Car Charging Group, a provider of EV charging services, has closed its acquisition of EVPass, which specialises in building destination and location networks for EV charging, as well as its central New York Destination Location Network from Synapse Sustainability Trust.
CarCharging now owns and operates the EV charging stations formerly operated by EVPass.
The EVPass charging stations were deployed in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (“NYSERDA”), and are strategically located throughout Central New York, including Syracuse, Rome, and the surrounding areas.
The destination locations are comprised of shopping malls, including DestinyUSA, one of the largest shopping malls in the Northeast; higher education institutions such as SUNY-ESF; venues such as the JFK Arena in Rome, NY and the Oncenter Convention Center in Syracuse, NY; as well as 39 downtown commuter parking locations in Syracuse, NY. CarCharging will also administer the pending NYSERDA grant awarded to EVPass, which includes installing EV charging stations throughout Upstate New York.
CarCharging also finalized the appointment of Eckardt C. Beck, the Executive Director of Synapse Sustainability Trust, to its Board of Directors.
Both CarCharging and EVPass utilize EV charging stations manufactured by ChargePoint, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an EV’s battery.
