UTEP Now Has 10 EV Charging Stations In Operation, More To Follow

The University of Texas at El Paso just announced it has turned on 10 electric vehicle charging stations on compus, and more will be in operation by the end of the year.

The 220-volt stations are located at the Sun Bowl and Schuster parking garages, as well as at the Mike Loya Academic Services Building.

The existing stations were made possible thanks to a $256,000 Texas State Energy Conservation Office grant awarded in 2009.  An additional state grant of $98,000 will fund more charging stations that will come on line the latter half of 2012.
