Montgomery Regional Airport Unveils New EV Charging Stations

Montgomery, Al – The Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) is pleased to announce the installation of two new high-speed electric vehicle charging stations for public use, promoting sustainability and an eco-friendly future. This initiative was made possible through collaboration with the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA), highlighting MGM’s dedication to serving travelers. This significant addition aligns with the airport’s ongoing efforts to support environmentally friendly initiatives while providing top-tier amenities for travelers.

The two high-speed level-three charging stations, strategically placed near the airport’s Intermodal Modal Building, offer users a seamless and rapid charging experience. This convenient location ensures easy access for both travelers and passengers, making their journey even more hassle-free.

“We are very thankful for our partnership with ADECA, which made this possible.  As electric vehicle popularity continues to grow, the availability of charging infrastructure becomes increasingly crucial,” stated Wade A. Davis, Executive Director of MGM. “The new high-speed EV charging stations at Montgomery Regional Airport demonstrate a forward-thinking approach to modern travel, offering electric vehicle owners a quick and efficient charging experience.”

The successful implementation of this project showcases the successful collaboration between MGM and ADECA. ADECA’s mission to support economic development and community enhancement aligns well with MGM’s objectives, illustrating how partnerships can positively impact local communities and the environment.

Kenneth Boswell, Director of ADECA, shared his thoughts on the partnership: “As more electric vehicles, including many manufactured here in Alabama, make their way onto the state’s roads and highways, they will need access to public charging facilities. ADECA is pleased to provide grant funding to add these chargers at the Montgomery Regional Airport for those coming to the airport and for travelers on U.S. Highway 80 and nearby Interstate 65.”

MGM’s state-of-the-art high-speed electric chargers are compatible with a wide range of EV models, ensuring electric vehicle owners can take advantage of this new service. Featuring an intuitive and user-friendly interface, these high-speed charging stations make it simple for drivers to connect and charge their vehicles promptly, further enhancing the overall travel experience.

MGM would also like to highlight and thank its community partnership with Governor Kay Ivey, the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, SDAC, Alabama Power, Dixie Electric, and GMC.
