The new stations, installed earlier this fall, accommodate charging equipment up to 240 volts.
They add to the growing number of electric car outlets in the city. This summer, the city introduced 18 charging stations at six public parking locations downtown.
According to an article in Concentrate Media, the charging stations cost $28,865 and were funded by a U.S. Department of Energy grant administered by the Clean Energy Coalition.
The city stations cost roughly $110,000 and also were funded by a DOE grant.
The U-M stations are located at:
- A parking lot at the corner of Hoover and Greene streets
- In the Ann Street parking structure near the medical campus
- At the Murfin Street lot on north campus
