Charging at work
Nissan joins Georgia Power in a rebate program for charging station installations at workplaces.
Together they offer $1,000 for each new (up to 10 per workplace) 240-volt, Level 2 charging point for local employers (in service area) who have 100 or more employees.
$500 comes from Nissan, while another $500 comes from Georgia Power (since 2014). Nissan said that its participation in the program will run through June 30, 2015, so you'd better hurry up.
"Atlanta is already America's #1 market for the zero emission Nissan LEAF and #2 city in the country for overall EV adoption, trailing only San Francisco. The City of Atlanta, Georgia Power and Nissan recognize the environmental and economic benefits of making Georgia the nation's leader in EV adoption. With this funding support, Nissan is joining Georgia Power to help make EV charging readily available across the city."
"Nissan has already worked with numerous companies and organizations in metro Atlanta to facilitate workplace charging, including Ponce City Market and Agnes Scott College. The automaker funded the installation of public fast chargers at key locations such as Atlantic Station, a site co-funded by Georgia Power, which is the most visited EV charge site in Georgia."

Brendan Jones, director, Electric Vehicle Sales and Infrastructure Deployment, Nissan said:
"While most EV drivers plug in at home overnight, workplace charging enhances the LEAF ownership experience and expands the number of miles a LEAF driver can go on power produced here in Georgia. Nissan is investing to support charging both in the community and at the workplace for the thousands of LEAF owners in Atlanta, and Georgia Power is a great partner who shares that commitment."
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed commented:
“The City of Atlanta recognizes the importance of supporting the demand for charging infrastructure at workplaces across the city. The rebates and incentives offered by Georgia Power and Nissan create an attractive environment for commuters to choose an electric vehicle and will help Atlanta remain a national leader for electric vehicle sales. We commend both companies for recognizing the opportunity to support workplace charging and for presenting solutions that EV owners and their employers can truly benefit from.”
Mike Hazelton, senior vice president of marketing for Georgia Power remarked:
“Our electric transportation program continues to demonstrate our commitment to delivering products and services that meet the changing needs of our customers. The response to our rebate program for business customers in just a few months has been outstanding, and this new matching rebate from Nissan is going to provide an even greater incentive for Georgia businesses to provide onsite charging.”
