Workplace, Retail and Public Charging

While most charging will probably occur at home, companies may offer workplace charging. If you would like to charge your electric vehicle at work, contact your company's management to discuss options for charging infrastructure.

Georgia Power encourages both workplace and public charging infrastructure at shopping malls, grocery stores and restaurants. Georgia Power helped develop the standard plug to ensure that all charging stations would be able to operate on various types of vehicles.

Companies can choose from a number of electric vehicle supply equipment manufacturers and should contact a certified independent electrician to add any necessary circuits. A property owner in a non-residential area can view the Commercial (non-residential) Area—EV Permitting Guide*. Georgia Power offers various rate options for commercial and industrial customers. Electric Vehicles may cause another rate to be more beneficial for your business. View rates for residential or business.

If you charge at an office or other location outside your home, the usage will show up on their electric bill at their current rate.

Currently there are many public electric charging stations in Georgia and around the metro Atlanta area with additional stations planned. Public charging stations may require usage fees at the property owner's discretion.

How to Find Electric Car Charging Stations

Several websites offer charging station locators, including the U.S. Department of Energy*.

To locate a charging station when you're on the go, download the PlugShare app* for your iPhone® or Android-powered smart phone.

DC Fast Charging

DC fast charging provides a rapid recharge of battery electric vehicles, generally in less than 30 minutes. We have worked with the Society of Automotive Engineers and other utilities to develop new standards for DC fast charging. Because of the expense, many installers will wait for demand to increase before installing a station in a particular area. It is expected as vehicle sales increase, infrastructure development will follow.
