Atlantic Station is Home to New Solar Car Charging Station

Atlanta, GA – September 1, 2011 Atlantic Station is home to Atlanta’s first public solar powered electric car charging station.  On Thursday, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed inaugurated the new canopy with the ribbon cutting ceremony and plugged an electric car into the station.  “This solar electric vehicle charging station at Atlantic Station is an important milestone towards my goal of making Atlanta a cleaner and greener city,” he commented. “We’re focusing on a number of initiatives that will make the City of Atlanta and its residents and business owners better stewards of the environment. Zero emission vehicles play a vital role in ensuring that we are building and investing in a sustainable city for future generations.”

Many of Georgia’s sustainable companies helped construct the solar powered car charging station.  “We are very proud to have supplied the helical pile foundations for such an innovative project.  We are honored to be involved with such cutting-edge, Georgia-based companies and to be contributing to the progress of renewable energy,” said Patrick Hutchinson, Cantsink Manufacturing’s President.

Cantsink Manufacturing provided the foundation for the canopy, MAGE solar integrated their modules, and ACE Electric installed the system. “With much vision and dedication, CB Richard Ellis Investors has created one of the most environmentally friendly metro spaces of the entire Southeast in Atlantic Station,” said Joe Thomas, President and CEO of MAGE SOLAR USA. “We are extremely proud at MAGE SOLAR to be part of this prestigious solar project in one of the most innovative and exciting neighborhoods in all of Atlanta.”

The solar canopy, located next to the Millennium Gate, is one of CB Richard Ellis Investors’ model communities for sustainable and energy efficient living.  The solar station has three public electric car charging outlets and the public can plug in their electric car at no cost for one year.
