ChargePoint Unveils 1st of 80-Plus NY Charging Stations

ChargePoint Inc. announced the first of more than 80 electric vehicle charging stations it will install in New York, through a $1 million incentive from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

The project’s first EV charging station is  at Battery Park City’s Solaire residential development, developed in 2003 by the Albanese Organization as the nation’s first LEED Gold-certified residential building. Albanese developments the Verdesian and the Vanguard Chelsea will also receive charging stations.

In other electric vehicle news, Car Charging Group Inc., is planning to purchase EV Pass LLC, which specializes in building destination and location networks for EV charging, and its Central New York Destination Location Network, from Synapse Sustainability Trust. Deployed in partnership with NYSERDA, the CNY Network was the first area-wide transportation plan in the United States to be based on the concept of providing charging services “where the car wants to go, not where it lives,” CCG says.

Last year, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced $4.4 million for 10 EV companies, municipalities and other entities, including ChargePoint, to bring 325 charging stations to New York. Earlier this year, Gov. Cuomo announced Charge New York, a new initiative to promote EVs through investing $50 million over five years. The program calls for investment in 3,000 public and workplace charging stations by 2018, plus other steps meant to encourage the growth of electric vehicle ownership.

ChargePoint says it is the largest network of EV charging stations in the world, with more than 11,000 charging spots installed. According to a report released by Pike Research in January, ChargePoint and DBT are the market leaders in electric vehicle charging. In January, the two companies announced plans to offer joint stations.

Earlier this month ChargePoint and Ecotality formed a new company, Collaboratev, that aims to enable charging network interoperability, exchange session data and allow financial billing reconciliation services among EV charging networks.

ChargePoint announced its entry into the Atlanta market in February with the installation of six networked EV charging stations around that city’s metro area.

  1. While I think electric vehicle charging stations may help electric vehicle adoption, I still think another major roadblock (no pun intended) is the price of the vehicles… the basic model of the Tesla sedan is $52,400 after a tax credit. More “affordable” versions, like the Nissan Leaf, can still near $30,000 after tax credits, depending on the region. However, lithium battery prices are expected to drop over the next 4-5 years, so perhaps affordable pricing and a sizable, reliable charging network will intersect in the near future.

  2. These planned NYC stations are useless, they will all be located in parking garages in Manhattan and at $3/hr to charge plus $25-50 to park, only the desperate will use them. Until they understand how to make the right decisions that appeal to the everyday EV / PHEV driver, true industry growth will take a long time.
