Electric vehicle charging stations unveiled at Gulfport Premium Outlets
The future of the electric vehicle charging station is now available at the Gulfport Premium Outlets.
Electric vehicle owners will now have the opportunity to charge up their cars while getting in a little retail therapy. Electrify America, Simon, and Mississippi Power held a ‘first charging ceremony’ today where they unveiled Simon Outlet’s first Electrify America ultra-fast DC charger for electric vehicles.
These new chargers can charge an EV at speeds up to 20 miles per minute which is about seven times faster than today’s commonly used chargers. Gulfport Premium Outlets General Manager Pam Meinzinger said, “Our company is very much interested in sustainability. We’ve received the green star for the past four consecutive years for our efforts, saving greenhouse emulsions by 37 percent. We’ve reduced electricity by 33 percent. We’ve reduced our water consumption by 75.5% so it’s very much our mission and we are executing that plan very successfully.”
The new charging stations are located on the north east end of the parking lot facing I-10.
