Los Angeles County Adds EV Chargers at Walt Disney Concert Hall
The County of Los Angeles announced the addition of 40 electric vehicle (EV) Level 2 charging stations and 3 DC Fast Chargers in the parking garage at The Music Center’s iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall.
This project is the latest in a series of much-needed EV charging infrastructure throughout the county for use by the public, employees, and fleet vehicles.
With the addition of 800 EV stations at over 70 locations since 2019, the County demonstrates a strong commitment to sustainability and to supporting California’s goal of installing 250,000 EV charging stations by 2025.
PowerFlex provided smart software for the installations. Through PowerFlex X, the county can track GHG emission reductions, optimize energy distribution, leverage real-time and historical data for transparency, and easy reporting.
“The Music Center has demonstrated a pioneering spirit since we were founded nearly 60 years ago, and we have continued to prioritize our commitment to sustainability in all aspects of our role as Los Angeles County’s premier performing arts destination,” said Howard Sherman, Chief Operating Officer, The Music Center, in a statement. “Our guests value and appreciate every step we take towards environmental quality, especially those that achieve tangible benefits. To that end, we are pleased the County has selected Walt Disney Concert Hall as the site for these new EV charging stations and are thrilled to play a part in helping the County embrace innovative technologies that will help decarbonize the planet.”
