World’s Largest Airport Has World’s 2nd Largest Private Parking For EVs
In 2012 Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport received 95,462,867 passengers. However it has zero chargers on it short and long term parking lots. Roughly a year ago a few parking spots have been added in the International Terminal designated as Hybrid/Alternative Fuel, but finding a receptacle is tough or nearly impossible as Hybrids take over the spots all the time.
Every airport in our country has private parking facilities, but none have gone as electric friendly as Peachy Airport Parking until very recently in Seattle-Tacoma.
Peachy, has two parking lots, one outdoor and another fully guarded indoor lot. Turns out this building had lot of 110v dedicated circuits and what started as only 4 EV spots turned into a the most friendliest Electric Vehicle Airport parking on the east coast. With the help of local EV enthusiasts, Peachy Airport parking created dedicated EV parking reservation system with 8 EV marked spots. You can make a reservation online at this link.
And when arrive to leave your car, an EV cone is protecting your spot.
Due to the popularity of the program, Peachy expanded EV parking to 25 spots and the proof is below:
Four Teslas, two Volts, and 12 NISSAN LEAFs captured here on a single day.
All cars are charged using the vehicle owner’s equipment at 110v on a dedicated circuit. The Volt and LEAF can be charged up in a single day trip, but Tesla probably calls for a slightly longer trip. Best part: the price to park your EV is the same as ICE, and Peachy DOES NOT charge for electricity.
Could it do 50 EV spots by the end of the year?
