The measure is part of Mayor Reed’s agenda to ensure that Atlanta is one of the nation’s leading cities for sustainability.
Mayor Reed charged the airport with installing 300 electric vehicle charging stations for public use.
The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability is coordinating with the sustainability team at the airport to meet the goal, and plans to install an additional 100 electric vehicle charging stations at the airport by the end of year 2017 and the final 100 electric vehicles by 2018.
The EV charging stations are broken down into Level I and Level II chargers located across the ATL campus.
Level I chargers are ideal for longer-term charges, while Level II chargers provide a faster charge in less time. ■
