Car Charging Group to Provide EV Charging Services at Lancaster Arts Hotel

Car Charging Group Inc., a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, has announced that it has signed a contract with Lancaster Arts Hotel in Lancaster, Pa., to provide EV charging services at 300 Harrisburg Ave. This installation represents Car Charging Group's entry into the Pennsylvania market.
"Cars spend 94 percent of their time sitting dormant," said Michael D. Farkas, chief executive officer of Car Charging Group. "So installing car charging stations at hotels, where guests leave their vehicles parked for extended periods of time, makes a lot of sense. The Lancaster Arts Hotel is able to offer their guests this added amenity while also generating revenue and being environmentally responsible."

Car Charging Group provides EV charging stations at no charge to property owners and managers while retaining ownership, thus allowing drivers access to convenient locations and partners to realize a percentage of the charging revenue generated.

"We're pleased to be partnering with Car Charging Group," said Darcy Novello, General Manager of the Lancaster Arts Hotel. "We see the importance and benefits of offering EV charging services. Economically this makes sense because we are able to appeal to the environmentally friendly guest, and we receive a percentage of the revenue generated; and environmentally this makes sense because we are able to decrease our carbon footprint and promote the evolution of the electric car market."

The hotel features deluxe accommodations with unique surroundings. All of the rooms, from the lobby to the suites, are filled with original works of art, especially that of local Pennsylvania artists.
