ECOtality Inc. says it has been awarded a $2.87 million contract from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District) to become the project manager of the organization's Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Deployment Program. Through this program, ECOtality will oversee the installation of 2,750 home charging stations and 30 direct-current fast-charging stations throughout the Bay Area.
Through a $2.2 million grant from the Air District, ECOtality will provide an EVSE Home Charger Rebate Program to install 1,500 Blink Home Chargers at Bay Area residences. ECOtality will also implement a DC Fast Charger Program, which will allow the company to install 20 Blink DC Fast Chargers.
Qualifying Bay Area residents will be able to receive a Blink Home Charging Station, as well as the DC Fast Charge inlet option, on the Nissan LEAF free of charge. They can also receive a credit of up to $1,200 toward the installation of the charger by participating in The EV Project.
