Thanks to a Green Innovations Challenge Grant awarded by the state, the city of Sunnyvale and the Foothill-De Anza Community College District are now equipped with electric vehicle charging stations.

The stations were awarded as a part of the Solar Electric Vehicle Charging Corridor Project, aimed at developing skills of unemployed electricians and to build more green energy infrastructure for the public.

One of the solar-powered stations was awarded to NOVA, a Sunnyvale-based job training consortium, to benefit the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for demonstration and training purposes.

“We were one of three workforce investment boards to receive the grant,” Sunnyvale communications officer Jennifer Garnett said. “The total grant was $19 million; through NOVA, we got $4 million.”

Three community colleges also received funding from the grant.
