University of Illinois installs electric vehicle charging stations

URBANA - The University of Illinois Parking Department has installed charging spaces for electric vehicles in several campus parking garages.

Officials say some charging spaces are located in metered spaces, which require standard payment, in parking garages B4, C7, and D5.  The other charging spaces are located in parking garages B4, C10, D5, and F29, and require garage-specific permits.

All of the charging spaces have Level 1 outlets, which are recommended for light charging and longer periods of slow charging.  

For more information on the charging spaces, as well as information on Level 2 stations planned for 2015, visit
