Atlantic Station opens electric-vehicle charging station

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Mayor Kasim Reed joined Atlantic Station officials today to cut the ribbon on the solar-powered station located across the street from the Stargate Millenium Gate.

Via Atlantic Station:

The Atlantic Station charging station will be able to fully charge any of the currently available U.S. electric vehicles — including the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf — in three to seven hours vs. the standard charging time of 11 to 25 hours, depending on the type of electric vehicle.

Motorists will not be charged to use the charging stations through the end of 2011. Beginning January 2012 motorists will be charged $3 per hour to use the station. Guests will be able to pay to use the station with apps on their smart phones or with a card swipe at the station.

Now we know exactly where to go to ask for rides when gas prices spike to $57 per gallon. (Twiddles thumbs, cackles, adjusts monocle)
