Blink to provide expanded charging infrastructure and support a more sustainable future for the City.
Miami Beach, Fla., (October 17, 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 it has secured a contract as an official EV charging provider for the City of Miami Beach. The agreement sets the stage for Blink Charging and the City of Miami Beach to electrify city fleets and provide charging solutions for employees, residents, and visitors.
As part of the seven-year agreement, Blink will offer the City its advanced Series 7 and Series 8 chargers. These Level 2 EV chargers are multi-vehicle, ENERGY STAR certified and ADA-compliant charging stations with the option to be installed in both wall-mounted and pedestal-mounted configurations, making them an ideal solution for the City. The Blink Level 2 (L2) Series 7 charging stations are intended for charging the City’s fleet, allowing for two vehicles to charge simultaneously. The L2 Series 8 chargers are designed for commercial applications, where drivers can conveniently pay with credit or a digital wallet. Blink will operate, maintain, and manage the EV charging stations for the City’s parking facilities, garages, and surface lots.
“The City of Miami Beach and Blink are focused on leading the electrification of transportation together,” said Brendan Jones, President and CEO of Blink Charging. “As we set our sights on providing holistic, targeted charging options for EV drivers throughout Miami and the world, we’ll continue to lay the groundwork for an electric revolution. It’s very rewarding to have a direct role in reducing emissions and improving convenience in Miami Beach. We are grateful for the City’s trust and our shared vision.”
Blink will support the City’s mission in addressing environmental concerns related to climate change. In the past two months, Blink has reached similar agreements with the State of Utah and the Tennessee Valley Authority. These agreements followed the announcement of Blink’s strongest financial quarter in history.
“The City of Miami Beach has established a very ambitious goal of converting hundreds of city vehicles to hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles in the near future,” explained City of Miami Beach Manager Alina T. Hudak. “We are pleased to continue working with Blink, who not only shares our goals for green energy, but is also a local company that contributes to the Miami Beach economy.”
