El Segundo, Calif.; and Mesa, Ariz.
The system allows Boeing to track employee EV use and collect and report associated environmental metrics. The stations are a part of Coulomb's ChargePoint Network, the largest network of independently owned charging stations in the world. The sale and installation of the stations was completed by Coulomb's distribution partner, Charge Northwest.
"Boeing's pilot program required the most advanced EV charging networking capabilities to meet their mandatory specifications," said Pat Romano, president and CEO at Coulomb. "ChargePoint cloud-based solutions for managing electric vehicle charging services allow Boeing to track and collect data and also provide essential services, such as financial transaction management."
Boeing's stations have access to all the functionality of ChargePoint Network and ChargePoint service plans, including a centralized management infrastructure to set up charging services like automated billing and transaction payment processing. ChargePoint Network also provides options for Boeing employees including 24/7 driver support, driver billing choices, and mobile phone applications that provide real-time station location and availability, turn-by-turn navigation, and charging status.
