EV stations for business ready

The City of Peachtree Corners is offering assistance to businesses in the city that are interested in installing electric vehicle charging stations.

As part of President Biden's $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, there are a number of incentives at the local, state and federal levels available to those looking to adopt electric vehicles. In addition, Georgia Power is also offering incentives as part of its Make Ready program.

For businesses, the first step is to determine what the stations need to do. Will they be supplying power to a fleet of vehicles, or enabling employees to charge vehicles at work? Perhaps the goal is to attract shoppers who want to park where they can get charged at the same time. Whatever the wish, the city of Peachtree Corners is available to help businesses determine the best arrangement for its needs and connect the people with the right resources.

There are a variety of cost off-sets currently available. Commercial property owners and businesses may set up a time to speak with experts who can help walk them through the process of installing EV charging stations on their property.

Film industry coming back

We are glad to see the film industry back up and running and, once again, filming in Peachtree Corners. We have had 13 requests from production studios so far this year, which is about the same as in 2019. Obviously 2020 was a bust, with only one Capital 1 commercial in January.
But the industry is winding back up, which is good to see. Blue Cat Productions filmed in Peachtree Corners six times over the past year. You may know their work: the series Ozark. The series Monarch also filmed in Peachtree Corners this past summer, and most recently ABC Signature, a subsidiary of Disney Television Studios, filmed some shots for the series Queens at The Forum shopping center.

Small business funding applications under review

The City of Peachtree Corners is currently in the process of reviewing more than 100 applications for funding under the American Recue Plan Act of 2021.

Earlier this year, the city launched four separate grant programs to assist businesses and nonprofits whose operations have been severely impacted as a result of COVID-19.

Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 which was signed into law on March 11, 2021 by President Biden (H.R. 1319), the city will receive $16.4 million which will be given to qualified small businesses and nonprofits that suffered economic hardships due to the impact of COVID-19.

The intention is to help businesses remain open and operating and keep Peachtree Corners’ residents employed, as well as to aid nonprofits serving the community with operational funding. The application window has closed, and applications are under review. The city expects to start issuing checks in early 2022.
