Electric vehicle charging through pay pass – enabled Mastercard

Electric vehicle (EV) charging at select locations would be possible now with the Tap&Go© facility available at the ChargePoint©, a Network charging station which has been unveiled in San Francisco. Coulomb Technologies, the leaders in the infrastructure of charging stations for EV’s have unveiled this facility. This facility would accept the MasterCard PayPass contactless payments. EV vehicle owners from the Bay Area would be able to pay and park their vehicles, and charge quickly and easily by merely tapping the PayPass-enabled MasterCard on their card reader, that is specially designed and has been developed by Uniform Industrial Corporation.

The unveiling of this first installation would take place at the press conference on the 16th of November at 12:00 p.m., at Pier 27, San Francisco. It would be presented by Mayor, San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, and San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Bevan Dufty, David Chui, and CEO of Coulomb Technologies, Richard Lowenthal. Also presenting would be Priority Parking President Aaron Zeff, Kathleen Reilly, VP, Sr. Business Leader US Emerging Payments, and MasterCard.

The CEO of Coulomb Technologies was quoted as saying that they were committed to the EV drivers, and hence, were supporting MasterCard PayPass in order to increase the flexibility for EV users and allow them easy accessibility to park and charge their vehicles at their convenience. San Francisco seems to be leading the way since 2008 when it first installed the ChargePoint station, and it now again in the news for the first installation of the PayPass contactless system.

More than 800 ChargePoint stations have been shipped across the world by Coulomb Technologies, and there have been installations in at least 14 Bay Areas including San Jose, San Francisco, as well as Walnut Creek. These locations have become epicenters of EV users. With the introduction of MasterCard PayPass, vehicle owners as well as the ones who rent out these EV’s, will be able to make use of the facility to make quick payments at these stations.

With the introduction of this facility, MasterCard has contributed greatly to the green movement in the transportation sector. Aaron Zeff, Priority Parking Owner, has added that they are pleased to make this facility available to EV users by using the PayPass card. He went on to state that these charging stations were a Priority GreenPark initiative and it was just the beginning of other facilities to come.

This network would be essential, as Volt and Fortwo is gaining entry into the market.
