Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce

Ribbon Cutting for New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The Gilmer Chamber is grateful for the opportunity  to partner with Georgia Power Company to bring the first DC fast charger to Gilmer County and the first one along the 515 corridor. With the addition of this charger, we have extended the range for EV motorists and have made travel between the metro communities and the North Georgia mountains possible. This is an infrastructure program that Georgia Power Company has entered into and is making charging your electric vehicles easier. Guests can stop at the Gilmer Chamber and fully charge their electric vehicle in 15-30 minutes. While waiting for their vehicle to charge, guests can visit our welcome center or dine at a nearby restaurants. If you own an electric vehicle you can use the PlugShare app  to find this charging station along with other charging stations throughout the United States.
