CarCharging & City of Plano sign EV charging agreement

‘Texas continues to be a strong growth market for CarCharging, so we are pleased to complete this agreement with the City of Plano,’ said Michael D Farkas, CarCharging's founder and chief executive officer. ‘Located within the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, Plano offers the opportunity to expand the services we provide across the state and widen our leadership position in the Southern US.’

The stations cover seven locations – including Russell Creek Park, Maribelle Davis Library, Carpenter Park Recreation Center, and Oak Point Recreation Center. Blink Level II EV chargers are able to rapidly recharge electric cars, and accept payment with the Blink InCard or major credit card via the Blink mobile application, Blink Network website, or Blink customer support center.

‘Given our vision for the city of Plano, we're excited to be working with CarCharging to maintain and manage our existing Blink EV charging stations,’ said Steve Stoler, spokesperson for the City of Plano. ‘Electric vehicle use continues to accelerate, and we believe that by partnering with CarCharging, we can provide the best environment for our residents to take advantage of this clean energy alternative to combustion-based transportation.’
