Allegiant Stadium will be outfitted with Blink Chargers accessible to employees, visitors, and the general public.
Miami Beach, Fla., (Feb. 6, 2024) – Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer, owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced it has been named as the official EV charging provider for Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, providing much-needed reliable EV charging solutions for drivers.
As demand and popularity for electric vehicles surge, the installation of Blink’s chargers across Allegiant Stadium stands poised to empower both fans and employees, offering them the convenience of charging their EVs. These chargers, operational 24/7, will provide EV owners with the flexibility to utilize Allegiant Stadium’s charging facilities at any time. Whether attending a major game, shopping at the Raider Image, enjoying a concert, participating in an event at the stadium, or simply passing by and in need of a quick charge, users can access these amenities seamlessly.
“Allegiant Stadium and the Las Vegas Raiders are at the forefront of sustainability, and we’re proud to be chosen as the official charging provider for the stadium,” said Mike Battaglia, Chief Operations Officer at Blink Charging. “Through this collaboration, Blink’s leading EV infrastructure will now be relied upon by those attending some of the biggest sporting and entertainment events in the world, advancing the shift to electrification.”
“We are excited to welcome Blink Charging as the Official EV Charging Provider of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium,” said Raiders Vice President of Stadium Operations Christopher Sotiropulos. “Our organization’s record on sustainability and renewable energy speaks for itself, and we feel more than confident putting our trust in Blink’s know-how and expertise to provide fans and guests a seamless EV charging experience when visiting Allegiant Stadium. This will be yet another step in further enriching our top-tier guest experience.
Following two significant sustainability-related announcements earlier this year, this agreement marks yet another stride towards environmental stewardship at Allegiant Stadium. In July, the stadium proudly unveiled its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a prestigious international recognition denoting excellence in the green building practices. This distinction places Allegiant Stadium among the elite seven professional football stadiums to achieve such an honor. Moreover, in October, the stadium reaffirmed its commitment to sustainability by becoming the inaugural professional football stadium powered entirely by renewable energy.
Blink will equip Allegiant Stadium with its powerful Series 8 charging station, a Level 2 80-amp charger offering flexibility and convenient built-in features. Specifically crafted for commercial use, this station is an impeccable fit for stadium environments. Designed with user convenience in mind, the Series 8 charging station allows drivers to seamlessly make payments using credit cards or digital wallets, eliminating the necessity for memberships, RFID cards, or mobile apps. Its compact form, coupled with multiple mounting options, ensures effortless installation while integrating to the Blink Network. This makes the Blink’s Series 8 an optimal charging solution for various commercial settings that require a physical credit card reader. Furthermore, housed within a NEMA 3R outdoor-rated enclosure, this charging station offers flexibility for indoor or outdoor installations. Equipped with a standard 18-foot charging cable, (or the optional 25-foot upgrade) the Series 8 effortlessly reaches around any vehicle, ensuring accessibility and ease for all users.
