Blink Charging Collaborates with Moberly Motor Company and Electric Era to Bring Fast and Efficient DC Charging to Dealership

Posted 09/21/2023

Miami Beach, Fla., (September 21, 2023) - 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 an agreement with Moberly Motors, a leading auto dealership, and Electric Era, a designer and developer of AI-driven and storage backed EV fast charging stations. The agreement is for the deployment and installation of a PowerNode charging station with three 240kW chargers at Moberly Motor’s dealership location in Moberly, Mo. Founded by former SpaceX engineers, Electric Era’s PowerNode is a turnkey battery-backed EV fast charging station designed for the rapidly growing EV market. Powered by Electric Era’s real-time and AI-driven PowerNode-OS software, it predicts load, monitors utility bills, and manages power to create the highest performance and most economical charging station experience. PowerNode’s battery quickly discharges to support increased charging demand and to lower the power consumption from the grid. This results in a higher level of charging sessions per day at a lower cost. “Grid challenges and reliability are the dominant forces that prevent premium EV fast charging on every street corner in America. By selecting the PowerNode charging station, Moberly solved these challenges at its brand-new state-of-the-art facility in the heartland of America,” said Quincy Lee, CEO and Founder of Electric Era. Moberly plans to install three Blink 240kW DCFC chargers and six 50–100amp Blink Level 2 (L2) chargers on site, utilizing both AC and DC power to work within Electric Era’s PowerNode charging station. The new station is expected to be available to the public in November. “As the EV market expands and the demand for charging grows, it is important that the industry continues to innovate and build reliable and efficient means of energy to keep EVs charged and on the road,” said Jim Nemec, Chief Revenue Officer at Blink Charging. “We look forward to more collaborative efforts to deploy EV fast charging at car dealerships around the country that suffer from grid challenges and high electricity costs.” The agreement makes Moberly Motors the first dealership to deploy PowerNode's charging station using only 150kW of grid power and onsite energy storage to prevent grid upgrades, saving time and lowering electricity costs. Moberly Motors has also added fast charging to support its EV operations and to provide EV drivers in the community with a reliable source of EV fast charging. As a leading auto dealership, Moberly Motors understands the impact EVs are making in the market and plans to continue to provide EV charging solutions to meet driver needs, taking part in this growing segment of automotive sales. Located in North Central Missouri at the Highway Intersections of 24 & 63, Moberly Motors will be installing some of the fastest chargers in the area.  The dealership is one of the few out-of-state Ford and Chrysler dealerships that will be able to sell, service, and charge EVs.
