Funded by a Reconnect California grant, four additional electric car charging stations have been added to the Cal State East Bay Hayward campus to meet growing university community demand. The two original charging stations in Lot G on the Hayward campus, were installed in fall 2012.

Evelyn Muñoz, CSUEB energy manager, secured the grant, which covered the $6,000 installation cost. The charging stations are an effective step towards helping the university become more sustainable and should be available to all who need them, she said.

“The two original stations were constantly being used, and now we’re seeing an even larger number of electric cars on campus,” Muñoz said.
