Duke Energy plans to install a network of 530 electric car charging stations in Florida. The utility is working with communities to install the units for public use in multi-unit dwellings, workplaces and other busy locations and is currently taking applications.
Apart from the electric car charging stations being installed for the public to use and in close cooperation with communities and clients, Duke Energy also reserved 10 percent of the charging stations to be installed in low-income communities.
The programme runs under the name of Park and Plug and is a pilot for now. The equipment will be provided by NovaCHARGE, who will supply and install the charging stations and integrate services for the scheme as well.
Sites will be selected through an application process which is currently open. You can apply to host a public electric car charging station here.
