They will be used to power up employee-owned electric vehicles, as well as the company’s GFleet EVs and electric hybrids. GFleet is Google's car sharing program for employes. The fleet so far includes Chevrolet Volts and Nissan LEAFs. Google plans for 250 more charging stations on its campus, according to a press statement from Coulomb today. Its goal is to make 5 percent of Google campus parking EV-ready. The project represents the largest workplace charging installation for electric vehicles in the country, Coulomb claims. The chargers will also be managed by Coulomb via their ChargePoint Network.
