InterEnergy Selects Blink To Charge Up Panama, Dominican Republic
Blink Charging lands a $1.2 million contract.
Blink Charging and InterEnergy agreed to a $1.2 million deal, in which Blink will provide EV charging equipment to be installed in the Dominican Republic and Panama.
InterEnergy is an owner and operator of power generation, transmission and distribution assets in Latin America and provides energy solutions for more than 66% of the tourism sector in the Dominican Republic.
“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 Charging recently introduced its next generation of charging equipment, the Blink IQ200 80-amp level 2 charging station. We’ve recently acquired one of those units and have been using it for a few weeks now. Look for a full review here soon.
According to the deal, InterEnergy will purchase 500 charging stations from Blink Charging, including level 2 EVSE and 50 kW DC fast chargers. Blink has been paid approximately 30% of the total deal, with the balance payable once the equipment is delivered. That is expected to occur before the end of the first quarter of 2020.
“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 Mr. Farkas.
We’re happy to hear Blink Charging has landed what seems to be a big contract for them. Blink has been pretty quiet for a while now, and hopefully, this news is just the start of more good news for the EV charging network.
