Thanks to a grant from the federal Department of Transportation, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has received $6.1 million for 300-400 electric vehicle (EV) charging ports across the 20-county region. Notably, the program will focus on putting chargers in areas currently lacking much EV charging infrastructure “to support equity in the region’s EV transition.”

The chargers will be of the Level 2 variety (mean a charging rate of 4-10 hours from empty), as opposed to the Level 1 charger (roughly the same as a common residential outlet) or the high speed Level 3 that takes less than an hour. They will be placed within or near disadvantaged communities at 75-100 existing charging sites.
