Car Charging Group Expands Electric Vehicle Charging Services Infrastructure in Florida

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB:CCGI), a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, today announced it has 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 Orlando.
EV drivers can now charge up at Sarasota Village, on Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota, as the EV charging services were added as part the center's redevelopment and opening of a new Publix grocery store. EV charging services are also now available at Pointe Orlando, located on International Drive across from the Orange County Convention Center. Car Charging Group is also working with Brixmor to offer convenient and accessible charging sites throughout the Brixmor portfolio. Charging will be free during an introductory time period.

"Brixmor Property Group is one of the leading real estate and property management companies in the U.S. and we are excited about partnering with the Company to provide their customers who drive EVs the added convenience of charging while they shop or work," said Michael D. Farkas, Chief Executive Officer of Car Charging Group, Inc. "For the majority of time, cars sit parked, so installing charging stations at shopping malls and retail outlets makes perfect sense. Additionally, Brixmor Property Group is supporting the promotion of the electric car market and a clean environment."

At both Brixmor properties, Car Charging Group is utilizing Level II, 240-volt, EV charging stations, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, the leading EV charging solutions company. Brixmor customers now have access to the ChargePoint Network, the largest network of independently owned charging stations in the world. Car Charging Group will provide flexible payment options, the ability to make reservations, and track customer usage patterns, energy use, costs and revenues, all via the ChargePoint Network's cloud-based software service plans for managing EV charging operations. Through the network, EV drivers benefit from ChargePoint mobile apps (iPhone, Blackberry and Android), mapping services and driver support services.

"We are pleased to bring the added convenience of EV charging stations to our centers for our customers and passers-by. Having the EV charging stations accessible, will allow our customers to recharge while they shop. This is a clean and green energy alternative, adding value to our centers and the retailers at our centers, as we cater to the EV transportation fueling options," said Timothy J. Bruce, Executive Vice President, Leasing and Redevelopment, Brixmor Property Group.
