Mass production of Ecotality's Blink Level 2 charging stations recently began at Roush Manufacturing.

Mass manufacture of Ecotality's Blink Level 2 charging stations has begun at Roush Manufacturing. ECOtality partnered with Roush in July to manufacture the company’s flagship Blink home and commercial charging stations. This marked a major move for Roush into the electric vehicle industry with an existing Roush automotive facility in Michigan being modified to now support the developing EV industry. The Blink charging stations form the centerpiece of the rich charging infrastructure network Ecotality is deploying as part of the U.S. Department of Energy-backed EV Project. Recently, the Blink chargers received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listing, and production immediately started. The home charging stations offer several advantages over conventional charging stations, including advanced energy monitoring capabilities that allow homeowners to optimize their energy usage and charge their vehicles when rates are lowest.
