GREENVILLE, SC - February 24, 2011 - – ScanSource, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC}, the leading international value-added distributor of specialty technology products, has partnered with Greenville-based Thurso Power Systems, LLC, a provider of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS or EVSE), to install a ChargePoint® Networked Charging Station at its Greenville headquarters. The charging station will enable ScanSource employees, vendors and customers who currently drive, or are considering driving, electric vehicles (EV) to have convenient access to a state-of-the-art charging infrastructure, while also promoting the benefits of environmentally friendly vehicles. The charging station will also be available to the general public free of charge.

Last year, ScanSource created ScanSource360, a comprehensive program designed to create a culture of environmental responsibility throughout its offices worldwide. The program includes a corporate-wide recycling program, an organic garden benefitting Harvest Hope, as well as many other waste reduction and recycling efforts. The installation of the charging station is one more way for ScanSource to promote environmental awareness and enhance its corporate green initiative.

ScanSource, Inc. CEO Mike Baur has been a strong proponent of clean electric powered transportation and a long-time owner of an EV. “As electric vehicles gain prevalence, the need for charging stations in convenient locations becomes a necessity. And by installing the charging station at ScanSource, we hope to continue to promote the benefits of utilizing clean air technology in transportation and other areas, while also delivering an added convenience to our EV driving employees and customers,” said Baur.

Thurso Power provides easy-to-use charging stations that offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance, while delivering an ergonomic, sturdy design. The stations offer convenience and reliability EV drivers need, while also providing the ability to track and report the benefits associated with EV charging. The ScanSource ChargePoint® station is distributed by NovaCharge, LLC and manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, a leader in EV Charging stations. The station is network enabled, allowing users to check station availability online, while providing remote management and 24/7 monitoring of the station usage.

Brian Edens is the President of Thurso Power Systems and also a conservationist and avid outdoorsman. “Thurso Power Systems is delighted to have been selected as the solution provider for EV Charging Infrastructure for ScanSource. As electric vehicles become more available, it is critical to develop an alternate charging infrastructure to reduce ‘range anxiety’ for early adopters. In addition, ScanSource and Thurso share a commitment to supporting the country’s domestic energy independence efforts. Hopefully other businesses will join us in this effort,” said Edens.

ScanSource joins the growing list of companies who have installed charging stations located in South Carolina. To access the status of the ScanSource charging station, please visit:
