I went to Exposition Park in LA today to see, US Energy Secretary Stephen Chu, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Coulomb Technologies founder and CTO Richard Lowenthal announce the 500th Electric Vehicle Charger installation.
Secretary Chu said 1800 Electric Vehicle Chargers had been installed so far under the Recovery Act. Coulomb Technologies, a northern California company received a $15million award under the Act. http://energy.gov/news/10331.htm
Each EV Charger installation generates local work for Electrical contractors and other Service Providers.
The Major also highlighted the $2,000 rebate for LA residents who wish to get an EV Charger installed in the LADWP service area.
