Tanger Outlets Mebane

Plug-in Facts:

  • Four Level 2 Charging Stations

“We are pleased to offer four FREE EV Charging Stations at the Tanger Outlets in Mebane. We have discovered many of our shoppers are now arriving in electric vehicles and we wanted to make sure they are accommodated. We even have locks on them on the weekend to protect the spaces from being used by gas-powered vehicles. When you arrive during a weekend visit, just call our security line at (336) 207-8711 and we will unlock them for you. The spaces have received many compliments and we are delighted to be able to offer free charging while our customers save money!” -Jeff Johnson

Bruce Photo


Bruce is a Plug-in NC ambassador from Cary, NC. His favorite electric vehicle is the Nissan LEAF. When asked why he loves electric vehicles he explained, “My father was born in 1919, he grew up watching gas engine vehicles go main stream. I saw the chance to be part of electric motor vehicles going main stream.” Thank you Bruce for volunteering at our events and being a great electric vehicle advocate!
