Blink Charging has deployed 44 Level 2 EV charging stations, 32 of which are already installed and fully operational, at The Elysian residential building in the Victor Heights neighbourhood near downtown Los Angeles.

Blink will provide its EV charging stations to The Elysian’s employees, residents, and visitors to support the city’s rapidly increasing number of electric vehicles.

“With this agreement, we continue to aggressively expand our network of stations throughout the state of California” said Blink COO, Brendan Jones. “We are honoured to be a part of The Elysian’s sustainability initiatives that are leading the way in adopting green living and promoting EV use by providing on-site charging options.

“With this addition of more charging stations, The Elysian is making EV use more accessible, which bolsters the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions caused by traditional gasoline-powered vehicles.”

For her part, VP of Operations for Linear City Development, Alexandra Leekley, added: “The lack of chargers in apartment buildings is one of the biggest obstacles to widespread electric car adoption.

“We have proven our paradigm makes sense in the marketplace and we are confident other developers will follow suit as we achieve price parity in the US. We want free EV charging to be seen as a standard amenity.”

The Elysian provides complimentary EV charging to its residents and guests.

“Our hope is every Elysian resident will opt for an electric or hybrid vehicle, and with a total of 53 charging stations, including three fast chargers, we will have the capacity to charge our entire community should they all decide to drive electric tomorrow,” noted Leekley.

Operating on the Blink Network, Blink’s charging stations are compatible with any fully-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. The charging units installed at The Elysian join the growing network of Blink EV charging stations.

They are operable using Blink’s mobile app, the Blink Charging website (www.blinkcharging.com) and Google or Apple Maps.
