Ecotality will install 1,500 electric vehicle charging stations in the San Francisco Bay Area, including 20 fast charging stations. Coulomb Technologies, based in Campbell, Clipper Creek and Aerovironment will provide the remaining stations.

The bulk of the funding — $2.2 million — will fund $1200 rebates to electric vehicle owners who will install charging stations at their homes.

While typical home chargers can charge an electric car battery in six to eight hours, fast chargers can charge cars in less than 30 minutes.

The stations will be deployed across the Air District’s coverage area in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma Counties.

Ecotality Inc. (NASDAQ:ECTY), based in San Francisco, also won a $50,000 grant to manage the deployment project. Ecotality is also the project manager of the $230 million federal electric vehicle project, which aims to put 15,000 electric vehicle-charging stations for homes and businesses across the country that are estimated to support 8,300 electric vehicles. The project is funded by a $114.8 million grand from federal stimulus (or the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), matched by private financing.
