Each day, many students cross the Fifth Street Bridge not thinking much of the downtown connector that exhales exhaust below; but a few are working to electrify the cars that pass beneath.
In a competition
hosted by the City of Atlanta and Emory University’s Goizueta Business School,
a team of Georgia Tech students earned first prize and a monetary award for
proposing a system for electric vehicle adoption in Atlanta.
Drivers of electric vehicles may now recharge their systems at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.
The pilot installation project, in partnership with Recharge Solutions Int’l LLC (RSI), provides a level II, 240-volt electric vehicle charging system, as well as a 110-volt electric fleet charging system for Georgia Tech service vehicles.
