electric vehicle charging

It’s easy and free to charge your electric vehicle in the Zoo’s parking lot.

Did you know it’s National Drive Electric Week? If you own an electric vehicle (EV), celebrate by using our free EV-charging station recently donated by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) as part of FPL EVolution, an electric vehicle pilot program.

You’ll need to download the FPL EVolution app, which will give you a code to scan at the station to begin charging.

FPL plans to install more than 1,000 charging points at over 100 locations throughout the state, which could increase the current availability of charging stations by more than 50 percent. In addition to encouraging drivers to “go electric,” FPL EVolution charging infrastructure will collect valuable data to help FPL further advance electric transportation and prepare for 2025, when one in every four cars sold is expected to be electric.

Our parking lot is accessible daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The charging stations are compatible with all major EV models, including those manufactured by Audi, Chevrolet, Honda, Kia, Nissan, Tesla and Volkswagen.
