USA: 350Green plans EV charging network for apartment dwellers, Jimmy McMillan


Network Will Make EV Ownership Possible for Residents Who Don’t Have Home Garage Charging, and More Convenient for Those Who Do

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire – February 1, 2011) – 350Green (www.350green.com), announced its plans today for a national network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Starting with its first project in the San Francisco Bay Area, the company plans to install and operate stations across urban retail shopping centers and other places near where EV drivers live and work. This approach aims to address two of the most vexing challenges facing widespread adoption of EVs: range anxiety and access to a garage for overnight charging.

“Most of the early focus around EV infrastructure has been on putting charging stations in the home garages of customers, which is great if you have a garage. But since many residents in cities don’t have access to a garage, this effectively limits the number of people who can participate in the EV revolution,” said Mariana Gerzanych, 350Green’s founder and CEO. “Because our public charging stations with fast chargers will be widely and conveniently located near where residents live and work, EV ownership will suddenly become an option for all, regardless of whether they have access to charging in a personal garage.”

The Bay Area project is funded in part by a grant from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) as part of its “Spare the Air” program, which also aims to make owning an electric vehicle in the Bay Area a viable option for residents.
