USA; Electric Car Charging Station Opens at Atlantic Station

Forward-thinking drivers soon will have more fueling options in Midtown.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed unveiled three electric vehicle charging stations during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Atlantic Station Wednesday.

“The city is pushing for the wide adoption of these charging stations,” Reed said. “I know we can be a top ten city of sustainability. This is a vital part of that.”

The electric charging stations are located at the Millennium Gate in Atlantic Station, a mixed-use development on 17th Street in Midtown Atlanta.

Reed and other government officials arrived to Atlantic Station Wednesday in a Chevrolet Volt — a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle manufactured by General Motors in 2010 — to unveil the new electric vehicle charging stations.

Reed told Midtown Patch he isn’t too concerned about Atlanta businesses that sell gasoline. Oil companies are not “hurting,” he said.

“This is another alternative,” Reed said. “We’re reducing our dependency on foreign oil and expanding the menu.”
