philly-green-housingCoulomb Technologies and Philadelphia are helping integrate electric car plug-in charging stations into green building projects.

Philadelphia is the latest city to receive a Coulomb Technologies ChargePoint station in an energy efficient housing project called Sheldon Crossing. The station is Pennsylvania’s first ChargePoint station.

The community is made up of 20 carriage homes, and was designed to achieve the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s (LEED) Platinum rating

Charging stations for electric vehicles should be at the top of nearly every LEED checklist. We are pleased the developers have taken a progressive approach in looking at green transportation and electric vehicles.

“Charging stations for electric vehicles should be at the top of nearly every LEED checklist. We are pleased the developers have taken a progressive approach in looking at green transportation and electric vehicles,” said Coulomb CEO Richard Lowenthal.

As part of the ChargePoint network, the Sheldon Crossing station comes with updates via phone and email when it is unoccupied, Smart Grid integration for utility load management and a free ChargePoint iPhone app.

“Sheldon Crossing represents the new wave of construction, one that allows homeowners to live a healthier life, save money, and build a greener future without giving up any of life’s luxuries,” said developer Denale, Inc. co-owner Alex Plesset.
