Manhattan Parking Lots to Get EV Chargers

The expansion of the charging points for electric vehicles will soon reach several parking lots in Manhattan thanks to the Car Charging Group, an EV charging solutions provider which will begin installing such systems in parking lots.

The parking lots in question belong to Icon Parking Systems. Some 200 locations will benefit from the services provided by the Car Charging Group following the deal signed with Icon. The company that will install the chargers will also own, maintain and upgrade them, sharing the profits in an undisclosed manner with Icon.

The chargers to be installed at the locations are Level 2 (220-240 volts) stations sourced from Coulomb, but the possibility of Level 3 chargers making it into parking lots is also open to discussion.

There is no precise word yet on how much charging your EV in a Manhattan parking lot will cost, but Andrew Kinard, president of the Car Charging Group says that in some states, where the billing by the kilowatt-hour isn't allowed, it would cost $3 for one hour of charging.

As was to be expected, the prospects of earning extra while doing virtually nothing is a very pleasing idea for parking lot operators.

“It’s a way to create value for our clients and to get the halo of green technology for our properties,” Michael Barelli, vice president of leasing and development at Laz Parking, another company which partnered with the Car Charging Group said. “It’s an attractive deal for us.
