vehicle (EV) charging services, through its wholly owned subsidiary CCG

"Our sales partnership with Public Power allows us to aggregate our
electricity purchases and pass significant savings on to our property owner
partners, EV drivers, as well as to new residential and commercial customers,"

single-family and multifamily residential customers, and can include public EV
charging services, for one combined price."

services while staying with the local utility for delivery and maintenance and
we are pleased to offer those savings to CarCharging's customers," said
Vjollca Jusufi, Public Power. "Public Power is a proud supporter of green
programs and partners, such as CarCharging, that help America become more
energy independent."

Additionally, through Public Power's "clean green" program, CarCharging is

result in far fewer harmful impacts on the environment.
