Ecotality filed for bankrupcy and intent to sell all assets

Thu Oct 03, 2013 3:10 pm

Just a notice from Ecotality that they intend to default on their warranty positions and sell all their assets.

I had an open service / warranty ticket so I got a copy of the filing.

Some of it is here.

Crap!

Looks like I'm buying my own replacement cable and J1772.

I guess this is now a timely topic:

To get mine, they would have to go to court, get a judgement, (I maintain I have performed under my portion of the contract), Find my EVSE, Pay somebody to come out and remove it, which I would make as difficult as possible...... and then what would they have?

A used POS Giant Blink that needs a new Cord.

I'm going to assume it's mine :ugeek:

Who would want it besides me? I'm going to guess that they have little value to anyone else unless the buyer intends to stand-up the company and continue operating it.

If you got to http://www.kccllc.net/ecotality/documen ... 0000000002" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and search for your address, you should find your L2 unit listed, along with its book value. Mine is on the list, even though title was transferred to me on January 1. I have the signed documentation, so my mistaken inclusion on the list doesn't bother me. The residential contracts that we signed are still in effect, so title will transfer on the expiration date, or earlier, if ETEC or its successor refuse to honor the warranty provisions. Schedule B29 is a very long list of all the Blink L2 and DCFC units. I wouldn't worry about somebody coming for your charging unit.

mine is listed at $162. i wonder if the differences relate to the residual value, ie how long they have been in our hands. the ones at my workplace are each $681, and they were installed about a year or more later.

I guess I must have missed the date. Am I correct to say that you contacted Ecotality, and asked them to sign a "release"?

I know my original contract with Ecotality already expired, and I was very careful not to sign any of the "new contracts" they have been asking me to sign. Nevertheless, my address is also on the list!

Yep, it would cost more than $159 to come and retrieve it! Mine is listed too, BTW...

It makes me smile when looking at the list and seeing all the book value they have assigned to those assets (especially the DC FC)...That makes the company appear to be so valuable!!! I wonder if the auction bids will be influenced by this list? Hope not....
