Car Charging Group, Inc. wants to offer electricity services at a reduced rate.
Through its wholly owned subsidiary CCG Energy, LLC, CarCharging and Hudson Energy announced a sales partnership to provide electricity services. This partnership will allow CarCharging to be able to provide electricity services to its property partners through Hudson Energy, thereby greatly reducing their utility costs.
This sales partnership also enables CarCharging to provide renewable electricity opportunities to commercial and multi-tenant residential property owners through Hudson Energy at substantially lower rates than currently offered. Essentially, this electricity fill-up option allows EV drivers to operate their vehicles carbon-free.
"We are excited to have a sales partnership with CarCharging Group and provide customers with lower energy costs and the ability to drive their EV vehicles carbon-free," said Deborah Merril, president of Hudson Energy. "We are proud to offer our products and green energy programs to a growing community of environmentally responsible energy consumers who are taking action to reduce their environmental footprint."
The CarCharging/Hudson Energy sales partnership will also benefit EV drivers through decreased electricity costs generated from renewable sources. CarCharging will soon be offering its EV charging services with CO2-free generated electricity to recharge vehicles.
"Our sales partnership with Hudson Energy enables us to offer our customers a more robust set of energy services beyond electric vehicle charging," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. "CarCharging's mission is to lower EV charging fees and to accelerate electric vehicle usage throughout the country. This partnership benefits our commercial and multi-tenant property owners by reducing their facilities' operational costs. In these deregulated markets, public EV charging could soon approach the cost of charging an EV at home, which is substantially less than publicly or commercially-located locations."
