Campbell becomes member of Plug-in NC

BUIES CREEK, North Carolina – Campbell University has become a member of Plug-in NC, a state-wide program to recognize locations and organizations that support electric vehicles.

Plug-in NC was started by the North Carolina Plug-in Electric Vehicle Taskforce to track electric vehicle efforts occurring across the state and raise awareness of driving electric. Currently, there are over 4,000 electric vehicles registered in the state and over 600 charging stations.

In October 2014, Campbell installed its first electric vehicle (EV) charging station on its main campus. That was also the first EV charging station installed in Harnett County and among the first at any private college or university in North Carolina.

“Our Plug-in NC members are working hard to support driving electric in North Carolina,” said Kristi Brodd, outreach coordinator for the NC PEV Taskforce. “We are thankful for their efforts and excited to see the continued growth in electric vehicle purchases and charging stations installations across our state.”

Plug-in NC is a state-wide recognition program that was launched in 2014 by the NC PEV Taskforce and Advanced Energy. The program recognizes North Carolina businesses, schools, communities and organizations that have installed charging stations or purchased electric fleet vehicles.
