Four new electric vehicle charging stations installed in Daily Parking Garage #2 opened today at Dulles International Airport. Similar charging stations are being installed at Reagan National and will go into service soon.
Each station can accommodate two vehicles, for a total of eight parking spaces at each airport. The spaces are conveniently located near walkways to the terminal and are reserved for “electric vehicles only” with special signage.
“We recognize our airports’ importance to the region as a transportation hub,” said President and CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Jack Potter. “We are pleased to offer this service enhancement to our customers and to promote environmental stewardship.”
The charging stations feature two types of charging: Level 1, which is a 120-volt outlet, and Level 2, which is a 240-volt connector. The station is activated onsite via smartphone app, ChargePoint “Charge Pass,” RFID-enabled credit card (free - for identification purposes only) or toll-free call to a 24/7 service center.
As part of the pilot program, there is no fee to use the stations through 2013, but regular parking rates apply as drivers exit the garage. The charging stations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Vehicle charging stations are located in these convenient locations:
Q Dulles International (NOW OPEN): Daily Garage 2, Level 3
(convenient to the walkway to the Main Terminal)
Q Reagan National (COMING SOON): Daily Garage B, Level 1
(convenient to the elevator and walkway to Terminal B)
More information about the location and use of the airport charging stations is available online. The charging stations are part of MWAA’s “green” (environmentally-friendly) programs.
