Car Charging Group, Inc., through its partnership with the City of Miami Beach, is now providing EV charging services at the City’s parking garage located at 1301 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Fla.
The EV stations are accessible to up to four parking spaces and represent the first municipal EV charging services open to the public in Miami-Dade County.
To celebrate the installation of the EV charging stations, a ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 9:30 am on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at the 13th Street parking garage. The Mayor of Miami Beach, Matti Herrera Bower, and CEO of CarCharging, Michael D. Farkas, will both be in attendance.
“In addition to making improvements to parking, transportation and mobility, alternative transportation programs are part of Miami Beach’s sustainable initiatives,” said City of Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower. “Offering CarCharging’s EV charging services to its residents and visitors demonstrates this commitment, and we are excited to expand our alternative fuel programs.”
CarCharging’s services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by ChargePoint, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly refuel an electric vehicle’s battery. EV drivers can easily request a CarCharging account online, and attach a small RFID card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station. The CarCharging RFID card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations. CarCharging stations also accept direct payment via credit card.
