Work Starts On Building EV Charging Hub
Construction work began in early February on the Robinson Recharge Mobility Hub, the OUC-led electric vehicle (EV) project that will feature up to 20 Level 3 charging stations. Expected to be completed later this year, the facility will be the largest of its kind in Florida, with the capability to charge all makes of battery-powered vehicles.
Located on Robinson Street near the I-4 overpass in downtown Orlando, the hub will offer EV drivers convenient access to fast chargers that can power up a low battery in 20 to 60 minutes. The $1.8 million project is partly funded by a $500,000 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). OUC is covering most of the remaining costs of the project and donated the land for the hub.
Aireko Energy Group US is the general contractor of construction.by
