The first public electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Washington, D.C., was unveiled on November 16, 2010.

ChargePoint America

Installation under Coulomb Technologies' ChargePoint America program was supported in part by a $15 million DOE grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

500 EV Charging Stations in DC + 4,600 into 2012

The program will install more than 500 charging stations in the District of Columbia area as part of nationwide effort that will add 4,600 charging stations during the next two years. Noting that such advanced vehicle technologies are creating jobs and promoting the use of fuel-efficient cars in the United States, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu issued a statement saying, "the hundreds of electric vehicle charging stations coming to Washington, D.C. highlight the important role our nation's capital will have in the clean energy economy of the future."

Level II charging stations

Coulomb Technologies is now installing 240-v electric vehicle chargers for commercial and public use across the country.

These Level II charging stations in nine regions will support the deployment of 2,600 electric-drive vehicles, including vehicles by Ford, Chevrolet, and smart USA.

The nine pilot regions include

  • Austin, Texas
  • Detroit, Michigan
  • Los Angeles
  • New York
  • Orlando, Florida
  • Sacramento, California
  • San Jose and San Francisco Bay Area
  • Bellevue and Redmond, Washington area
  • Washington, D.C.

As the public begins to use these devices, DOE will collect data on travel patterns and about how drivers use their electric vehicles; where and when people charge their cars; and what impacts the chargers might have on the grid.
