Georgia Tech’s Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) has been selected to receive a grant of $39,675 by the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers.
These funds will help Georgia Tech expand its EV charging program by installing nine dual-port Level II chargers in visitor-accessible locations including near the Student Center, Bobby Dodd Stadium, and Howey Physics.
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.
