McDonald’s Corporation, the leading global foodservice retailer, and NovaCharge, a leader in the deployment of EV charging infrastructure, today announced the deployment of electric vehicle charging stations. McDonald's will open the first "green" restaurant, built with eco-friendly materials and technologies, including ChargePoint™ Networked Charging Stations for electric vehicles from Coulomb Technologies, making it the first of its kind in the United States.

Ric Richards, president of Richard's Advantage, Inc. and owner/operator of the new McDonald's, set a strategy in 2007 to build a state of the art restaurant dedicated to sustainability and reduced energy consumption. By partnering with NovaCharge, the new McDonald's will deliver yet another new facet of energy conservation by enabling EV drivers to have a place to recharge their vehicles, while enjoying their meal. NovaCharge, the exclusive distributor in the southeastern U.S. for the ChargePoint Network Charging Stations from Coulomb Technologies provided all aspects of sales and support for this installation.

The ChargePoint Network enabled charging stations provide:
• A secure, safe, reliable way for consumers to charge their electric vehicles anywhere they work and play.
• The ability for EV drivers to find, and navigate to, available open stations.
• Secure, authorized access charging, while eliminating energy theft and cord theft.
• An infrastructure that enables rapid growth of the market for plug-in electric vehicles of all types.
• Administrative monitoring and control services to allow utilities to optimize grid use.

“McDonald’s is an industry leader in environmental conservation and they are continually launching new initiatives to create a sustainable world” said Helda Rodriguez, president of NovaCharge. “We are pleased to be able to partner with them to deliver the ChargePoint Network system, and to provide safe, convenient, grid-friendly, charging stations for electric vehicles.”
