It supports the Georgia smart city’s aim to increase electric vehicles ownership and use within the city by providing residents and businesses with vetted EV charging solutions.
Georgia smart city Peachtree Corners has announced a new request for proposal (RFP) as it seeks partners to help expand an electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) service to businesses, visitors and residents.
The RFP supports Peachtree Corners’ goal of increasing EV ownership and use within the city by providing residents and businesses with vetted EV charging solutions.
National and international technology leaders are invited to submit offers designed to provide EV owners and operators in the city with charging solutions that are easy to purchase, as well as install and feature a number of technology options while remaining competitively priced.
“Complementing our position as the country’s premiere smart city environment powered by real-world smart infrastructure and connectivity, Peachtree Corners is striving to improve the community’s energy and transportation sustainability,” said Brian Johnson, city manager.
“To this effort, we are working to increase the availability of electric vehicle charging stations within the community for office workspace, retail, hotel, institutional, industrial and multi-family properties.”
Located in suburban metro Atlanta, Peachtree Corners is a growing city of 45,000 residents with leadership that focuses on comprehensive planning and purposeful development. It is home to international companies, US-based corporations, and numerous small businesses with a significant number of office buildings headquartered within its 500-acre technology park.

The city’s newly constructed town centre, along with the adjoining two-acre Town Green, offers its residents, work force and visitors a wide array of events, activities, entertainment, dining and shopping options.
Peachtree Corners is also home to an intelligent mobility corridor called Curiosity Lab, a technology incubator with 5G capabilities, a three-mile autonomous vehicle test track and facilities for permanent and temporary technology development. This city-owned infrastructure offers use of facilities at no charge, as well as complete confidentiality and no-equity requirements.
Peachtree Corners management added that it intends to compile a comprehensive charging solution suite to enable accelerated selection and deployment of EV charging where people, live, work and play.
The smart city environment bids to serve as the model for how government and private industry can better collaborate to create a better future for society and business. Peachtree Corners claims to have deployed the world’s first fleet of teleoperated e-scooters, a fully autonomous shuttle utilised by actual residents, and a solar roadway to the largest electric vehicle charging hub in the region.
