In May, the Airport Authority opened 20 new electric vehicle parking spaces in our employee lot.
The new chargers were installed through SDG&E's Power Your Drive
program to bring electric vehicle charging to our 9,400 employees and to help encourage the switch to electric vehicles in the San Diego region. The Airport Authority is proud to host these ChargePoint Level 2 charging stations and looking forward to our continued partnership with SDG&E that will operate and maintain the charging stations over the next ten years.
So how does the Power Your Drive Program work? Employees interested in using the new chargers simply enroll in the Power Your Drive Program and create a ChargePoint account. Then they are ready to charge onsite while at work! The cost of the energy used to charge their cars is billed directly to each employee's SDGE Power Your Drive account. Each employee receives a separate bill for their EV charges and have the option to go paper-less or use auto pay.
The Airport Authority also has electric vehicle charging available both on the airside (for tenant use) and on the landside (for public/passenger use). Available to the public, we currently have EV parking stalls available at:
- Terminal 2 Parking Plaza-16 stalls
- Terminal 2 NTC Lot-20 stalls
- Terminal 1 Parking Lot-2 stalls
- Cell Phone Lot-4 stalls
- Administration Building-2 stalls
We are also planning for future EV charging demand by creating "EV ready stalls" and working with the Center for Sustainable Energy
on a EV Future Demand Study.Are you thinking about making the switch to electric?
