CLINTON, N.Y. - Hamilton College has installed 20 electric charging stations across campus for use by the college and community free of charge.

William Huggins, the director of building systems management, says the stations give the college an opportunity to prepared for the future, before electric vehicles become more common.

"We needed to create the infrastructure before people will be willing to purchase EV vehicles. The campus was studied to determine the best locations to place the chargers; the selected locations took into account student needs and employee parking patterns as well as how we could make it convenient for guests to have opportunities to charge.  Our Admissions Office tends to see visitors that need this ability," said Huggins.

The charging stations are located in the parking lots above the dean of students’ office, behind the squash courts, in two student lots on the Kirkland side of campus, behind the library and the admission office, behind Skenandoa and Ferguson residence halls and behind Campus Safety’s office.

Huggins says the college doesn’t need to use all 20 stations at this time, and only three location are currently available. He says the other spaces will be put into use as the need for them grows.

Vehicles are allowed to stay in charging spaces for a maximum of three hours.

The installations were funded with grants from National Grid and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
