UNCP recognized for efforts to support electric vehicles
Pembroke, N.C. – UNCP is pleased to announce that we have become a member of Plug-in NC, a state-wide program to recognize locations that are supporting electric vehicles.
Plug-in NC was started by the North Carolina Plug-in Electric Vehicle Taskforce to track electric vehicle efforts occurring across the state and raise awareness of driving electric. Currently, there are over 4,000 electric vehicles registered in the state and over 600 charging stations. We are proud to be part of this movement to encourage electric vehicle adoption.
UNCP is supporting driving electric by providing charging stations for drivers of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV), free of charge.
"UNCP is committed to reducing its environmental impact and by providing PEV charging for students and employees is one of the campus' sustainable transportation strategies,” Jay Blauser, Sustainability Director, UNCP.
“Our Plug-in NC members are working hard to support driving electric in North Carolina,” said Kristi Brodd, Outreach Coordinator for the NC PEV Taskforce. “We are thankful for their efforts and excited to see the continued growth in electric vehicle purchases and charging stations installations across our state.”
