MIAMI BEACH, FL -- Car Charging Group Inc., which provides electric vehicle charging services, said it is partnering with Federal Realty Investment Trust to install charging stations across Federal Realty's retail property in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and California.
"Besides the obvious environmental benefits, a big advantage of electric cars will be the ability to conveniently fuel your vehicle when you're already stopped somewhere on your daily routine," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of Car Charging Group. "Because of its prime locations across the nation, Federal Realty's unique retail and mixed use destinations serve as popular gathering places within the communities, making them perfect locations to top off your EV battery while you shop or dine."
During the first phase of the program, EV charging stations will be installed at the following Federal Realty Investment Trust properties:
-- Santana Row in San Jose, Calif.
-- Bethesda Row in Bethesda, Md.
-- Congressional Plaza and Rockville Town Square in Rockville Md.
-- Pentagon Row and The Village at Shirlington in Arlington, Va.
At these locations, Car Charging Group will install Level II, 240-volt, EV charging stations, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies.
"This is an exciting partnership as it further expands our nationwide EV charging network," said Brian Golomb, director of sales for Car Charging Group. "These are also high-profile properties, which will bring even further awareness to the importance of EVs in the evolving U.S. transportation system."
