Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Our Sustainability Office is proud to work with Parking and Transportation Services on strategies to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, reduce emissions and promote personal health and well-being.
One major strategy is to support clean vehicles. We’ve now installed a total of 37 electric vehicle charging ports across campus, where students, faculty and staff can plug in free-of-charge. This includes two new 30-minute DC Fast Chargers behind Mihaylo Hall, funded in part by an $80,000 rebate from the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVip), plus 25 charging ports along Gymnasium Drive
The results are impressive. From July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, campus drivers plugged in for 14,094 vehicle charging sessions, helping to spare the use of 14,646 gallons of gasoline and preventing 48,406 kilograms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
