Once widespread charging station installation work will go on in San Diego at its cut back rate. Blink Network LLC got a one year contract extension on the maintenace and operations work. The contract approved by teh city council Tuesday ends on December 31st, 2014.

Both the city and Blink decide the installations Blink will do the work on the station operations.

ECOtality, after succesful installations at Balboa Park, De Anza Cove, and the Central Library, can not build up the installation location structure in the city at the rate planned in 2009 when the program was federally funded using Recovery Act funds. The DOE stopped paying the federal investment money earlier in 2013.

San Diego does not pay the electricity costs for keeping the station operations going. The cost for charging cars that stop at the stations regularly gets paid by ECOtality.
