Nissan Wants LEAF EV Owners to Charge Their Cars At Work

Nissan is working with Georgia Power to make EV charging available at several workplaces in Atlanta, where the market for sales of the all-electric Nissan LEAF is said to be the largest in the United States.

Owning an EV and using it to commute from home to work often means that the car is being charged overnight, at home. However, the possibility of plugging in the vehicles at work might allow the owners a great deal of freedom in terms of range and places they can go.

“While most EV drivers plug in at home overnight, workplace charging enhances the LEAF ownership experience and expands the number of miles a LEAF DRIVER can go on power produced here in Georgia. Nissan is investing to support charging both in the community and at the workplace for the thousand of LEAF owners in Atlanta,” explained Brendan Jones.

The plan goes like this: Nissan and Georgia Power have agreed on funding a new partnership that enables local employers to receive a $1,000 rebate for each 240V Level 2 charger installed, split in half: $500 from Georgia Power and $500 from Nissan.

This is certainly good news for Atlanta’s green reputation, as it already established itself as the top market in America for the Nissan LEAF and the second city in the country for overall EV adoption, after San Francisco. All that’s left to see is if companies will greet the partnership with interest. Moreover, to qualify, businesses must have 100 or more employees and the facility must be in the Georgia Power service area.
