Penn. hospital installs eight EV charging stations
St. Luke’s University Health Network will be installing eight new electric vehicle charging stations in its Anderson Campus in Bethlehem, Penn., in a project fully funded through grants.
The hospital is partnering on the project with Blink Charging, who will provide, own and operate the equipment and handle customer transactions. Four charging stations are planned to be located in the parking lot next to the hospital’s main entrance and four will be located in the parking lot for the medical office building and cancer center.
“We want to encourage people to have sustainable practices,” Ed Nawrocki, President of St. Luke’s-Anderson, said in a statement. “It’s the future.”
The 80-amp, fast Level 2 charging stations will be open for members of the community, employees, patients and visitors to use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. St. Luke’s did not have to pay for any of the expenses of the installation thanks to a grant from a Driving PA Forward level 2 charging rebate program.
St. Luke’s plans to implement charging stations at other campuses over the coming years. More recently, the campus was designed and built to meet LEED environmental and energy efficiency standards.
