USA: Galleria adds electric vehicle charger

The South Bay Galleria has been popping up on more maps and iPhone apps after it recently installed one of the first South Bay electric vehicle charging stations in their parking structure.

“We noticed an increased trend of patrons driving electric vehicles,” Keith Geiger, the general manager of the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach said.

A bright green Level II, 240-volt station by Coulomb Technologies, that looks like a high tech hose surrounded by green paint, has been added at the west entrance of Nordstrom and allows for vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Ford Focus Electric, Toyota Prius, and Tesla Roadster among others to plug-in and power-up while their drivers spend some time in the mall.

Sean Dennison, a Chevrolet Volt driver and personal stylist manager at Nordstrom is grateful for the new pump-freedom. He drives 38 miles everyday from Hollywood, and after ditching a 13 mpg SUV for the 202 mpg hybrid, he is happy there is a charging station in the area to calm his ‘range anxiety’ because of the lack of charging stations in the South Bay
