Dickinson now has three electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on campus, each with two charging plugs, allowing for six electric vehicles to charge at once.
“We’re trying to encourage people to drive electric vehicles,” says Ken Shultes ’89, associate vice president for sustainability & facilities planning, “because it reduces carbon emissions versus … combustion engines by 75%.”
The EV stations play a role in helping Dickinson reach its sustainability and carbon-neutrality goals, which recently helped to land the college at No. 3 on the Princeton Review’s 2019 list of Top Green Colleges. They're located behind the Waidner Admissions House (272 W. High Street), in the Kaufmann Hall parking lot (400 W. North St.) and in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium parking lot (360 W. Louther St.).
