Wednesday, October 28th, 2020
Georgia Power has launched two new electric vehicle (EV) charger at The Forum in downtown Rome. The Georgia Power Community Chargers were installed in partnership with Floyd County and the City of Rome to fill a much needed EV charging gap in Northwest Georgia, and to serve visitors to the Broad Street area and nearby Berry College and Shorter University.
This gives Georgia Power 44 fast-charger installations. The company previously installed 42 fast chargers to serve the growing EV population in Georgia. Charging at the station will be complimentary to all drivers through Monday, November 23rd.
The charging station is capable of 62.5 kW output, and stations can pair together to offer 125 kW. Charging sessions require ChargePoint authorization, which is available at www.georgiapower.chargepoint.com
The installation represents the newest technology in EV fast chargers, offering charging speeds up to 125kW – adding 100 miles in 12 minutes – dual dispensers and power sharing capability. Earlier this year, Georgia Power installed chargers in Columbus, Lavonia, Kingsland and Milledgeville.
Georgia Power will invest $6 million over the next three years in fast-charging EV infrastructure for the public, further enabling electric vehicle adoption and connecting communities.
