Cox Installs Large EV Charge Station

By Staff Writer August 11, 2020

 

Cox Automotive Mobility’s Pivet Atlanta facility, located between downtown Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, has completed one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) charging single-property installations in the southeast. Cox did the project with Georgia Power and EV charging network provider ChargePoint. The groundbreaking Smart Technology Project, which includes the installation of 20 Level 2 fleet chargers, six (6) fleet DC Fast Chargers and six (6) public DC Fast Chargers, fills a critical need for charging access in South Metro Atlanta, an area that has historically been an EV charging desert.

“The electric vehicle powertrain will be central in tomorrow’s ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared) future and the anticipated growth of high-utilization commercial fleets,” said Alex Fraser, AVP of Pivet, Cox Automotive Mobility. “Thanks to partners like Georgia Power, ChargePoint and the City of Atlanta, we’re building the infrastructure necessary to power the electrified fleet future, which has been a key focus area for our team since opening Pivet Atlanta last year.”

The turnkey design and build of the installation delivered by Georgia Power’s Utility Services is intended to primarily support fleet electrification, including but not limited to powering the Lyft Express Drive program currently operated out of Pivet Atlanta. The facility will also serve other fleets and OEMs in search of a charging solution on the city’s south side.

Pivet Atlanta will be able to monitor and collect detailed data on charging sessions and station usage, helping gain a more comprehensive view of the charging needs and requirements of the users. This will also help track the need for further growth.   

“Georgia Power and Cox Automotive share a common goal in helping customers realize the financial and environmental benefits of fleet vehicle electrification,” said Darren Epps, electric transportation manager, Georgia Power.
