APRIL TOPIC: Electric Vehicles in Atlanta
Atlanta is the number two metropolitan market for electric vehicles (EVs) in the nation, largely due to state subsidies above the national average, electric power prices below the national average and access to carpool lanes on congested highways. Georgia Power’s $12 million “Get Current” program, which incentivizes property owners to construct new EV charging stations, is contributing to further market expansion.
As the market for EVs continues to expand, so does the need for standard practices and protocols among EV drivers. Join us to discuss the market for EVs in Georgia as well as how we can foster EV driver behavior that will help the market flourish.
