Simon, a global leader in retail real estate and NRG eVgo (ee-vee-go), a subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc., are excited to debut electric car fast charging stations at North Georgia Premium Outlets to provide an added convenience for its shoppers. Visitors are now able to park, plug-in, and charge while enjoying the center’s savings of 25 to 65 percent off every day.
Simon began installing charging stations in 2011 and has since then created a network of more than 170 charging stations nationwide at 55 locations. North Georgia Premium Outlets joins Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Phipps Plaza, and Town Center at Cobb to offer electric vehicle charging stations for its shoppers.
North Georgia Premium Outlets now has three charging stations located in the parking lot in front of Carter’s. Shoppers with compatible cars can use the CHAdeMO DC fast charger with the ability to provide a LEAF or a Tesla approximately 40 miles of range in only 15 minutes of charging. Additionally, the charging stations will provide two Level 2 chargers, supportive of all EVs and plug-in Hybrids.
These charging stations are self-service and easy to operate . Shoppers can just “pull up and plug in” and leave their vehicles at the charging station while they enjoy time at the center. The charging stations support Simon’s sustainability practices and exercise the company’s green energy initiatives. While focusing on important environmental issues, the stations also add another level of convenience to the overall shopping experience for green drivers.
