Kilroy Realty Corporation announced the installation of Carmel Valley’s first electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the company’s regional offices at 3611 Valley Centre Drive in San Diego.
The three Blink Network EV charging stations are now available to serve its employees, office building tenants, and the community at large.
The Blink chargers chosen, developed by ECOtality Inc., feature large, easy-to-use touch screens and universal electrical charging connectors to accommodate all electrical vehicles. The charging stations can be conveniently located via mobile application or GPS.
“Carmel Valley shares KRC’s commitment to sustainability, and we’re proud to be able to bring this service to the community,” said Steve Scott, Senior Vice President, San Diego. “We are currently evaluating all our San Diego properties to see where there is need for EV connectivity and we look forward to bringing more online soon.”
Kilroy Realty intends to place additional Blink EV charging stations at its Mission City and Liberty Station projects in San Diego by year end, as well as its proposed One Paseo mixed-use project, located in Carmel Valley.
