USA: Charge It! CC Gets an EV Car Charging Station

CC is charging ahead! Now there is no need to drive across town in search of an electric vehicle (EV) car charging station – Colorado College has one on campus.

The new EV charging station is located at 830 N. Nevada Ave., in the parking lot on the southwest corner of Nevada Avenue and Cache La Poudre Street, making it easily accessible to the Colorado College and greater Colorado Springs communities. The charging station comes courtesy of Jim Burness ’90, a political science major and CEO of National Car Charging. Burness arranged for the donation of the charging station from ChargePoint, the nation’s largest electric vehicle charging network.

CC’s Sustainability Council allocated $2,500 for the installation cost. The funds came from the 2012 Campus Annual Sustainability Projects Program, aimed at funding innovative and measurable initiatives that advance the college’s sustainability plan. The station also helps expand the electric vehicle infrastructure in Colorado. “Our business is to intelligently charge cars, but our mission is to build an engaged and connected global EV community,” Burness said.
