The Future is Now

Our Philosophy
Car Charging, Inc., is a company dedicated to a clean, sustainable environment and an economically strong, energy-independent America. We join hands with the US government's initiative to turn dream into reality. Aided by U.S. government tax incentives and grants, we would like to be at the forefront of the electric car revolution. We believe that investing in infrastructure now will facilitate a seamless transition to electric cars.

The Power is Yours

Our Service
We install electric car charging stations in convenient locations across North America. We anticipate locking down as many convenient locations as possible, to  ultimately provide easy access to the end user- the electric car owner.
The charging stations are provided and installed by Car Charging, Inc. at no cost to the business/property owner. The benefits for the host is the ability to provide his customers or constituents with the service of convenient car charging and at the same time benefit from a percentage of the revenue from the station.
Our Advantages

Dealers and distributors SELL charging units which requires a capital outlay by the business / property owner for the units themselves as well as installation costs and municipal permitting fees. Once they are sold, the dealers and distributors have nothing more to do with them. We do not sell our units. We provide, install, maintain and service the units at no cost to the business / property owner. We provide a service for a fee borne only by the EV owner.


The Industry

The era of electricity becoming a mainstream transportation fuel is imminent. Major automakers, including General Motors, Toyota, Ford, Mercedes, Volvo, BMW and Nissan are developing a new generation of energy efficient cars called Extended Range Electric Vehicles (EREV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and all-battery electric vehicles (BEVs). voltIn addition, other car companies such as Tesla Motors are already shipping BEVs. General Motors, Toyota and Nissan have all announced plans to have BEVs, EREVs or PHEVs available in 2010. All of these cars have one thing in common: They must all be recharged. They need to connect to the existing electric grid to recharge their batteries. Exclusively electric Plug-in vehicles are the next generation. The term "plug-in vehicles" refers to any vehicle that can be recharged from the electric grid. Today's hybrids offer efficiency of up to 60 miles per gallon; plug-in cars are projected to deliver 100-150 miles per gallon or better in an all electric operation.


U.S. Grants and Tax Initiatives

In an effort to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil and to commit America to a clean environment, the United States Government is utilizing grants and tax incentives to jump start the EV industry, as listed below. We intend to utilize this unprecedented resource towards the expansion of our business. In September of 2008, Congress approved a $25 billion automotive retooling program earmarked for the electric car industry. The fact that the government is strongly committed in its support of the EV industry bolsters our work and increases confidence in our industry.

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit

  • The Energy Policy Act (EP Act) of 2005 (Pub. L. No. 109-58, § 1342) provided an income tax credit equal to 30 percent of the cost of installing new alternative fuel vehicle refueling property at each location by the taxpayer but was limited to a maximum of $30,000 in the case of business property
  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (H.R.1) passed on February 10, 2009, increases the credit from 30% (capped at $30,000) to 50% (capped at $50,000) for business property placed in service in 2009 and 2010
  • If the refueling property is acquired by a tax-exempt organization, governmental unit, or a foreign person or entity, and the use of that property is described in section 50(b)(3) or (4), the company that sold the fueling equipment can claim tax credit - but only if they provide the customer with written notification of the credit value

California Assembly Bill 118 (AB118)

  • AB118 signed into law in 2007
  • $120M/year available for clean fuels and vehicle technology to address climate change
  • Funds will be distributed in May or June of 2009 through the California Energy Commission

Other Incentives

  • Up to $7,500 Federal Tax Credit for purchase of new electric cars - based on battery size
  • The U.S. stimulus package contains EV and infrastructure incentives
