Georgia Power enables electric vehicle charging at work locations

ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2013 — /PRNewswire/ — Georgia Power is now offering workplace charging to its employees throughout the state. The program is part of ECOtality’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Project – a public-private partnership with the Department of Energy that evaluates the effectiveness of EV charger infrastructure. Georgia Power is the first company in the state to participate in the program.

Beginning today, Georgia Power is making 10 smart chargers available to employees at its headquarters in Atlanta to enable EV charging while at work. The company will also add additional chargers at other business locations around the state. Data captured from the chargers will be used to gain insight on workplace charging effectiveness and offer strategies for better use of charger infrastructure assets.

Georgia Power hopes to maximize employees’ electric vehicle range and encourage adoption of proven transportation technologies among workers and customers. Some employees may be able to double their daily driving range, and for the first time, long distance commuters can consider electric vehicles as an option.

“Offering this option to our employees is just another way we’re showing our commitment to the electric transportation industry,” said Mike Hazelton, Georgia Power’s vice president of marketing. “Our participation in this project allows us to further explore innovative ways to help our customers save money, use energy efficiently and help the environment.”
