West Campus Adds Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

In partnership with ECOtality, a recognized leader in the research and development of advanced energy systems specializing in alternative fuel, Montgomery County Community College West Campus students, faculty and visitors are now able to charge their electric vehicles at two, 240-volt pedestal charging stations in the South Hall parking lot.

Funded in part by a $114.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, ECOtality is deploying thousands of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) — vehicle chargers — in 21 major cities and metropolitan areas in nine states and the District of Columbia, including California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

The charging stations feature seven-inch LCD touch-screen displays, a user-friendly interface, and mobile phone and credit card payment options.
