U.S. Army Garrison Eisenhower and Georgia Power, a Southern Company subsidiary, have partnered on a strategic objective to accelerate the access, adoption and usage of electric vehicle (EV) charging throughout the installation near Augusta, Ga.
The utility privatization contract entered into by Georgia Power with Fort Eisenhower will see the company own, maintain and manage the EV infrastructure and charging program at the installation. The first phase of this objective will involve scaling 14 strategic locations within Fort Eisenhower with the necessary infrastructure to support EV chargers. The construction portion of the project, with a total cost of $1.6 million, is scheduled to begin by the end of 2023.
This investment is part of the broader UP contract, with Georgia Power serving as the owner of Fort Eisenhower's electric utility system. Accelerating electric framework investments under this contract serves to address the evolving energy needs of Fort Eisenhower
