Alongside Oregon elected officials and electric vehicle (EV) advocates, ECOtality, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, today celebrated the Company’s first Blink ® Direct Current (DC) Fast Charge installation at the Hollywood Fred Meyer store in Portland, Oregon. The UL-listed Blink DC Fast Charger provides the fastest EV charging rates currently available and can charge a Nissan LEAF to 80 percent capacity in under 30 minutes.

“The Blink DC Fast Charger provides electric vehicle owners a faster and more convenient method to charge and is critical to extending the driving range of EVs,” said Don Karner, President, ECOtality North America. “This installation at the Hollywood Fred Meyer in Oregon marks the start of the Blink DC Fast Charger rollout, as we begin deploying these stations over the upcoming months in EV Project markets. ECOtality is excited to partner with local stakeholders in this first step toward the full electrification of the nation’s transportation network with this advanced charging technology.”

“With a third of all oil burned in cars, electric vehicles will play a key role in breaking America’s addiction to oil and giving us back control over our own economy,” said U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley. “Today’s installment of a fast charging station at the Hollywood Fred Meyer is a step in the right direction to get more electric cars on the road. I’m thrilled that Oregon is a leader in electric vehicles and I look forward to helping more Oregonians say ‘goodbye’ to gas stations.”

The Blink DC Fast Charger is rated at 60 kW (200-450 VDC, up to 200A) and provides a quick and safe method of charging EVs. Ideally suited for high-traffic commercial locations and major transportation corridors, the dual-port charger features two CHAdeMo compliant EV charging connectors and provides an intuitive connector dock for storage and protection. The charger features two interactive touch screens and a 42” color display for media and messaging. With real time communication capabilities, the Blink DC Fast Charger features an internal energy meter, which supports energy usage data evaluation.
