N.C. State University and the N.C. Solar Center will open four new electric vehicle charging stations later this week.
The charging stations are located at the McKimmon Center and the E. Carroll Visitor Center. Ribbon cuttings for both locations will be held Thursday, at 10 a.m. at the McKimmon Center on Gorman St. and at 10:30 a.m. at the visitor center on Varsity Drive.
The two McKimmon Center charging stations and their installation were provided by Progress Energy as part of a grant the Raleigh utility received from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The visitor center stations were financed by a grant program, the N.C. Solar Center's Clean Fuels Advanced Technologies, which is funded by the N.C. Department of Transportation.
