November 2, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, The Ray C. Anderson Foundation, Georgia Department of Transportation, Georgia Department of Economic Development, and Hannah Solar, LLC have partnered to install the state’s first solar-powered PV4EV (photovoltaic for electric vehicle) charging station at the state’s Visitor Information Center in West Point, Ga.
The innovative charging station, powered by the SpotlightTM Solar LIFT, is the first in what is imagined to be a series of technology demonstrations that will make the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway a model for the future. Georgia ranks 2nd in the nation for registered EVs, and the installation of the PV4EV is a progressive step to promote more broad adoption of EVs in the region.Contact Info:
