9/12/2012

MIAMI BEACH, FLA.—Fontainebleau Miami Beach and Car Charging Group, Inc., a nationwide provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, announce the availability of electric vehicle charging service on the 22 acre luxury oceanfront resort.

At Fontainebleau Miami Beach, CarCharging has installed a Level II, 240-volt EV charging station, manufactured by ChargePoint, which quickly refuels an EV’s battery. Visitors to the resort can easily request a CarCharging account online, and utilize and pay with a small keychain card. The RFID keychain card also provides access to charging locations on the ChargePoint Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to charging stations.

“Given that Miami Beach is the home of CarCharging’s corporate headquarters, it is gratifying to offer EV charging services to the local community,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. “We are thrilled to provide our EV charging services at Fontainebleau, one of Miami’s premier landmarks and resort destinations.”

“As part of the resort’s eco-initiatives and commitment to sustainability, Fontainebleau is pleased to support a greener and cleaner transportation lifestyle by providing the first car charging station in Miami Beach on our property,” said Phil Goldfarb, president and COO, Fontainebleau Miami Beach. “Fontainebleau has seen a growing number of customers utilizing EVs at our facility, and we want to provide guests, residents and visitors with the ability to recharge while visiting the resort.”

EV drivers can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the CarCharging map at http://www.CarCharging.com. The ChargePoint mobile application for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry phones also provides real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions.
