350Green and Coulomb Technologies announced they will extend the reach of both companies’ technologies and services. 350Green has agreed to purchase and install more than 400 charging stations across the country powered by the ChargePoint Network, further growing the largest network of independently-owned charging stations. 350Green will also utilize ChargePoint Network cloud-based EV charging solutions to manage its national network, including charging stations from its other manufacturer partners. ChargePoint Network is the largest online network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and drivers. 350Green is building out a national network of more than 1,000 charging stations, with projects under way in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, and California. The company is installing both Level 2 and DC Fast chargers in convenient locations through partnerships with retailers like Walgreens and real estate developers like Simon Property Group. As part of the ChargePoint Network, 350Green will be able to set up EV services, fees, track revenues, costs and utilization using rich analysis tools. Drivers will enjoy the advanced features and benefits of the ChargePoint Network including 24/7 driver support, driver billing options and mobile phone applications that provide drivers with real-time station location and availability, turn-by-turn navigation, and charging status. “This is a significant expansion of our ChargePoint Network as 350Green has chosen to exclusively utilize ChargePoint Network to deliver services to its customers,” said Pat Romano, president and CEO at Coulomb. “With ChargePoint Network, we can launch a fully developed, feature-rich solution for managing charging services and stations,” said Mariana Gerzanych, co-founder and CEO of 350Green. “This agreement will accelerate the development and launch of 350Green’s national network of charging stations and provide us and our location partners with user-oriented features and host-oriented information and data.”
