The City of Orlando and OUC partner to ”Plug-In" at one of the first of 100 Public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations Located throughout Orlando
On Thursday, April 1, 2021, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will join City Commissioners and OUC—The Reliable One to unveil the new 100 station Orlando Public EV Charging Network, and “plug-in” at one of the new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the John H. Jackson Neighborhood Center.
In total through the project, a partnership with OUC and the American Cities Climate Challenge, the City of Orlando has installed 100 new EV charging stations spanning across 33 locations throughout the City, including at parks, neighborhood and senior centers, parking garages, and public venues. Each location will also have at least one ADA accessible EV charging station to ensure the services are accessible to all drivers. For a full map of all 100 locations, click here.
This expansion of EV charging infrastructure is part of Orlando’s continued efforts to transform the city into one of the most environmentally-friendly, socially inclusive and economically vibrant cities in America. By expanding this critical infrastructure throughout the community this will help to support the growth of clean, zero-emission transportation solutions for city operations, residents and visitors.
