Electric Car Chargers – UB Reporter: Need to know news and views for UB faculty and staff

In a good month, Alan Rabideau doesn’t stop at the gas station.

That’s not because he isn’t driving – the engineering professor commutes roughly nine miles to UB’s North Campus. Rather, it’s due to the university’s latest effort to make its three campuses more sustainable.

UB and partners recently installed electric car-charging stations at the university’s three campuses.

“From the Solar Strand, which generates enough clean, renewable energy for hundreds of student apartments, to composting food scraps and implementing an innovative first-of-its-kind bike share program, we strive to evolve, build resilience and minimize our environmental footprint on the future,” says Dennis Black, vice president for university life and services. “The car-charging stations are another piece of the puzzle to help UB become climate neutral by 2030.”

UB partnered with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and ChargePoint as part of a larger initiative to install 20 charging stations in Western New York and 80 throughout the state.
