ChargePoint, Inc. Key Developments

ChargePoint and JNS Holdings Rescue Chicago EV Charging Program

ChargePoint and JNS Holdings Corporation announced one of the large electric vehicle charging installations in the Chicago area is up and running at full capacity. The contract was initially awarded by the City of Chicago to 350Green, LLC of California. 350Green allowed the system to fall in disrepair and ultimately abandoned it, leaving Chicago's EV owners limited access to functioning public charging stations. JNS, with prior approval from the City of Chicago agreed to acquire the charging stations from 350Green. JNS in conjunction with ChargePoint was able to bring over 115 stations back online to provide Chicago drivers access to public EV charging infrastructure. JNS is based locally and is experienced with all aspects of EV charging systems.

BMW of North America, Volkswagen of America and ChargePoint to Construct Stations Along from San Diego to Portland on the West Coast and Boston to Washington on the East Coast

BMW of North America, Volkswagen of America and ChargePoint Inc. will construct up to 100 charging stations in "express charging corridors" from San Diego to Portland on the West Coast and Boston to Washington on the East Coast. Construction has already started on the Western corridor, where a string of new charging stations will allow vehicles to travel the length of California and into Oregon. As many as 100 stations will be up and running by the end of 2015. Each station will include one or two 50-kilowatt DC Fast chargers or 24-kilowatt DC Combo Fast chargers, developed by BMW in partnership with Bosch. Those chargers -- typically used for BMW and VW vehicles, as well as the Chevy Spark EV -- can bring a vehicle up to 80% power in less than 30 minutes. Each station will also include some Level 2 chargers, which require up to four hours to fully charge a car. The Level 2 chargers can power up vehicles including the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and the plug-in version of a Toyota Prius. The goal is to serve all models of electric cars.
