USA: Car Charging Group Commences Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Services at Comfort Suites Hotel in Palm Bay, Florida

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Jan. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB:CCGI), the leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, and the Comfort Suites hotel located at 1175 Malabar Rd NE, in Palm Bay, Fla., today announced that hotel guests and travelers driving EVs will now have the convenience of easily re-charging in the Palm Bay area.

“Our partner in this project, Comfort Suites, owned and operated by Laxmi, Inc. of Palm Bay, is a forward-thinking hotel operator that is focused not only on providing its guests with superior amenities but also supporting green initiatives. Hotel operators across the country are experiencing an increasing demand from their guests for EV charging services,” said Michael D. Farkas, Chief Executive Officer of Car Charging Group, Inc. “Partnering with hotel operators like Laxmi is crucial to establishing a nationwide EV charging infrastructure and we look forward to expanding our relationship with additional EV charging stations at additional properties.”

Car Charging Group utilizes Level II, 240-volt, EV charging stations, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, the leading EV charging solutions company. Comfort Suites guests now have access to the ChargePoint® Network, the largest global online network connecting EV drivers to unoccupied charging stations. Car Charging Group will provide flexible payment options, the ability to make reservations, and tracking of customer usage patterns, energy use, costs and revenues, all via the ChargePoint Network’s cloud-based software service plans for managing EV charging operations. Through the network, EV drivers benefit from ChargePoint mobile apps (iPhone, Blackberry and Android), mapping services and driver support services. Laxmi will also be able to offer EV charging services at its Comfort Suites hotel at no cost to the Company while sharing in the revenue generated.

“Even though the installation has been recently completed, guest reception to the EV charging has been very positive,” said Neil Patel, General Manager of Comfort Suites, Palm Bay. “Not only have EV drivers been charging up, we have received favorable feedback from other guests who applaud our support of a greener environment.”
