MUSIC CITY CENTER UPGRADES ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGERS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Music City Center now offers more electric vehicle charging stations in its parking garage through a new partnership with ChargePoint, the world’s leading EV charging network.
The new ChargePoint units replace old units that were initially installed in July 2016. Previously, there were only nine stations. With the upgrade, three new stations have been added, for a total of 12, marking an increase of 33 percent.
“Our garage serves not only our guests but also visitors to the downtown area, and we are so fortunate to be able to offer this amenity to them,” said Music City Center President and Chief Executive Officer Charles Starks. “
The system upgrade includes a nationwide network for electronic fueling with cloud-based software and services, a mobile app, and driver support. Through ChargePoint, drivers have saved more than 280 million gallons of gas and avoided more than 1.4 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions since 2007.
“It’s important that we stay current with the latest technology and innovation to meet the needs of our customers,” Starks added. “More importantly, this furthers our ongoing commitment to sustainability.”
The facility’s three-level parking garage is the largest covered garage in downtown Nashville. Open daily to the public, the garage boasts 1,800 spaces with 24-hour roving security, an automated parking guidance system, and a fully automated payment system.
There are four designated spaces for EV charging on each level of the garage. Customers must have a ChargePoint account. Standard parking rates apply.
