The college scored the highest in the state in the 2018 NJ Charging Challenge: Electrify Your Workplace recognition program. Recently the school installed two dual-port Level 2 charging stations at its Branchburg campus. With electric cars becoming more popular, all four of the college’s electric car chargers are often in use during weekday business hours. Charging at the stations is free and is open to the public. Station equipment and installation were funded by grants from NJDEP’s It Pays to Plug In: NJ’s Electric Vehicle Charging Grant Program.
