MCLEAN, VA--Oct. 1, 2013: Northern Virginia Based Capital City Builders, LLC today announced its new "EV-Ready Garage" initiative, making the installation of 240 Volt power used to charge electric vehicles from auto makers such as Tesla, BMW, and Ford standard in all its homes going forward.

Capital City Builders, LLC, a leader in luxury homes in the Northern Virginia area, has always strived to stay ahead of customer demands. Managing Partner Ali Khazai believes that electric cars are here to stay. The close-in suburbs of the Nation's Capital are ideally suited for "electric commuting". Expecting consumer demand for high voltage plugs in the garage to sky rocket in the next year, Capital City Builders, LLC has decided to make EV-Ready Garages a standard option. "As a small family owned business I remember when my father first made air conditioning a standard feature. Several years ago we made Cat6 a standard feature for data and voice and now we are adding these 240 volt outlets in the garage. It may be viewed as crazy now but in a few years it will be as standard as the garbage disposal."

On the weekend of October 5th and 6th, Capital City Builders, LLC will be showcasing its latest home at 6920 Arbor Lane which features the "EV-Ready Garage". Its homes to be constructed at 6913 Arbor Lane and 1317 Kirby Road will have two separate meters provided by Dominion Virginia Power. One meter will be the standard meter found in most homes. A second meter will be servicing the garage at a discounted rate provided by the power company.
