USA: Okanagan College supporting electric vehicles

Megan Wood (left) and Environmental Studies diploma student Maria Marsh (right) chat with Okanagan College Facilities electrician Alan Becker as he works on one of the four charging stations being installed at the Kelowna campus.

They may not have any electric vehicles yet, but the Penticton campus of Okanagan College will soon have a pair of charging stations for them.

“Right now, we are looking at it as partly a community service. People will be able to pull up and charge their vehicles,” said Lomas “It’s also an attempt at trying to stimulate some interest and discussion about electric vehicles.”

The college has some hybrid vehicles in its fleet right now, but no fully electric ones, though Lomas said the college is looking at the possibility.

“We are in the process of investigating electric vehicles and our new fiscal year starts in April, so we will be looking at that to see what is possible,” said Lomas.

The charging stations will be available to the public at the same rate as visitor parking fees.
