ABM IND : The Linc Group Installs First Electric Vehicle Charging Stations for Laguna Beach Climate Protection Initiative

06/22/2011 | 09:20am US/Eastern

The Linc Group, an ABM Industries (NYSE:ABM) company, has installed the first electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in downtown Laguna Beach, California, an important element in the City's wider effort to implement an array of climate protection measures. The EV charging stations are part of the ChargePoint America Program administered by the Department Of Energy, which provided a grant for the EV station equipment.

The EV charging stations were officially unveiled at a June 21 press event conducted by the Laguna Beach City Council. Representatives from The Linc Group attended the event.

The new charging stations will provide free charging services of up to four hours per electric vehicle per day. The stations managed by the ChargePoint® Network are accessible to all EV drivers by making a call to the 24/7 number posted on each station, signing up for a ChargePass? smart card or paying by credit card.

The new stations are open to all drivers of plug-in electric vehicles. In addition to providing free charging for electric vehicles, the stations will also enable drivers to check the real-time status and location of unoccupied charging stations and track and report greenhouse gas and gasoline savings. Drivers can receive charging status notifications by SMS, email or smart phone (iPhone and Blackberry) applications.

The EV charging stations were manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, Inc.

"We are proud to be a part of this sustainability initiative in partnership with the City of Laguna Beach," said Ken Sapp, vice president of Linc EnergyHub. "The Linc Group is strongly committed to providing superior, sustainable services to all of our clients across all of our service areas - including IT, electrical, lighting, controls and HVAC. We also are pleased to have the opportunity to work once again with Coulomb Technologies to help deliver leading sustainability solutions."
