MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB:CCGID) and King Airport Parking, LLC have completed the installation of the first electric vehicle charging station in the Jacksonville, Fla. region, at King Airport Parking's Jacksonville International Airport location at 1771 Airport Road. Travelers wishing to charge their electric vehicles now have access to Level II, 240 volt ChargePoint® Networked Charging Stations, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies.

"The ultimate success of electric vehicles will rely upon making the charging process easy and convenient for consumers," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of Car Charging Group. "The King Airport Installation is part of Car Charging Group's aggressive national rollout of charging stations designed to serve drivers of the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt, among the many others models slated to hit the roads soon."

Car Charging provides EV charging stations at no charge to property owners/managers while retaining ownership, thus allowing drivers access to convenient locations and landowner partners to realize a percentage of the charging revenue generated. The 7.2 kW output delivers Level II (208/240 V @ 30 A) charging via the standard SAE J1772™ connector and fixed 18-foot cable. The 2 kW output delivers Level I (120 V @ 16 A) charging via a standard NEMA 5-20 receptacle protected behind a locking door. Both outputs can deliver energy simultaneously.

"This charging station is part of the developing smart grid, which uses the latest in communications and technology to offer travelers using Jacksonville Airport an integrated and remotely operable option to ensure their cars are charged upon their return," said Alex Sivar of King Airport Parking. "Our networked parking space is certain to become a popular spot for travelers utilizing Jacksonville International Airport because they will have the ability to start and stop a charging session directly from an iPhone or Blackberry smart phone or iPod Touch to ensure their vehicle is ready to go when they are."
