Blink Charging Co. is a major owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle charging equipment and services. It has recently announced the signing of the agreement. Under the agreement blink charging will provide 31 Blink IQ200 fast Level 2 charging stations in different locations throughout Chula Vista. This five-year agreement, which automatically renews, reaffirms the city’s commitment to providing reliable and accessible EV charging infrastructure in the community. Blink will manage and own the EV charging stations.
Chula Vista was one of the first to adopt EV charging technology, having installed Blink EV chargers back in 2012. As electric vehicle usage grows in the city, Blink makes servicing their EV chargers a priority and plans to bring more chargers online.
Coleen Wisniewski, Chula Vista’s Environmental Sustainability Manager, stated that providing EV charging to Chula Vista is an important step in supporting Chula Vista’s climate action goals to increase adoption of alternative fuel cars. Ensuring that existing EV chargers are able to properly function is crucial to our region as well as to reaching our state and local goals.
California’s goal to have 5 million zero-emission cars on the roads by 2030 is also supported by the EV charging infrastructure. California Governor recently issued an executive order directing the state to make all new passenger and car trucks sold in California zero-emission by 2035.
“We are pleased that Chula Vista is looking forward when it comes to future transportation. California is a leader in electric vehicle adoption and Chula Vista has an upgrade agreement to continue that trend. Chula Vista residents can feel confident that their city’s charging infrastructure will be able to support the future EVs,” said Brendan Jones, President at Blink Charging.
