Miami Beach-based Blink Charging (NASDAQ: BLNK) has earned Energy Star certification for its 80-amp network-connected charging stations. Business owners deploying these chargers will be eligible for Energy Star-related government grants and tax incentives.
The Energy Star certification, which so far only a handful of the hundreds of charging stations on the market have earned, is awarded by the EPA following independent testing in an EPA-recognized laboratory. Energy Star-certified chargers use 40% less energy in standby mode, on average, than non-certified models.
“Bringing to market decreased EV charging time utilizing energy-efficient and sustainable hardware is what we have envisioned for a long time,” said Blink’s founder and Executive Chairman Michael D. Farkas. “Our team works relentlessly to deploy state of the art EV charging technology to properties and cities worldwide, and we are proud to be among the first to earn Energy Star certification with our 80 A network-connected chargers.”
