USA: Wake Tech adds charging stations for electric cars

Drivers can now “plug in” and charge the batteries on their electric cars on the main campus at Wake Tech Community College. Progress Energy has installed two charging stations for plug-in electric vehicles, or PEVs, on campus.
This move is part of a research project focused on commercial charging stations. Two stations were also installed at Wake Tech’s Northern Wake Campus earlier this year. The project underscores the college’s commitment to sustainability, according to Michelle Fauver, spokeswoman for Wake Tech.

“Electric vehicles offer a fuel-efficient alternative for many commuters,” says Butch Grove, Associate Vice President for Creativity, Sustainability and College Improvement at Wake Tech, “and we support those choices. With students traveling to and from five Wake Tech campuses daily, we’re very much aware of the need to reduce emissions wherever possible – and we want to provide greener options.”
