Coulomb Technologies announced that The Boeing Company, the world's leading aerospace company and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft, has installed Coulomb’s ChargePoint stations for electric vehicles (EV) on four campuses; Bellevue, Wash., Portland, Ore., El Segundo, Calif. and Mesa, Ariz. The charging stations are part of a pilot program sponsored by the Boeing Utilities Services & Conservation group to respond to employee requests for EV charging at work. 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 allows Boeing to track and collect data and also provide essential services such as financial transaction management. We are thrilled Boeing is welcoming electric vehicles to their workplace and installing the most innovative EV charging services product on the market today.”
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 is the largest and fastest-growing EV charging services network, whose independent station owners dispense more electric fuel than those on any other charging network in the world. ChargePoint Network also provides options for Boeing employees including 24/7 driver support, driver billing choices and mobile phone applications that provide drivers with real-time station location and availability, turn-by-turn navigation, and charging status.
