TAMPA, FL - Car Charging Group, Inc, a nationwide provider of convenient electric vehicle (EV) charging services, announced today that through its partnership with Crescent Heights Management, one of the leading developers of residential communities in the United States, it will offer its EV charging services at The Slade, a multifamily residential complex located at 1190 East Washington in Tampa, Florida. CarCharging provides a complete turnkey solution for EV charging needs. The EV charging services at The Slade will be provided via a charging station manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, which is connected to the nationwide ChargePoint network.
"As a part of our continuing effort to provide our residents with the most environmentally friendly living, we have recently added an EV Charging Station to the main parking deck. Easily recognizable by its grass-like appearance and blue-lit wall station, it displays the Slade's image and our commitment to a better, more ecological world. With a growing number of residents driving Hybrid and EV vehicles, The Slade has joined the Tampa City Government and the 'AAA,' amongst others, to make driving a fuel-efficient EV car more practical. We are excited that we can offer this amenity to our residents," said Linda Darwish, Community Association Manager at The Slade.
"CarCharging is pleased to build upon its existing relationship with Crescent Heights by now providing its EV charging services at The Slade residence in Tampa," said Michael D. Farkas, Chief Executive Officer of CarCharging. "We look forward to future installations at additional properties which will make EV charging services more accessible for all of Crescent Heights' residents."
CarCharging installs EV charging stations, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power, in order to quickly refuel an electric vehicle's battery. The EV charging stations utilize the standard SAE J1772 connector widely adopted by nearly all automobile manufacturers. Once an EV driver registers and creates a CarCharging account, they will receive a very small RFID card that attaches to their keychain simplifying usage and payment of every intelligent CarCharging station. Users can pinpoint exact station locations using the CarCharging map at www.CarCharging.com . The ChargePoint mobile application also provides real-time charging station locations with turn-by-turn directions. In a forthcoming upgrade, drivers will soon be able to reserve a time slot, guaranteeing them access to the station to recharge their car.
CarCharging's RFID card also allows the driver to use other charging locations that are on the ChargePoint Network. Should an EV driver not have or own an RFID card, CarCharging also supports direct payment via credit card.
