Blink Charging Co, a leading owner and operator of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, and the City of Newton, Iowa, recently announced the installation of two Blink IQ 200 fast Level 2 charging stations in the city. The Blink-owned chargers were installed in the framework of a grant award from the state of Iowa and as part of the City of Newton’s drive to provide more accessible and reliable electric vehicle charging stations.

The installation of these chargers demonstrates Newton’s focus on increasing EV charging access to the greater community and illustrates Blink’s commitment to bringing accessible, efficient, and convenient EV charging to communities across the country and globe.

“As more electric vehicles make it onto our roads, EV charging equipment and services will be an added amenity that is expected in each and every community,” said Craig Armstrong, development specialist for the City of Newton. “The city is excited to offer our residents and visitors easy access to Blink EV charging stations in one of our city-owned parking lots in downtown Newton.”

“We are always excited to install our chargers in new markets and we’re especially pleased to assist the City of Newton as it makes EV charging publicly accessible to its residents and visitors,” said Brendan Jones, President of Blink Charging. “Our vision at Blink is to make EV charging convenient and accessible by making our chargers available in as many locations as possible to meet the demands of the ever-increasing population of EV drivers.”

Blink’s IQ 200 chargers are the fastest Level 2 AC charging stations available. Each IQ 200 produces 80 amps of output, translating to approximately 65 miles of charge in an hour. Operated on the Blink Network, they can charge any battery-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
