Post Properties First to Introduce Electric Car Charges to Atlanta’s Multifamily Industry
- Oct 19, 2011
Atlanta—Luxury communities are getting more environmentally conscious. Post Properties are installing two electric vehicle charging stations at Post Alexander, a luxury community in Buckhead, located in Atlanta, Georgia. These stations, which were put in place to make the community more green, are Atlanta’s first electric vehicle chargers in a multifamily residence.
“Post residents expect their communities to be environmentally friendly,” Chuck Konas, executive vice president of construction at Post Properties, said in a statement. “Since we expect the popularity of electric vehicles to increase, it makes sense to deploy these stations at key Post communities around the country in the future.”
The GE Industrial charging Solutions stations, called WattStations, can fully charge cars in four to eight hours.
“Post is anticipating that once the electric vehicles are available, people will start buying them. As such, we want to be able to meet our residents’ and future residents’ needs,” Terri Sherrod, director of marketing and branding, Post Apartment Homes, tells MHN.
Post also has plans to add charging stations to its communities in Austin, Texas, and Alexandria, Va.
