Post Properties has taken the initiative to go a little more green at a local Atlanta property.  Planning for the automotive selections of some present day users and potentially all automotive users of the near future, Post has installed electric vehicle charging stations at a community in Buckhead and has plans to expand it’s operative green plan to more communities in the future:

“Luxury communities are getting more environmentally conscious. Post Properties are installing two electric vehicle charging stations at Post Alexander, a luxury community in Buckhead, located in Atlanta, Georgia. These stations, which were put in place to make the community more green, are  Atlanta’s first electric vehicle chargers in a multifamily residence.

“Post residents expect their communities to be environmentally friendly,” Chuck Konas, executive vice president of construction at Post Properties, said in a statement. “Since we expect the popularity of electric vehicles to increase, it makes sense to deploy these stations at key Post communities around the country in the future.”

The GE Industrial charging Solutions stations, called WattStations, can fully charge cars in four to eight hours.

Post also has plans to add charging stations to its communities in Austin, Texas, and Alexandria, Va.”
