Campus Parking Map, link. As the demand on campus increases for more stations, plans are to install more to meet the need. On June 23, 2014 UNCP became the first college in North Carolina to become a Partner in DOE's Workplace Charging Challenge! The Workplace Charging Challenge is a collaborative effort to increase the number of U.S. employers offering workplace charging by tenfold inthe next five years. For more information about the Challenge, see DOE's Workplace Charging Challenge website. A two kW solar photovoltaic (PV) array was installed to offset the energy consumed by the 2 EVSE at Lot 17, creating a carbon net-zero application! A one kW solar PV array was installed at each of the single chargers in lot 6 & 14, as well. To view our online Partner Profile at DOE's website, click here, for our Partner Plan, click here.
