NEW: WPI Unveils New Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

 

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has unveiled a new campus charging station for electric vehicles (EV).

The station was recently installed on campus, and comes after the first station in the city’s history opened at Clark University earlier this month. It is a dual unit station that will charge two vehicles at one time. The station is located at the Goddard Hall entrance to WPI’s campus on West Street in Worcester.

An Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources led to the installation of the station. The purpose of the grant was to bring more electric vehicle infrastructure to the region. National Grid installed the new charging station.

The grant for the station was awarded to the Institute for Energy and Sustainability, a non-profit housed at Clark. Massachusetts’ Energy Climate Plan has set a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020, and 80 percent by 2050. Roughly 30 percent of those reductions will come through transportation, and there are now 150 stations awarded to more than 20 municipalities across the Commonwealth.
