Georgia Power Shows Off Solar EV Charging Unit at Road Atlanta’s Petit Le Mans’ EV Corral
Georgia Power provided an Beam Global Electric Vehicle (EV) charging unit for the EV Corral at Road Atlanta’s annual “Petit Le Mans” sports endurance race in Braselton this weekend. Visitors were able to charge their EV before the solar unit has a permanent home at Atlanta Technical College.
“Atlanta Technical College is appreciative of our partnership with Georgia Power and we are especially excited to be one of the first customers in the state to receive the Beam Global charging unit,” said Dr. Victoria Seals, president of Atlanta Technical College. “We strive to be the best all-around community resource and this addition serves that portion of our mission. As we expand our energy programs and train students on green technologies, it is important that they see and experience this real-life example on our campus.”
A second Beam Global unit will also be headed to Valdosta State University as part of Georgia Power’s Community Charging program.
