Blink Charging’s numerous corporate and government partnerships are based on our reputation for providing the best quality electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), design services, and turnkey business models. The second quarter of 2023 was our strongest quarter ever with a 186% increase in total revenues, and a 211% increase in service revenues over the second quarter of 2022. This growing success is in part thanks to state governments and other major institutions trusting us as their EVSE partner of choice. Here’s what you need to know about some of the state contracts that include Blink Charging as a verified vendor.
Which States Have Verified Blink as a Vendor?
When it comes to fulfilling EVSE requirements, state governments trust Blink to deliver and install their EV charging equipment. We have been certified as EVSE vendors and designated as official suppliers for governments and related agencies in the following states:
The State of Colorado awarded Blink Contract 176608 for the purchase of electric vehicle charging stations by the state government from 2022 to 2024. When any government-run agency in Colorado wishes to purchase EVSE, it will be from us, their designated supplier.
The State of Maryland government awarded Contract 001B2600353 to Blink for the statewide purchase of electric vehicle charging stations and equipment for governmental purposes from 2022 to 2025. Similar to Colorado, when any government agency in Maryland wants to buy EVSE, it will be from Blink, their trusted electrification partner.
Blink was chosen by the Utah Division of Purchasing for Contract AR4038 to supply EVSE for government, non-profit, K-12, and higher education agencies in Utah.
As part of this newly signed agreement, the Salt Lake City International Airport has already purchased and installed 10 Blink Series 7, 48-amp Level 2 chargers.
Blink’s Chief Operating Officer Mike Battaglia said this about the importance of the Utah contract: “Being recognized as a trusted supplier by the State of Utah is an important step for Blink, making our products more accessible to public agencies in building their EV infrastructure, as demonstrated at Salt Lake City International Airport.”
The agreement between Blink and the Government of Utah provides the state government with options to purchase the aforementioned Series 7, as well as the Blink Series 8, and Blink’s line of Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFCs).
In addition to having agreements with state governments, Blink also has a contract with Sourcewell, a cooperative purchasing agency that helps governments, nonprofits, and educational facilities procure goods and services by banding together for bulk purchasing.

The Blink Advantage
More and more state governments and institutions, along with a growing number of businesses, are choosing to partner with Blink due to many factors including our equipment, Buy America products, and full turnkey solutions.
Blink is proud to be the only US vertically integrated EV charging company that manufactures and sells charging equipment while also owning and operating chargers connected to the Blink Network. To continually help our customers with a wide variety of options, we are committed to providing industry-leading equipment like the Blink Series 8 EV charging station with a credit card reader and the upcoming Series 9 30kW DC fast charging station.
