As the EV market continues to grow nationwide, Entergy has opened its first company-owned electric vehicle charging station in Mississippi.

Located at Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland, the fast-charging station will serve both local EV drivers as well as those passing through on I-55 and I-20. Entergy Mississippi will track the use of the station as it prepares to open other locations across the state.

“The complexities of the power grid require us to plan years ahead of when we’ll need infrastructure in place to serve our customers,” Haley Fisackerly, president and CEO of Entergy Mississippi, said. “By proactively installing this fast-charging EV station pilot project, we’ll be able to learn in real-time the effects electric vehicle use has on our systems and implement technologies to help manage the demands we expect in the future.”

The facility is equipped with two direct current fast chargers that provide up to 120 kilowatts of power. Customers using the station will be charged $.30/kWh with an EV, on average, costing $20-$30 to be fully charged in 30-45 minutes.

An estimated 26 million EVs are expected to be on America’s roads by 2030.
