Electric cars can’t provide environmentally-friendly alternatives for drivers without a place to charge them, and that is where Coulomb Technologies comes in. The company has designed outlets that can be attached to streetlights, known as “Smartlet stations” which will cost between $1,000-$2,000 each for cities and businesses to install. San Jose, California is the first U.S. city to offer electric-car charging.
The best thing about Coulomb charging stations is that people and governments alike are beginning to invest in installing the technology in anticipation of demand from future electric vehicles. One of the major challenges of switching from fossil fuel based vehicles to electric vehicles has always been the lack of infrastructure in place to allow for widespread use of electric vehicles. The company sold over $3 million worth of the units in July, 2009 and have seen their use spread to more than 20 U.S. cities. The greatest aspect of Coulomb charging stations, therefore, is the confidence being instilled in consumers by their presence in the efforts to switch to electric vehicles.
