"As an EV driver living in a downtown community, we know that
convenient and accessible EV charging services can be difficult to
find," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. "In order to
ensure that these services are more readily available, we are proud
to partner with Echelon at K Station to provide EV charging services
to its residents." 
"At Echelon at K Station, we aim to provide our residents with the

CarCharging's services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by
ChargePoint(R), 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 card online, and attach this
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(R)
Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to
EV charging stations. CarCharging also accepts direct payment via
credit card.  
Users can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the
CarCharging map at http://www.CarCharging.com/. The ChargePoint(R)
mobile application for the 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.
