Greensboro Airport Installs EV Charging Stations
Piedmont Triad International Airport is the first and only airport in North Carolina to install electric vehicle charging stations.
Four level one charging stations were installed in the long term parking deck after inquiries from airport employees who either owned electric vehicles or were thinking about purchasing one. PTI first reached out to Denver International Airport to learn more about offering electric vehicle charging at airports and found that Denver had a positive experience with the ten stations they had installed. PTI Airport then purchased eight chargers total and is currently testing out four in the long term parking deck before installing two in the employee parking deck. They are keeping an additional two chargers in storage for future use once charging demand increases.
The charging stations were up and running in July and so far have been a success. Tom Dunlap, parking manager at the airport, said that they have been pleasantly surprised with the regular usage of the stations.
Congratulations to PTI Airport on this great success and thank you for leading the way in airport charging in North Carolina!
