Town of Bay Harbor Islands Upgrades EV Charging Capability with Help of Blink Charging
Blink Second Generation, 80 Amp, Level 2 AC Charging Station Deployed to Reduce Customer Charge Times
Miami Beach, Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink Charging”), a leading owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging station products and networked EV charging services, announced today that the Town of Bay Harbor Islands, Florida has replaced its legacy EV charger with Blink’s next generation IQ200 charging station to reduce customer charging times. At the time of this replacement, the Town of Bay Harbor Islands had 60 amps available for the charging station even though the Blink IQ200 is capable of a full 80 amps of capacity. When the town increases the available current for the unit, it will be a simple over-the-air update to the Blink IQ200 charging station to enable full speed charging. Also, with rapidly increasing EV adoption, the need for additional charging will grow in the Town of Bay Harbor Islands and Blink has the exclusive rights to fulfill all the charging needs for the town.
Blink’s industry-leading next generation IQ200 station provides up to 80Amps, or approximately 20kW, allowing drivers to charge their vehicles up to three times faster than on older generation, competing products, which typically charge at 30Amps or 7kW. Blink’s next generation suite of charging stations also provides ideal solutions for any deployment configuration, from traditional stand-alone units to a modern kiosk option for higher density, multiple unit installations. Blink’s Charging Station in the Town of Bay Harbor Islands is available to the public allowing all residents and visitors to get the charge they need as fast as possible.
“This is yet another example of the value we bring with our next generation IQ200 charging stations. EV Drivers are demanding that the chargers where they park charge faster than the legacy units now available in many locations,” said Michael D. Farkas, Founder and CEO of Blink Charging. “We are pleased to partner with the Town of Bay Harbor Islands and add this location to our portfolio of properties where Blink is able to provide best-in-class level 2 AC charging to the public,” he concluded.
