Car Charging Group enhances electric car charging services in California

By Greentech Lead Team: Car Charging Group, a provider of
electric vehicle (EV) charging services, has partnered with Ace Parking
Management, a parking management company, to expand its EV charging network in
Northern California. The partnership offers EV charging services at four new
Ace facilities in the San Francisco Bay area.

Ownership of the EV charging stations will remain with
CCGI, but Ace will share in the proceeds generated by the charging services
provided at their properties.

“We believe that expanding our EV charging services
in California is a necessity as the number of EV drivers continues to increase
in the state. We are pleased to have a partner like Ace that supports green
transportation initiatives,” said Michael D. Farkas, chief executive
officer of Car Charging Group.

Car Charging Group has
installed Coulomb Technologies’ Level II, 240-volt, EV charging stations. The
EV charging stations (EVSE) have SAE J1772TM connectors, the North American
standard for all vehicles on the road, and the stations are part of the
ChargePoint(R) Network, the largest network of independently owned charging
stations in the world.

ChargePoint Network’s cloud-based software service plans
for managing EV charging operations enables Car Charging Group to offer
charging services to EV drivers, including flexible payment options, the
ability to make reservations, and tracking of customer usage patterns, energy
use, costs and revenues.

Through the network, EV drivers benefit from ChargePoint
mobile apps (iPhone, Blackberry and Android), mapping services and driver
support services.

“We have already installed several charging stations
in our headquarters city of San Diego, as well as at select facilities in
Houston and Phoenix and have more installations planned. We encourage other
businesses to support electric-powered transportation which benefits both the
environment and economy,” said Matt Griesheimer, Vice President of Ace Parking Management.

Car Charging Group recently expanded its
EV charging infrastructure in Florida. EV charging services are now available
at two of Brixmor Property Group’s shopping malls located in Sarasota and
