Car Charging Group, Inc., a nationwide provider of convenient electric vehicle (EV) charging services, now provides EV charging services at The MITRE Corporation’s campuses in Bedford, Mass., and McLean, Va.
MITRE is a not-for-profit organization that operates federally funded research and development centers.
“We are delighted to offer MITRE employees on-site, electric vehicle charging services,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. “MITRE and its employees are working together to help reduce their impact on the environment, and we are honored to support their efforts.”
“MITRE is committed to being a good environmental steward,” said Ray Leavitt, director of Corporate Real Estate at MITRE. “We look for ways to help support environmentally friendly practices on our campuses.”
CarCharging’s services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by ChargePoint®, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an EV’s battery. EV drivers can easily request a CarCharging card online to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station. The CarCharging card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint® Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations.
Users can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the CarCharging map at www.CarCharging.com. The ChargePoint® mobile application for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry phones also provides real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions. Drivers will soon be able to reserve a time slot, guaranteeing access to EV charging stations to recharge their electric vehicle.
