EV Stations Set Up At Purdue Calumet
December 18, 2014 — Purdue University Calumet is taking another step on green, sustainable initiatives. It’s installed two free electric vehicle charging stations on campus.
The north-campus station is east of Woodmar Avenue and south of 169th Street, just east of Anderson Building. The South-campus charging station is east of Woodmar Avenue and south of 173rd Street in parking lot just west of the Fitness & Recreation Center.
The charging stations to be available and free to any electric vehicle on a first-come, first-served basis. They’re going in place because Purdue Calumet is participating in NIPSCO’s “IN-Charge around Town EV Program.”
Associate Director of Facilities Engineering Paul Pratt said the charging stations broaden transportation choices available to students, faculty and staff interested in reducing their environmental foot print while saving on fuel costs. But Pratt did ask anyone who uses them to promptly move their vehicle to a regular parking space when charging is completed.
Purdue Calumet’s participation increases the number of EV charging stations deployed to date through the NIPSCO program to 24 at 18 Northwest Indiana locations.
