Texas City Renews RFID Charging Service Locations With Blink Charging

Blink Charging, an owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging station products and networked EV charging services, has announced that the city of Irving, Texas, has renewed its long-term, exclusive charging service locations through 2022. This renewal allows the city to continue offering EV drivers with access to 10 Blink Level 2 EV charging stations at the Irving Convention Center, the Irving City Hall and the West Irving Library. Additional units may be added in the future if demand increases.

To charge an EV at these locations, drivers can tap their RFID-based Blink InCard at a reader situated below each station's screen, initiate a session directly from the Blink Mobile app, use a guest code provided via the Blink Mobile app, visit BlinkCode.com or call Blink Customer Support (888-998-2546). EV drivers can become a Blink member for free and typically receive discounted charging fees at thousands of Blink units.

Blink Charging's EV charging equipment and networked EV charging services allow EV drivers to charge at thousands of locations throughout the United States. The company is headquartered in Florida, with offices in Arizona and California. Its Blink Network cloud-based software operates, maintains and tracks all EV charging stations connected to a network, along with associated charging data. The firm maintains strategic partnerships with airports, automotive dealerships, health-care and medical facilities, hotels, municipal locations, parks and recreation areas, parking lots, retailers and more.
