MIAMI BEACH, FL--Jan. 22, 2013:  Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CCGI) ("CarCharging"), a nationwide provider of convenient electric vehicle (EV) charging services, through its wholly owned subsidiary CCG Energy, LLC, announced a sales partnership with one of the largest independent energy suppliers in the United States, Crius Energy, LLC, through its subsidiary, Public Power, a leader in the retail energy industry. Through this relationship, CarCharging is able to provide competitive rates for all electricity services, including EV charging, to residential and commercial customers in states with deregulated energy markets. 

Public Power is licensed to provide energy services in Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.  As a partner of Public Power, CarCharging is able to offer decreased electricity costs for residential and commercial properties, including its property partners, which should also reduce the cost for the EV drivers that recharge their EVs at CarCharging's participating partners' locations.

"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," said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. "This relationship also enables CarCharging to offer electricity services for residential EV charging to single-family and multifamily residential customers, and can include public EV charging services, for one combined price."

"Public Power offers customers the option to choose discounted energy supply 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 able to offer customers electricity generated from 100% renewable energy sources. This will assist CarCharging in decreasing harmful greenhouse gas emissions associated with conventional energy production methods, which will result in far fewer harmful impacts on the environment.
