Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
With the continual gas price fluctuations, more car buyer's are focused on fuel efficiency than ever before. In response to this trend, Atlanta Chevy dealership Jim Ellis Chevrolet will be installing the first of its kind 6 bay solar charging canopy at their Atlanta location that can charge up to 6 vehicles to full charge in about 3 hours.
Jim Ellis Chevrolet is the leading retailer of the Chevy Volt in Georgia and now they're offering customers a way to charge them. As a part of Jim Ellis' commitment to "green vehicles", the six bay solar charging canopy is being installed in July and should be ready for users to "plug into the sun" beginning in August 2012. As mentioned, it will be the first of its kind installed at an automotive dealership in Georgia.
When asked about the effort, given the recent decline in gas prices, Jimmy Ellis, COO of Jim Ellis Automotive commented: "There is a growing consumer base that is more concerned about using no gas than the price of gas. Additionally, if history is any guide, as the economy improves, the price of gas will go up again and become more of a factor. The Chevrolet Volt is here to stay and is an important part of the evolution – and solution – as we find ways to lessen America's dependence on foreign oil."
The multiple bay solar charging station is set to be operational in August 2012. Customers who purchased their Volts from Jim Ellis Chevrolet will be entitled to charge for free, at least for a while, any time. In the interim, Jim Ellis Chevrolet currently already provides regular 240V chargers to their customers.
