CarCharging Partners With Federal Realty to Offer EV Charging Stations at Premier Retail Locations in Maryland and Virginia
MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - August 16, 2012) - Car Charging Group, Inc. (
"With a growing number of our residents and visitors now driving EVs, we wanted to provide EV charging services to give them the convenience of recharging while at work or shopping at these mixed-use Maryland and Virginia properties," said Michael Kelleher, Vice President of Asset Management for Federal Realty. "Working with CarCharging to provide these services, we are very pleased to offer our residents and customers a shared amenity and a convenient location to recharge their EVs on our property."
"CarCharging continues to extend the footprint of our EV charging services throughout the Northeast and across the country, to support growing sales of electric vehicles and increased consumer demand for publicly accessible EV charging services," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. "CarCharging is committed to delivering convenient EV charging services to provide all EV drivers with easy access to our services."
CarCharging's services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly refuel an electric vehicle's battery. EV drivers can easily register and create a CarCharging account online, and attach a small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station. The CarCharging RFID card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint® Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations. CarCharging also accepts direct payment via credit card.
Users can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the CarCharging map at http://www.CarCharging.com/. The ChargePoint® mobile application for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry phones also provides real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions. Drivers will soon be able to reserve a time slot, guaranteeing access to EV charging stations to recharge their electric vehicle.
