City of Charlotte Installs 26 Charging Stations & Adds EVs to Fleet

April 10, 2012

CHARLOTE, NC - The City of Charlotte has installed 26 charging stations in seven locations and has purchased eight electric vehicles for the City’s fleet. Both are pilot projects to determine the practicality of electric vehicles for Charlotte’s fleet and to gauge public use and demand for strategically-placed electric vehicle charging stations, according to a release from the City. The projects are two of the 17 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant projects funded with support from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The City purchased seven fully electric Nissan Leafs and one Chevrolet Volt. The Leafs are in use by the following departments: Engineering & Property Management, Department of Transportation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department, Aviation, and Neighborhood & Business Services. A Volt and Leaf are available for use by City employees at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center.

Charging station sites located on City-owned property each include one handicapped-accessible charging station space.
