Latin American energy provider deploying 500 EV charging stations

This week, Blink Charging Co. announced
that InterEnergy, an owner and operator of power generation, transmission and
distribution assets in Latin America, including the Dominican Republic where
its CEPM subsidiary provides energy solutions to more than 66% of the national
tourism sector, has enlisted Blink to bring EV charging infrastructure to the
Dominican Republic and Panama.

The initial purchase of 200
charging stations is a step toward InterEnergy’s total investment in the
deployment of 500 charging stations for electrical vehicles. The investment
includes Level 2 charging stations, DC Level 3 fast chargers, and networked
residential smart units for a total initial purchase of $1.2 million in hardware
from EV charging company Blink.

 “This is a significant step on InterEnergy’s
efforts to eliminate thousands of tons of CO2 emissions per year initially in
the Dominican Republic, which as an important tourist destination demands clean
energy generation, representing multiple benefits to the environment,” stated
Rolando Gonzalez Bunster, Chairman of InterEnergy.

Blink says that its Level 2
chargers are the fastest AC charging stations available, producing 80 amps of
output, and are best suited for commercial centers, shopping malls, workplaces
and multifamily residential dwellings. The DC Level 3 fast chargers can charge
more rapidly, producing 50 kW of power, making them reliable for roadside
charging where distance traveling is common, said the company.

“We are excited to work with a
pioneer in green-focused renewable energy, while providing their customers the
best equipment available. Bringing EV charging infrastructure to the Dominican
Republic is only the first step of our engagement with InterEnergy and we look
forward to future expansion in Panama City and further into the Caribbean and
South America,” said Blink Founder and CEO Michael D. Farkas. “As more
consumers are choosing to drive EVs, the need for charging infrastructure will
make it possible for countries across the globe to move towards full adoption
of EVs and a clean transportation future,” added Farkas.
