AC Charging Station In Flood-Prone Spot

Some people are finding something shocking about a new parking garage in Atlantic City.

It comes with six charging stations for electric cars. But they’re in an area where no overnight parking is allowed because of the risk of flooding.

Casino Reinvestment Development Authority spokeswoman Kim Butler tells The Press of Atlantic City that the spot was chosen so the charging stations would be highly visible and to showcase the agency’s commitment to being green at its garage in the Ducktown neighborhood.

An engineer with the National Fire Protection Association says a flood-prone area is a bad spot to put stations pumping out up to 240 volts of power.
