Dignity Health Sports Park Partners with Volta to Provide Electric Vehicle Charging
Guests to receive free electric vehicle charging at industry-leading sports venue
LOS ANGELES (Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2019) – In conjunction with the Protect the Pitch program, which continues to lead in stadium sustainability and clean energy efforts, Dignity Health Sports Park has installed 12 new Volta electric vehicle charging stations that will be available to guests at all events.
“We are extremely excited to install Volta electric vehicle charging stations at Dignity Health Sports Park,” said Dignity Health Sports Park General Manager Katie Pandolfo. “We continue to prioritize creating the most sustainable stadium and aligning with Volta is an opportunity that will impact those efforts greatly.”
Volta designs electric vehicle charging networks for forward-thinking businesses seeking to provide seamless, simple and free charging. The company leverages machine learning, and artificial intelligence to predict the number of stations and charging speeds needed to match customer visit times. Volta designed Dignity Health Sports Park’s charging network as a foundation for further expansion to match the park’s rising electric vehicle demands. Projecting out based on the average Volta station impact in Los Angeles, Dignity Health Sport Park’s 12 stations will offset an estimated 250,000 pounds of CO2 annually.
“We are proud to partner with Dignity Health Sports Park as their provider of electric vehicle charging services. They are leading their industry in sustainability,” said Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO, Volta. “Adding Volta charging to their property will expand their lead by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in their community. We look forward to scaling their charging network as their volume of electric vehicles continue to grow.”
Dignity Health Sports Park’s partnership with Volta comes in conjunction with the club’s Protect the Pitch sustainability initiative. In the previous few years, the LA Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park have launched numerous sustainability efforts to reduce carbon footprint and become more sustainable through the Protect the Pitch initiative.
This year, the LA Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park were nominated for The StadiumBusiness Awards 2019 for the Sustainability & Community Award for their efforts behind Protect the Pitch.
