The University offers charging stations for electric vehicle (EV) drivers to plug in and power up. As apart of JEA's (Jacksonville Electric Authority) initiative and our commitment to provide supportive sustainable programs, we're excited to partner with ChargePoint to install our first charging station.

ChargePoint is the world's largest network of independently owned and operated EV charging stations with over 27,000 public charging stations worldwide, providing drivers access to charge on the go.
