Albright College Makes EV Charging Efforts for Climate Change

by | Jun 2, 2022 | 0 comments |

Albright College in Pennsylvania is making the shift to convert their campus to become more energy efficient. They received grants to install 16 new EV chargers on campus and begin the process to electrify their on-campus fleets, starting with 5 public safety vehicles. These EV charging stations are going to be the first publicly accessible EV charging stations in the city their campus resides in. The campus will continue their efforts by working to make all 16 of their campus fleets electric.

Albright received a total $95,000 in grants awarded to them by Alternative Fuels incentive Grant Program and the Berks County Community Foundation to help with the infrastructure and offset of other costs going towards the new EV chargers. They are receiving thousands of dollars more in other grants to offset the costs of leasing the electric fleets that will be used by campus staff, like public safety.

This initiative was spearheaded by the Committee for Sustainability and Stewardship at Albright College. This committee leads change by spreading awareness and enacting policies about environmental efforts on campus.

“The inclusion of energy efficient equipment and practices is consistent with Albright College’s overall commitment to environmental awareness and responsibility,” said Kera Wierzbicki, Albright’s environmental health and safety officer and chair of the college’s Committee for Sustainability and Stewardship.
