Charging Your Electric Car At The Airport? There Are 64 Spots At Peachy Parking
That is not a typo. There are really 64 charging spots to charge your electric car.
When Peachy Airport Parking first opened its doors, the site only had about 6 charging spots. Through the work of local EV community, Peachy upgraded its facility and soon after we reported the location as the 2nd largest EV parking facility in the world. Perhaps now Peachy holds the title of the largest private airport parking EV facility in the world?
Each charging spot is supplied by a dedicated circuit to make sure there is uninterrupted power. All outlets are marked with special green covers to let customers know where to plug. The EV spots feature dedicated signage and are protected by a cone to make sure no ICEing occurs.
Helen Mouat, the General Manager of Peachy, says it is very common for all the spots to be occupied, especially during the week as business travelers drive to the airport and leave their cars for a good 110v soak. Sometimes Peachy gets a call from a customer that their vehicle got unplugged says Helen, and we kindly walk to their vehicle to make sure all is good.
With Georgia’s growth in EV ownership, having a facility like Peachy makes perfect sense and the supply of EV charging spots must meet the demand. Who knows, we might be writing another follow-up article a year from now with perhaps 100 spots?
