Araneta City launches e-vehicle charging stations

As part of its commitment to promoting sustainability, Araneta City has introduced electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in its shopping malls and office towers.

The City of Firsts unveiled in February its first EV charging stations at the basement parking of Cyberparks 1 and 2. Each station has Level 2 chargers with 5-meter Type 2 connector cables and a three-phase grid power supply, charging electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles faster.

The rollout of EV charging stations continues with other buildings in Araneta City.

“Araneta City continues to transition into a sustainable and environment-friendly community by implementing green initiatives like the EV charging stations. It is a step to keep the City of Firsts future-proof and adaptive to the evolving needs of times," Antonio T. Mardo, Senior Vice President for Operations of Araneta City, said.

The installation of EV charging stations is the latest measure to integrate environmental sustainability in Araneta City. Earlier green initiatives in the City include the solar panels at Cyberpark 1, green building design elements in Cyberpark 2, the adoption of LEED standards in Cyberpark 3, the use of geothermal energy to power Ali Mall, and the launch of Green & Go e-shuttles.

"Through these initiatives, the City of Firsts supports the current push to reduce carbon footprint and adopt eco-friendly lifestyle options," Mardo said.
