Coral Square Mall Announces Electric Car Charging Site
CORAL SPRINGS, FL, April 27, 2016 – For local residents and visitors driving electric vehicles, shopping and traveling is now easier with the installation of a NRG EVgo Freedom Station® site located at Coral Square Mall. Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers are now able to conveniently plug in and charge their cars while they shop or grab a bite.
Simon, a global leader in the retail real estate industry, and NRG EVgo (ee-vee-go), announce today the installation of the latest electric car fast-charging Freedom Station® site that can recharge shoppers’ vehicles in 30 minutes or less.
“Simon is committed to providing sustainable amenities for our customers and the opening of multiple EV charging stations today is a great example of that,” said Mona Benisi, Senior Director of Sustainability for Simon. “The locations of our shopping centers across the U.S. mean that Simon is ideally positioned to contribute to the development of a national infrastructure for electric vehicle charging stations, and also advances the company’s sustainability efforts.”
The Coral Square EV chargers are now open by the Food Court Main Entrance to the mall.
“It is our mission to put the right chargers in the right places,” said Arun Banskota, President and CEO of EVgo. “EVgo is already the nation’s largest provider of public DC fast charging, but we are also the fastest growing by far. These premier properties are incredible additions to our national network of reliable and accessible DC fast chargers that keep drivers of all EV’s charging forward.”
The EVgo Freedom Station locations in South Florida are part of the nationwide established EVgo network that is designed to support both current and future charging technology. Locations are equipped with 50kw DC Fast Chargers, which can deliver a nearly full charge in less than 30 minutes allowing EV drivers to quickly charge their vehicles while enjoying one of the many conveniences the Simon Malls offer. The stations also have Level 2 chargers that can charge all EVs. Across the country there are more than 500 EVgo chargers in 32 metro areas serving the needs of EV drivers no matter what EV they drive.
