This move is aimed at providing a means for buyers of the 2011 Chevy Volt, a plug-in hybrid that is shipping from General Motors' Detroit-Hamtrack assembly plant, to charge up their rides while out and about.

SPX Corporation, Chevrolet's home charging system partner, will handle delivering and installing hundreds of the Level II ChargePoint systems at Chevy dealers throughout the country. The first install is scheduled to take place at a Chevy dealership in Irvine, CA.

Richard Lowenthal, chief executive officer of Coulomb Technologies, said that the deal was good for everyone involved – dealers, drivers and Coulomb:
