The first piece of infrastructure on the Mission Zero Corridor is the photovoltaic for electric vehicle (PV4EV) Lift by Spotlight Solar™, a 3,000 kw solar array, funded by Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG) at the Georgia Visitor Information Center in West Point, GA. The solar structure will power an electric vehicle (EV) quick charging station with enough renewable electricity to charge two EVs to 80%+ power in 30-45 minutes. When the EV charging station is finished, it will enable EV drivers to travel from Atlanta, GA to Montgomery, AL with ease. This is the first installation of its kind in the Southeast at a Visitor Information Center. When EVs are not charging, the renewable electricity flows into the power grid for the City of West Point, GA, hometown of the late Ray C. Anderson (1934-2011).
