Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations now on campus
Centennial College is joining other progressive organizations in supporting environment sustainability and green transportation in our community by providing four electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations in our Visitor parking lots. The two installations at Ashtonbee Campus and two at Progress Campus are now operational.
Parking permit holders and visitors can use the spaces to recharge their vehicles. Permit holders can do so at no cost, while visitors (non-permit holders) will need to pay for the parking space as they would normally be required to do. Electricity is provided at no cost to users. However, the charging spaces are limited to a maximum of 3 hours of use. The college asks users to please move their vehicle to another parking location once they have completed recharging their car within the 3-hour timeframe. Campus Security will be monitoring use and duration to ensure that access remains fair and equitable.
The EV spaces were added to the parking lots as part of Centennial's ongoing commitment to smart stewardship of the environment and a truly sustainable college. We encourage our employees and students to consider purchasing an electric vehicle the next time they are looking for a new car. Every major manufacturer now has an EV model in showrooms and government grants are significant in reducing the acquisition costs.
