The Portland Trail Blazers and Pacific Office Automation have expanded their partnership to offer complimentary electric vehicle (EV) charging within the parking garages on the Rose Quarter campus. Sustainability and the journey to zero waste are key commitments for both organizations and this innovative partnership will allow more fans to join in those efforts.

Encouraging Sustainable Transportation

POA has installed EV charging stations for Blazer fans and staff using their Terra Energy products. This helps to reduce transportation-related emissions and encourages the use of more sustainable modes of transportation. Complimentary charging is currently available in the Annex (two charging stations), Garden Garage (eight stations), West Garage (seven stations) and East Garage (11 stations) for guests that have paid to park. Each station is first come, first serve and chargers will charge approximately 15-20 miles of range per hour. The Level 2 Chargers feature a standard J1772™ Plug that is compatible with most electric of plug-in hybrid vehicles – Tesla drivers will need their Tesla adapter to charge.

We are excited to partner with Pacific Office Automation to provide Rip City with complimentary EV charging on campus,” said Brittany Saulsbury, Portland Trail Blazers & Rose Quarter Sustainability Manager. “Electric vehicles are a small step towards a carbon-free future and we’re proud to provide complimentary charging to our fans that are on their sustainability journey with us.”

“We’ve partnered with the Trail Blazers providing office technology solutions for many years. Offering EV charging gives our partners, such as the Blazers, a quality product from an already trusted supplier. Our sustainability initiatives are comprehensive beyond the digital transformation of paper, and this is just one great example.”   Doug Pitassi, President, Pacific Office Automation.

The Portland Trail Blazers are committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility, and Pacific Office Automation is proud to be a key partner in this effort. By working together, we are making a positive impact on the environment and setting an example for others to follow. Pacific Office Automation and the Trail Blazers will host a ribbon cutting for the EV Chargers on February 8 in the Garden Garage at 4:00 p.m.
