Coulomb Technologies announced Tuesday that the City of Hillsboro is its first Oregon customer to install its advanced Level II chargers for electric vehicles.
The 13 charging stations are a part of Hillsboro's "green" Intermodal Transit Facility, which features 252 SolarWorld solar panels, the region's first bicycle commuter station by Mobis, low-energy LED lighting and the use of pervious concrete to minimize the effects of stormwater runoff. The solar panels are expected to generate almost as much power as the building consumes.
The Level II chargers provide for fast charging. The chargers are also part of Campbell, Calif.-based Coulomb's ChargePoint Network, which offers smart phone applications, technical support and credit card payments. Hillsboro first signed on as a Coulomb customer last year with the purchase of 16 charging stations.
The Intermodal Transit Facility is located between S.E. 7th Avenue and S.E. 8th Avenue in Hillsboro. The building was designed by LRS Architects and was built by Skanska USA. The project received Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It is a joint project of the City of Hillsboro, Pacific University and Tuality Healthcare.
