Best Buy To Test Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

10/11/2010 04:03:15 PM Eastern

Los Angeles - Best Buy will begin testing charging stations for
electric vehicles at 12 stores this March.

The charging stations are being supplied by San Francisco-based
Ecotality under the Blink brand.

The pilot program, dubbed The EV [electric vehicle] Project, will
target Los Angeles and San Diego; Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; and Seattle, and
may be expanded to additional markets and stores results.

The retailer presently sells electric bikes, scooters and
motorcycles at 35 stores in six states and began testing battery-powered cars
last year.

"Best Buy has shown true leadership [in] becoming a launch
partner for The EV Project and exemplifies how corporate responsibility
initiatives can directly benefit the customer experience, environment and
society," said Jonathan Read, CEO of Ecotality.

The data gathered from the charging stations will provide insights
into consumer charging behavior and identify potential incentives for host
sites, Ecotality said.
