UNCW EH&S Awarded Grant for Public EV Charging Stations Thanks to Duke Energy Program
Wilmington, N.C. – UNCW Environmental Health and Safety was recently awarded a $10,000 grant for two public electric vehicle charging stations. Sustainability Captain, Kat Pohlman, coordinated with Parking and Transportation to apply for the grant, “I am excited to expand this service and engage more commuters through this partnership,” Pohlman said. Over 500 charging stations were requested from almost 100 applicants across the state of North Carolina.
The charging stations are funded by Duke Energy and are part of the company’s 200 public charging stations that are being installed around North Carolina. Duke Energy’s EV Charging Infrastructure Support Project provided $1 million to help cities and towns develop public charging stations for residents. Duke Energy will pay 100 percent of the installation costs under the program.
“Over the past decade, Duke Energy has supported the development of several hundred electric vehicle charging stations in North Carolina,” said David Fountain, Duke Energy’s North Carolina president. “Adoption of EVs depends on a robust infrastructure for consumers.”
Potential locations for the charging stations are Lot K Extension, Lot D, Lot R1, Lot L or Lot 1B.
The Duke Energy Program was part of a recent settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and environmental groups.
