Kilroy Realty Corporation brings first EV charging stations to Carmel Valley

Kilroy Realty Corporation (KRC), a leader in sustainable developments, recently announced Carmel Valley’s first electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the company’s regional offices at 3611 Valley Centre Drive in Carmel Valley.

The three Blink Network EV charging stations are now available to serve its employees, office building tenants, and the community at large.

Blink chargers, developed by ECOtality Inc., feature large, easy-to-use touch screens and universal electrical charging connectors to accommodate all electrical vehicles. The charging stations can be conveniently located via mobile application or GPS.

“Carmel Valley shares KRC’s commitment to sustainability, and we’re proud to be able to bring this service to the community,” said Steve Scott, senior vice president, San Diego. “We are currently evaluating all our San Diego properties to see where there is need for EV connectivity and we look forward to bringing more online soon.”

Kilroy Realty intends to place additional Blink EV charging stations at its Mission City and Liberty Station projects in San Diego by year end, as well as its proposed One Paseo mixed-use project, located in Carmel Valley.

The EPA recently awarded KRC with its “Energy Star Top Performer 2011 award” for outstanding energy efficiency. Approximately 26 percent of KRC’s office portfolio is LEED certified and 51 percent of its office portfolio is either Energy Star certified or Energy Star eligible.

KRC owns and manages the largest percentage of LEED-certified commercial space in San Diego and intends to continue that tradition with the proposed One Paseo project. One Paseo’s planned sustainable design features include walkable streets, green buildings, energy and water efficiency features and erosion and sediment control measures. For more information on One Paseo, visit www.onepaseo.com or www.kilroyrealty.com.
