Equipment from Efacec with ChargePoint Networking
Georgia Power has opened 11 new public electric vehicle charging islands at utility properties across the state. They mark the completion of the first phase of planned charging infrastructure being developed by the company which will include approximately 61 community charging islands for public use statewide by the end of 2016.
The new charging islands include Level II chargers as well as DC fast charge units by Efacec. All are ChargePoint-networked.
The chargers are located at the following George Power sites:
- Atlanta – utility headquarters;
- Dunwoody – Customer Resource Center;
- Duluth – Duluth Operating Center;
- Lilburn – Lilburn Business Office;
- Lawrenceville – Lawrenceville Business Office;
- Athens – Northeast Region Office;
- Augusta – Augusta Customer Service Center;
- Savannah – South Abercorn Customer Resource Center;
- Alpharetta – North Fulton Business Office;
- Lithonia – Metro East Region Office; and
- Smyrna – Smyrna Business Office.
Charging using the DC fast charger, the utility notes, includes a $4.95 activation fee for the first 20 minutes of charging and 25¢ per each additional minute. Charging using the Level 2 chargers includes a $1 per hour fee for the first three hours and 10¢ per each additional minute.
The charging islands accept either a new Georgia Power Card, powered by ChargePoint and available at GeorgiaPower.ChargePoint.com, or an existing ChargePoint card.
In addition to the Efacec equipment, Georgia Power plans to install Veefil chargers from Australia’s Tritium as it expands its public charging network.
