Eaton Corporation and Coulomb Technologies announced plans today to expand the North American footprint of charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs).
The partnership will connect Eaton’s quick-charging Level II and DC “Pow-R-Stations” to Coulomb’s ChargePoint® Network, which is the largest network of independently owned charging stations in the world with more than 4,500 charging locations in North America.
Coulomb Technologies unveiled its first electric charging station in the heart of Motor City today, heralding a planned network of hundreds of free electric car charging stations for southern Michigan.
Coulomb’s ChargePoint America stations, made possible through a $37 million grant from the American Recovery Act, will be installed in Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Detroit and smaller towns in the region. The stations will serve Ford, General Motors and smartUSA, all of which expect to be selling electric vehicles in Michigan within months.
