USA: UT debuts electric vehicle charging stations on campus

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The University of Tennessee debuted 12 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on campus Monday.

The charging stations will be available to the campus community and the public.

Half of the charging stations are located south of the Research Greenhouse on the UT Agriculture Campus, near the intersection of E.J. Chapman Drive and Jacob Drive.

The remaining stations are located in Staff Lot S23 on the main campus, south of the former Student Health Center at Pat Head Summit Street and Andy Holt Avenue.

“These stations offer an opportunity for both the UT and Knoxville communities to work together to reduce our environmental impact,” Chancellor Jimmy Cheek said. “The UT community is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. These stations offer another resource to move us closer to our goal of being climate neutral.”

Electric vehicle owners with a valid university student, faculty or staff parking permit can obtain a special EV permit from either Parking and Transit Services Offices at no additional charge to use the EV spaces and charging stations for up to four hours at a time.

The general public may also use the spaces and stations if they acquire a visitors permit at the Circle Park information booth or either of the Parking and Transit Services offices.
