More public electric vehicle chargers are headed to Georgia — which leads the nation in EV adoption.
Forty-four electric vehicle charging stations will be installed across Georgia thanks to funding from Charge Georgia, a state incentive program designed to boost public EV charging stations at universities; state agencies; and cities and counties.
Convenience stores across Georgia are saving energy thanks to energy efficient lighting upgrades made possible by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds from GEFA’s State Energy Program. As a result of this funding, the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores (GACS) implemented lighting-efficiency improvements to participating convenience stores across the state, the first of which has already saved more than $7,000 in the first year after the retrofits, along with more than 54,000 KWh, approximately the amount of energy used by five American homes over a year.
