Partnering with the Charge Georgia Rebate Program, the City of Suwaneeis working to install an electric vehicle fast-charge station at Town Center for public use. This will be the first fast-charge station to be installed by a municipality in Gwinnett County. “It’s really exciting to be able to offer an environmentally sensitive service such as this,” says Public Works Director James Miller. “The electric vehicle station also serves to give folks another reason to come to Town Center and further promotes downtown Suwanee,” states Miller.
The dual-head, level-three charging station is expected to be installed by the summer, and will be available for 24/7 use, capable of providing an 80 percent charge to most electric vehicles in under 30 minutes. Two parking spots at the back corner of City Hall on Savannah Square Street will be reserved for electric vehicles using the station, which will have two connectors, one which will serve SAE J1772-enabled vehicles while the other connects to CHAdeMO-enabled vehicles.
