JACKSONVILLE, Florida. – Jacksonville will have a new “customer-driven” electric vehicle design innovation center that will be open to the public.
Miller Electric, a national electrical and technology contractor, and CBRE, a Jacksonville-based commercial real estate services and investment company, began construction on a new electric vehicle design center on Friday.
The cutting-edge facility, which will be located at Miller Electric Company’s Southpoint Parkway campus, is designed to alleviate the challenges customers face when choosing electric vehicle charging options and infrastructure.
The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Jacksonville Mayor Donna Deegan and other city leaders, including JEA and JTA leaders.
The design center will showcase the latest sustainable technologies, including inductive charging, solar awnings, storage batteries, microgrids and transparent use case data, allowing customers to experience the environmental benefits of these innovations.
The center will showcase a wide range of EV technologies and microgrid solutions, enabling customers to make informed decisions by examining solutions from different manufacturers. With seven Level 3 chargers and four Level 2 chargers from various manufacturers and software vendors, the center offers customers and the public the opportunity to test and evaluate different options.
