ChargePoint America sees its name in lights with the New York charging station unveiling this morning! The station is located at Edison ParkFast, 451 9th Avenue in Manhattan. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Coulomb CEO Richard Lowenthal, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and Edison Properties Chairman Jerry Gottesman battled the rain but made it on time to attend this exciting event.
Mayor Bloomberg spoke at the celebration:“To meet the ambitious goals in PlaNYC, our long-term sustainability agenda, we will have to reduce transportation emissions by taking mass transit, walking or riding a bike, and increasing the use of alternative-fuel and electric vehicles,” he said. “Coulomb Technologies and the ChargePoint America program will help us support a new type of vehicle on City streets so we can reduce pollution and emissions in the most efficient way.”
New Yorkers will keep noticing this new A-lister charging station as The City of New York continues to install stations under the $37 million ChargePoint America program.
Look for more media coverage about this event throughout New York — the rain couldn’t keep these reporters from getting the top story today!
