Charlotte To Install First Rapid-Charge Electric Vehicle Charging Station

In partnership with Nissan Motors and Brightfields Transportation Solutions, the City of Charlotte’s Thomas Avenue parking lot located off Central Avenue will house the City’s first rapid charge electric vehicle charging station effective June 9.

Aimed at preparing Charlotte for the future influx of electric vehicles, this partnership helps create a sustainable alternative fuel network, say City officials.

Since 2012 electric vehicle sales have been doubling each year.  As prices continue to fall and technology improves, it is anticipated electric vehicles sales will continue to increase.  In an effort to promote widespread adoption of electric vehicles and to make Charlotte electric-vehicle ready, the City of Charlotte is actively identifying opportunities, installing infrastructure and looking into creative ways to promote the adoption of electric vehicles and the associated charging infrastructure.
