Free Blink® Chargers to various places/people...
I got some emails this morning from ECOtality - makers of Blink brand EVSEs/network.
They all go something like this:
EV Project offers Free Blink® Chargers to EV Drivers and Commercial Host Sites in ChicagoI got offers for Philadelphia, Chicago, and Atlanta (and the respective surrounding areas). Anyone know anything more about this other than the marketing blurb above? I'm trying to decide if it's worth pursuing at the business level (at my office or a local establishments that I frequent). At home, this is uninteresting to me because I already have the Voltec. I may even consider sharing this with my local dealer as another incentive they can use for buyers.
SAN FRANCISCO and CHICAGO – Wednesday, August 1, 2012 – ECOtality, Inc. (NASDAQ:ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, announced today it will offer its Blink® smart charging stations free to residents and commercial host sites of the greater metropolitan Chicago area as part of its expansion of The EV Project, a public-private partnership with the Department of Energy.
