Phoenix College now has charging stations for electric vehicles!

PC has the unique distinction of having two stations available for the charging of electric vehicles.  With funding provided through a grant from the US Department of Energy, these stations are one of our commitments to sustainability.

The two stations are located in the lower level of the parking structure across from the Public Safety office.  The stations are set up for electric vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Volt, the Nissan Leaf and the newest Toyota Prius plug-in.  Drivers of these vehicles can use a swipe card to activate the charging process which typically takes two to four hours.  The chargers will automatically shut off and the cord is long enough so that cars parked next to the designated spaces can be charged as well.  Attached is a picture of the designated space.

If you are an owner (or driver) of one of these vehicles, and would like to begin using these charging stations, please email me and I will supply you with a swipe card.

The next time you are out and about, please swing by and take a look!
