“JBG is committed to being a responsible community partner,” said Eileen Nacev, JBG’s Director of Sustainability. “We are dedicated to our role as a steward for sustainability, and partnering with ECOtality to provide drivers in the Washington region a network of Blink charging stations at JBG properties in Maryland, the District and Northern Virginia is the latest component in our Building Smart, Thinking Green program. We are pleased to help expand the availability of EV charging stations in the region.”
The Blink charging stations are located at a range of JBG commercial, office and residential locations, and offer Blink customers priority parking.
“By continuing to extend the Blink Network into our nation’s capital and throughout the country, we are sending a message that EV’s are here to stay,” said Greg Fioriti, Chief Revenue Officer at ECOtality. “Just like JBG’s portfolio encompasses a variety of retail and office spaces, we want our Blink charging stations to be ubiquitous at many public spaces, so this is truly an ideal partnership and we look forward to working together in the future.”
