CAMPBELL, CA--October 14, 2011: Coulomb Technologies today announced is celebrating the 1st National Plug-In Day, October 16, 2011 by offering free ChargePass cards for electric vehicle (EV) drivers via ChargePoint® Network website. The free ChargePass cards are available Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16, 2011 only. EV drivers simply complete an online form to have a ChargePass card mailed to them directly. ChargePass cards are used by EV drivers to access the thousands of stations on ChargePoint Network, the largest online network of EV charging stations in the world.

“We are proud to support the celebration of National Plug In Day”

"We are proud to support the celebration of National Plug In Day," said Pat Romano, president and CEO at Coulomb. "With events in more than 20 cities nationwide, EV drivers know that not only are their EVs incredibly fuel efficient, they are some of the most innovative and fun cars to drive on the road today. Many of our station-owner customers are participating in weekend activities from Seattle to Orlando and at many charging spots in between. Thank you to event organizers including Plug In America for bringing this event to life."

Once an EV driver receives their free ChargePoint ChargePass card, they simply go online to create a ChargePass account, activate their ChargePass card, and begin using it at any station on ChargePoint Network. From their ChargePass account, EV drivers can set SMS and email alerts when their vehicle is completely charged or if a charging session is interrupted for any reason including GFCI fault or disconnected cable. With a ChargePass account drivers can adjust notification settings, reservation settings, edit account profile, or access billing and energy savings summaries.

Everyday EV drivers enjoy the advanced features and benefits of the ChargePoint Network including 24/7 driver support, driver billing options and mobile phone applications that provide drivers with real-time station location and availability, turn-by-turn navigation, and charging status.
