Arizona State University now has six Level 2 Blink electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at its Tempe campus.

The charging stations are located at Packard Drive South, the Fulton Center and the Tyler Street Parking Structure. Each Blink charging station can charge one EV at a time.

Students, faculty and staff will have free access to charging stations with Blink access cards, which PTS will issue at the Tempe campus University Towers office. Visiting electric vehicle owners who are member of the Blink system also will be able to access the charging stations on the ASU Tempe campus. Thanks to a federal grant, electric vehicle owners will be able to charge their vehicles without paying for the cost of electricity.

ECOtality manages The EV Project, which will provide infrastructure to support the deployment of 8,300 EVs. It oversees EV charging installations as part of the 14,000 commercial and residential charging stations that will be in 18 major cities and metropolitan areas and is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
