Andy Kinard, President of Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB:CCGI), an owner and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, was featured on "NewsEdge" in Washington, D.C., the evening television news program on WTTG-TV, an owned-and-operated television station of the Fox Broadcasting Company.
The segment, hosted by Roz Plater, focused on the first electric vehicle charging station installed in a residential building in Washington, D.C.
During the segment, Kinard presented an EV charging station, located at 425 Mass Apartments on Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. and demonstrated how easily residents of the building can charge electric vehicles using the station installed in the building's parking garage. Tesla Motors (Nasdaq:TSLA) provided their electric vehicle the Roadster for the segment.
In addition, Kinard informed businesses on the benefits of installing an EV charging station, "It'll bring customers to you and then when they get here it's going to take them a couple of hours to get any useable amount of electricity so they'll walk around and spend money."
