Aug. 22—LEESBURG — Georgia Power, in partnership with Lee County, hosted a ribbon-cutting recently to celebrate the launch of the community's first electric vehicle (EV) chargers. The chargers — located at Oakland Library in Leesburg — are part of a statewide initiative to enable EV adoption and connect communities. The Lee County fast-chargers are the 51st chargers in the state. Georgia Power is building a network of safe, reliable and convenient charging infrastructure for an ever-growing market segment of drivers.
Charging sessions require ChargePoint authorization, which is available at www.georgiapower.chargepoint.com
The installation represents the newest technology in EV fast chargers, offering charging speeds up to 125kW — adding 100 miles in 12 minutes — dual dispensers and power sharing capability. Georgia Power has installed chargers in several cities across the state including Rome, Columbus, Lavonia, Kingsland, Tifton, Forest Park, Cleveland and Milledgeville.
