LSU Unveils Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Two chargers, donated by Entergy, have been installed on campus – one across from Patrick F. Taylor Hall and one in the Hart Lot near Kirby Smith.
The chargers--the first installed at any Louisiana university--will provide students, faculty and staff with free power for their electric vehicles as part of Entergy's five-year Charging Station Award Program.
The charging stations will enable university areas--such as the Center for Energy Studies--and Entergy to collect usage data and conduct critical research about the chargers’ impact on consumers and the electric grid.
The Greater Baton Rouge Clean Cities Coalition, housed at CES, helped to coordinate the electric vehicle charging program for the University.
