Two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are available for staff, student and visitor use within the Bostwick Parking Ramp. The staff charging station is located near the staff parking entrance off Fountain NE. The student/visitor station is located near the Bostwick NE ramp entrance. Each station is able to charge two cars at a time on adjacent parking spaces. Only vehicles that are using the charging stations may park in the designated spots which are painted green.
If the EV charging stations in the Bostwick Parking Ramp are highly utilized, more stations will be considered in the future.
Using a Charging Station
In order to use a station, you must have a ChargePoint account. ChargePoint fully manages all of our charging stations and they provide support 24/7 from through the app or the support number listed on the station’s interactive screen. For additional information including instructions and videos on how to use the station, download the ChargePoint mobile app and sign up for a free ChargePoint account. In addition to station usage fee, users must have a valid parking permit, or pay the designated parking fees.
To ensure that access is available to as many users as possible, vehicles using the charging stations must be moved to a regular parking space within the Bostwick Ramp or exit the ramp when fully charged. When the vehicle is charged, ChargePoint will send the user a notification that the car is charged, and that they have 30 minutes to move the vehicle.
The cost to use an EV station is 15 cents per kilowatt hour. After the 30-minute time period the user will be charged $1 per hour.
