Electric Vehicle Charging at UConn

1 Comment

Are you the owner of an electric vehicle?  The University of Connecticut has recognized the importance and efficiency of both hybrid and fully electric alternative fuel vehicles.  Recently, grants have been acquired to allow UConn to install Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations around the Storrs Campus for your convenience!  Currently, there is one EV station in the Motor Pool parking lot off of North Hillside Road, two in North Garage on North Eagleville Rd, and plans to install stations in South Garage in the near future.  The North Garage stations were open for use on Friday, February 6, 2015.  All stations located on campus are free of charge for public use for the first 5 years of operation.  In addition to the campus stations, there are 4 more charging stations in the parking garage off of Dog Lane in Storrs Center, as well as one in the parking lot of the Mansfield Community Center.  These stations charge $1/hour of charging to the public, or a flat rate of $3 per charge for residents with a garage pass.

These two ceiling mounted charging stations in the North Garage were installed earlier this month and are ready for use.
