Six new electric car charging stations were made public last week on campus at an event recognizing how the University of South Florida St. Petersburg (USFSP) is implementing solutions to become more sustainable.
Partnering with USFSP was Duke Energy, the league of Women Voters of the St. Pete Area, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and Tampa Bay Clean Cities Coalition. The event showcased Teslas, Nissan Leafs, Chevy Bolts and more that were available to test drive.
Regional Chancellor Martin Tadlock appeared at the event encouraging students to work toward becoming more sustainable in their own lives.
These six new charging stations will help students and faculty play a part in reducing carbon monoxides, nitrogen oxides and other emissions that non-electric vehicles produce every day. The event showed USFSP’s efforts in working toward becoming a more sustainable campus.
“Every individual has to do something,” Tadlock said. “If every individual doesn’t do something, there’s gonna be no progress.”
