CarCharging Partners with Parking Concepts to Offer Electric Vehicle Charging Services

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CCGI) (“CarCharging”), a nationwide provider of convenient electric vehicle (EV) charging services, announced a new partnership with Parking Concepts, Inc. (“Parking Concepts”), a parking garage operator that provides advanced parking solutions to more than 200 garages located in hospitals, stadiums, special events, offices and some of the busiest airports in the United States.

Through this partnership, CarCharging now provides EV charging services at One Concord Center, located at 2300 Clayton Road in Concord, California. The property is a 36,000 square foot, Class A office building at the intersection of Clayton Road and Park Street. It is strategically located adjacent to the Concord BART station, which provides transportation to Daly City and the San Francisco International Airport. The property has 869 parking spaces serving tenants and visitors, and the EV charging services are provided on the ground floor of the Tower Garage.

“As the electric car market continues to expand, especially in the Northern California area, we believe that it is also imperative to expand EV charging locations,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. “We are pleased that Parking Concepts supports these initiatives and joins other business leaders in increasing access to EV charging stations.”

“At Parking Concepts, we are committed to identifying opportunities that help our clients exceed their sustainability goals,” said Jeff Spicker, Manager of Business Development for Parking Concepts “Partnering with CarCharging and delivering EV charging stations to our clients provides the opportunity to enhance the amenities of their properties and deliver a valued service.”

The EV charging services provided at One Concord Center will utilize Level II EV charging stations, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an electric vehicle’s battery. EV drivers can easily request CarCharging’s evCharge card online, and attach the small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at these locations. CarCharging’s evCharge card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint(R) Network, the largest national cloud-based network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations. CarCharging’s EV charging stations also accept direct payment via credit card.
