USA: Walsh College Installs Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Facilities are available to students, employees and visitors at the school’s Troy location.

In its latest effort to be as green as possible, Walsh College has installed new electric vehicle charging stations at its Troy campus on Livernois Road.

The stations “kind of look like skinny gas pumps, except they’re not,” Walsh College Facilities Director Chris Stout said. “They are garnering a lot of curiosity.”

The campus already boasts several “green” features, including naturalized landscaping, hybrid parking and a college-wide recycling program, and Stout said adding the charging stations to the LEED Gold-certified campus made sense.

“We want to be green,” Stout said. “It seemed like the next logical thing.”

The charging stations, which cost $20,000 total and were installed at the beginning of December, were funded in part by a grant received from the Department of Energy in August, Stout said. There is a fee through ChargePoint America to use the station, though Stout said the charge is “minimal.”

“You just swipe the card and it gives you access to the system,” she said. “You leave it plugged in for a while.”
