Miami Beach, FL – Aug 5, 2021 – Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced a five-year agreement with two five-year extensions with Greenlight Communities, LLC, an Arizona-based residential property developer. After installations are completed, there will be a total of 58 Blink owned EV charging stations at Greenlight multifamily residential communities across the Phoenix metro area in Arizona.
The deployments are being aided by the SRP Business EV Charger Rebate, which offers businesses up to $1,500 per networked Level 2 EV charging station. SRP, or the Salt River Project, is the electrical utility provider for the Phoenix metro and surrounding area in Maricopa County, Arizona.

With many EV drivers choosing to charge at home, Greenlight Communities is leading by example in the multifamily residential sector by providing EV charging, an important amenity to the increasing number of EV drivers in its communities,” stated Brendan Jones, President of Blink. “With this agreement, which will bring Greenlight’s total IQ 200 chargers up to 58, Greenlight’s residents can feel confident about moving toward electric transportation alternatives. We’re pleased to help Greenlight Communities in supporting green transportation and providing their EV driving residents with the convenience of this premium amenity.”
“We are always looking for opportunities to provide the best options for our residents, the communities in which we build, and the environment. We are thrilled to do just that as we install Blink Charging’s IQ 200 chargers at our most recently completed community, Cabana Hayden in Scottsdale. We are excited to establish an EV infrastructure at all of Greenlight’s Cabana communities.” commented Robert Lyles, Partner and Co-Founder of Greenlight Communities.
Founded in 2018 and having completed its first three projects, Greenlight Communities is a real estate developer successfully building attainable rental housing in the Phoenix area. The most recent Blink deployments can be located at the recently completed Cabana Hayden property in Scottsdale. Three more complexes are currently under construction and will be the next to offer Blink’s IQ 200 EV charging stations.
Blink’s IQ 200 units are among the fastest level 2 AC charging stations available on the market, with a maximum output of 80 amps. The Blink IQ 200 chargers have been well received by leading EV industry experts.
