Orlando International Airport Plugs into Green Energy

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Recharging your electric or hybrid vehicle while traveling is now a reality at Orlando International Airport. Under an agreement with the Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC), the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) approved the installation of 20 charging stations to provide service to airport patrons with plug-in electric vehicles.

The charging stations are manufactured by ChargePoint and 10 are mounted on the walls in designated sections in both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ terminal parking garages. Funding for the equipment was provided by a federal grant and OUC assumes the cost of installation, operation, maintenance and electricity. Users will be charged for use by ChargePoint.

With the growing availability of alternative fuel source vehicles, GOAA is taking the lead on supporting green initiatives and reaffirming a commitment to enhance customer service.
