Coulomb Technologies has installed a ChargePoint Networked charging station for electric vehicles (EVs) in Wooden Cross Lutheran, a church in Woodinville, Washington under Coulomb’s $37m ChargePoint America program.

Installation of the Wooden Cross Lutheran charging station, which will provide CT2100 (dual Level I and II) charging for the electric vehicles, has been done by Coulomb’s distributor Charge Northwest.

Coulomb’s ChargePoint America will offer thousands of free EV charging stations for public and home charging to individuals and businesses with Ford, Chevrolet and smart USA joining Coulomb in this program plan to introduce their respective EVs in Washington in the coming months.

The company plans to provide nearly 5,000 charging stations to the program participants in nine regions in the US, which include Austin, Texas, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Florida, Sacramento, California, Bellevue/Redmond and Washington DC.

All drivers of plug-in vehicles can have access to the ChargePoint network by making a toll free call to the 24/7 number on each charging station or signing up without a subscription via contactless credit cards.

ChargePoint Network provides information on the charging status by SMS text or email notification, location of unoccupied charging stations via smart phones and includes smart grid integration with built in utility grade metering, time of use pricing and demand response control.

Wooden Cross pastor Woody Carlson said that the church is excited to be part of this as driving EVs is a great way to better care for the planet and that is important to Wooden Cross Lutheran.
