"We see a clear connection between charging at home, at work, while shopping or on the road during a trip," continued Mr. Brar. "Having Blink HQ home charging products in EV drivers' homes, bundled with a membership, will help support our growth and generate an annuity base as the number of EV drivers grows."
Blink HQ continues the legacy of home charging solutions provided by the company. To date, Blink has installed over 8,300 residential chargers in 38 states.
The first new Blink HQ model will launch in early summer 2013 and reservations are now being accepted. For customers looking for the most feature-rich in-home charging solution, Blink still offers its classic wall mount unit as part of the HQ family.
The Blink HQ family of products includes a one-year parts and labor warranty, as well as a $100 membership credit to be used at any of Blink Network's over 4,000 publicly available charging stations. Qualified drivers are eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $1,000 on the purchase and installation of a residential charging station through the end of 2013 (learn more at https://www.blinknetwork.com/ev-infrastructure-tax-credits ).For more information on product availability and to sign up, visit http://www.blinknetwork.com/hq .
