New electric vehicle charging stations added, now available in 13 locations

There are now even more opportunities to “park greener” at UW-Madison. Twelve new electric vehicle charging (EVC) stalls were added across six parking facilities in the past two months, for a total of 36 stalls in two surface lot and 11 parking garage/ramp locations. The latest addition of EVC stations is in the new Linden Drive Garage (Lot 67), which opened January 13, 2021.

Expanding the electric vehicle charging program is part of Transportation Services’ mission to support sustainability while also pursuing transportation technology that benefits our customers. The first EVC stations were installed in summer 2014. Over 31,000 charging sessions have been recorded since then, saving the equivalent of nearly 105,000 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions.

Use of the charging stations is cost-free to permit holders and paid visitor parking customers for up to four hours. You must have a ChargePoint account in order to use a campus charging station. (Excludes the Lot 64 station, as it is not a ChargePoint model.) Signing up for a ChargePoint account is cost-free and allows you access to all ChargePoint network stations.
