Georgia Power Helps Bring Electric Vehicle Charging to VSU

The EV ARC™ (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) is solar powered and can be used 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in any kind of weather condition — even if there is a power outage in the area. The charger is located at the Oak Street surface parking lot at the university, can charge up to two EVs at once, and tracks the sun’s patterns, generating and storing its own electricity.
