The initiative supports Columbia’s Sustainability Plan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from commuter travel through the promotion of more sustainable commute modes like electric vehicles.

The 560 Riverside Drive charging station was newly installed over the winter, with a dual-port charger up and running by December of 2017.

Upgrades in the ETG and IAB garages include the replacement of single-port charging stations with dual-port ones, doubling the charging capacity in both garages. Each of the four stations (two in ETG and two in IAB) can now accommodate four cars at a time. The upgraded stations are operational as of July 1, 2018.
