I checked out Collaboratev's website for the first time. It's very concise, but it does an excellent job of presenting the dream as a reality. My favorite part....on the facts page we read the following:
"When will Collaboratev begin operating?
ChargePoint and ECOtality will connect their respective EV charging networks to Collaboratev in early 2014. Additional EV charging network operators are encouraged to join, and we will announce these additional affiliates as they come on board."
2014 will be an interesting year, indeed. It will be interesting to see what other charging networks choose to join in. This company, if executed properly, could be the deciding factor in if a charging company succeeds or not. If it becomes that big, this could potentially be a serious revenue stream for both ChargePoint and Ecotality.
