Cities steadily adding more EV chargers for public to use

  • 5 mths ago

Local governments are making headway as they develop their electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. “Progress varies depending on what stage governments are at in the electrification strategy and funding availability,” says Brandon Branham, assistant city manager and chief technology officer for Peachtree Corners, Ga., which is part of the Atlanta metro. Its 2022 population is estimated at 45,099.

Branham’s community has been working on its electrification strategy for the past seven years. It installed its first public charging infrastructure in 2014, only two years after incorporation as a municipality. “Since then, the city has gone onto testing roadway applied, solar-powered EV charging and it has expanded the public charging network throughout the city. We have released an RFP to establish a buying program of EV infrastructure for our residents and business communities.” Branham adds that Peachtree Corners is working on establishing a private-public partnership to open the largest Direct Current Fast Charge (DCFC) charging site in metro Atlanta.
