    My concern with this type of technology in areas like Detroit is theft and vandalism. I could see charging stations working in nicer metro areas but in and around Detroit those stations would have to be built like fortresses to last through the first night.

    ETEC did win an award to place charging stations in five different states. Michigan was not one of them. However, Coulomb Technology, another supplier of advanced networked electric charging stations, is in the process of getting a DOE grant to provide 5000 total chargers distributed among nine different regions across the US. The Coulomb regions are planned to be different from the five ETEC states. Southern Michigan is one of those regions, so if we get the grant, I would be interested in talking to you about your thoughts on optimal placement of the chargers for Southern Michigan. We have passed the technical hurdles for the grant and are in the contract negotiation stage. Coulomb is partnering on the grant with GM and Ford as opposed to ETEC who is partnering with Nissan. You can contact me at if you are interested in more information.

    Thanks for the comments Patrick and Scott! I am interested in learning more about Coulomb and its endeavors for the southern Michigan region.
