CHARLOTTE – Charging solutions provider Atom Power is putting a charge into the downtown Los Angeles entertainment and business complex L.A. Live with a deal to install 48 electric vehicle charging “ports.”

The deal triples the number of EV charging capability for L.A. Live, which includes music venues, sports arena, restaurants, and hotels. It’s located adjacent to Arena (home of the NBA Lakers and Clippers) and the Los Angeles Convention Center.

“One of the biggest hurdles to widespread EV adoption is the lack of access to reliable public charging. Drivers want assurance that they’ll be able to charge their vehicles wherever they go. Right now, that need isn’t being met,” said Ryan Kennedy, co-founder and CEO of Atom Power. “Installing Atom EV chargers at L.A. Live allows us to go beyond just addressing the demand for EV charging. We’re elevating the entire destination experience, starting the moment guests pull into L.A. Live’s parking garage.”

Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Here are the details.
