Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations 

In April of 2017, Franklin and Marshall’s Sustainability Committee funded the installation of 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.  The stations were installed in the College Square parking lot, adjacent to Harrisburg Ave.  Each of these stations can support two vehicles at once, allowing for a total of 4 electric vehicles to be charging at any given time.  The stations are rated at a level two setting, meaning that they charge at a faster rate than residential chargers.  All of these charging stations are open to students, faculty, staff, and community members to use free of charge!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a charge to use the stations?

    The stations are available to use free of charge.

     

  • Who can use the stations?

    The stations are open for anyone to use.  Students, staff, faculty, visitors and community members all have equal access to the stations.   With that said, please make sure to move your vehicle once it is done charging.  This will allow everyone the chance to utilize the stations.

    The EV charging stations can be found in the College Square parking lot.  The lot can be accessed at the intersection of Race Ave. and Harrisburg Ave and then proceeding to make the first right into the College Square lot.  The stations are located in the corner closest to the intersection of Race Ave. and Harrisburg Ave.

    The charging station connectors are universal and should work on any vehicle with a SAE J1772 connector.  Tesla owners will need to bring along their SAE J1772 charging adaptor. 

     

  • How long can I park in these spots?

    We ask that you only park in the EV charging station while you are charging your vehicle.  Please plan to move your vehicle after it is done charging to allow other electric vehicle owners to charge up their rides!

     

  • How long will it take to charge my car?

    Charging times will vary depending on the type of car, amount of charge left in your battery, and the size of your car’s battery.  The stations are level two, meaning that they are faster than residential chargers, but not as fast as Tesla Superchargers.
