CarCharging and Ace Parking Expand Existing Electric Vehicle Charging Services at Orrick Building and Add Services to Two Additional Properties in San Francisco

Electric Car Charging and Parking Management Firms Expand EV Charging in Largest Market for Electric Vehicle Sales

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CCGI) ("CarCharging"), a nationwide owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, announced that through its partnership with Ace Parking, the company has expanded the availability of its existing EV charging services at the Orrick Building, and added new EV charging services at 333 Market Street and 1776 Sacramento Ave in San Francisco, California. The EV charging stations are conveniently located in parking garages managed by Ace Parking.

Located in San Francisco's South Financial district at 405 Howard Street, the Orrick Building is a 10-story, 503,576-square-foot office building. The building is one of the landmark buildings in Foundry Square and was the second office tower in downtown San Francisco to have received platinum level certification from the United States Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environment Design. The Orrick Building provides easy access to the freeway and is convenient to public transportation, as well as numerous restaurants, hotels, and banks. CarCharging originally deployed EV charging services in the building's 142 parking space garage in 2012.  Over the past year, the demand for the services has continued to expand and the station has been consistently occupied, which demonstrates the need for public charging infrastructure. The EV charging services are located on Level P1 near the elevator.

Also located in San Francisco's financial district, the parking garage at 333 Market Street, between Fremont and Beal, is home to a class-A office building.  The 657,000 square foot building consists of 33 floors and 142 parking spaces.  The building is fully leased to Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., and features tenants such as Starbucks, American Greetings, and Bryan Cave.

1776 Sacramento Street is a contemporary condominium property in the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.  The property is near the Polk Street corridor and provides access to Bank of America and Staples.

"Given that San Francisco is the top ranking metro area for electric car sales, it is imperative that we support EV drivers in the area with convenient locations to charge their vehicles," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. "We are fortunate to work with property owners and management firms, such as Ace Parking, that support our efforts and allow us to support the demand for EV charging."

"Ace Parking prides itself in providing exceptional services to our property clients and customers, and by partnering with CarCharging, we are able to expand our services to EV drivers," said Matt Griesheimer, Ace Parking's Executive Vice President.

The EV charging services at these locations are provided by Level II EV charging stations, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an electric vehicle's battery. The 1776 Sacramento Ave offers equipment manufactured by SemaConnect, while the Orrick Building and 333 Market Street offer equipment manufactured by ChargePoint. To initiate use and payment at 1776 Sacramento Ave, EV drivers can utilize CarCharging's new mobile app or request a SemaCharge Pass card online at www.carcharging.com. For the Orrick Building and 333 Market Street locations, drivers can request CarCharging's evCharge card online at www.carcharging.com. CarCharging's Level II EV charging stations also accept direct payment via credit card.

Users can pinpoint these EV charging services on the CarCharging mobile app, as well as additional EV charging station locations using the maps at www.CarCharging.com and www.BlinkNetwork.com.
