The university and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) have recently begun work on a project to create a new infrastructure of electric vehicle charging stations throughout the state. Electric vehicles are seen as the green alternative to gasoline-powered cars because they do not emit carbon dioxide or air pollution.

Junior Lindsey Craig, a member of the Student Programs Committee at the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) and an environmental science major with a concentration in sustainable energy, said she believes the state and university’s efforts represent a positive future for environmental activism and change.

“It will help the state become a leader in this field and may help air quality overall if more people buy electric vehicles due to this increased convenience,” Craig said. “The installation of charging stations around Delaware will lead to an even bigger movement not only statewide but also nationally as more and more people begin to demand electric vehicles.”
