Cuesta College installs 40 public EV charging stations
Cuesta College announced April 9 the installation of 40 smart electric vehicles charging stations across its two campuses in an effort to increase the sustainability of the college.
The San Luis Obispo college made the chargers open to all EV drivers with valid parking permits. The Series 6 chargers were installed through the PG&E EV Charge Network grant with the help of SemaConnect. All the charging stations are designed for shared use at Class A commercial properties and will also receive three years of SemaConnect full network services and warranty.
“We’re excited to help Cuesta College and the broader San Luis Obispo community support electric vehicles along the Central Coast,” Georgette Cardona, national sales director at SemaConnect, said in a statement. “The San Luis Obispo Community College District is setting an example for other California colleges with its future-forward sustainability initiatives. We look forward to charging students and faculty when they return to campus next term.”
24 of the stations were installed at the Main Campus in San Luis Obispo and 16 were installed at the North Campus in Paso Robles. The stations will be available for drivers at a rate of $1.50 per hour for the first four hours.
