Earth Day 2015: Suffolk Unveils Electric Car Chargers on Eastern Campus, Other Campuses to Follow

Earth Day 2015 

Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, front,  is joined by the College’s Executive Director of Sustainability Programs Nick Palumbo at the College’s Eastern Campus in Riverhead on Earth Day 2015 to unveil a pair of electric vehicle charging stations. McKay attached the charger to a plug-in Toyota Prius Hyrbid.  

Each station can rapid-charge two electric or hybrid/electric vehicles and is connected to the Chargepoint Network for recovery of utility costs. 

The college installed the charging stations to promote use of environmentally friendly vehicles by students, faculty and staff at the college. The general public may also use the chargers.

Installation of electric vehicle chargers at Suffolk’s campuses in Selden and Brentwood is scheduled for later this year.
