USA: Lambert Airport, Washington University charge forward with electric stations

Lambert-St. Louis International Airport introduced five new charging stations and purchased its first electric vehicles to be used by airport crew members.

The airport purchased the electric charging stations from Hartford, Conn.-based LeGrand for $2,500 each for a total of $12,500. The charging stations will be located in Super Park Lot A, across from Terminal 1. The airport said electric vehicle owners will be able to get a free charge during the day. The charging stations were added due to the growing number of electric vehicles in the region, airport officials said.

In addition, the airport replaced its utility pick-up trucks by purchasing four compact Global Electric Motorcars (GEMs) for $68,000 from Medina, Minn.-based Polaris Industries Inc. The vehicles will be used for the airport’s Super Park operations, which includes two terminal garages and four long-term lots. The airport said the vehicles will be used for routine lot patrols and maintenance operations.

Separately, Washington University announced its first electric vehicle charging station outside Brauer Hall on the college’s Danforth campus. The charging station stems from an independent study project by Elizabeth Mohr, a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering.
