Powin wows EV suppliers with two new stations

Powin built two EV charging stations with the help of a Drive Oregon grant.
A Tualatin energy company has completed the two charging stations it promised in an arrangement with two Oregon electric vehicle supplier mainstays.
Powin Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Powin Corp. (OTC QB: PWON), completed the work on the quick charge stations with EV4 Oregon and Portland-based OpConnect. Oregon now counts more than 40 quick charge stations.
Drive Oregon kicked in $42,000 toward the project, which features a solar canopy and grid connection. The three companies said the project has created several clean energy jobs since launching in October.
Powin Corp. built the solar canopies at its Tualatin facility. Powin Energy's engineers worked with counterparts at EV4 and OpConnect to design the “fast charger” and software that communicates with vehicles' computer systems.
