New Electric Vehicle Charger at EnterpriseWorks: June 2022

In June 2022, a brand-new electric vehicle charger was installed in the EnterpriseWorks parking lot and is accessible to all employees of the University of Illinois Research Park, located in Champaign, Illinois. The station contains a ChargePoint electric vehicle charger, suiting any and all electric vehicles, including Tesla. ChargePoint is the world’s leading electric vehicle charging network and has won environmental achievement awards from organizations like United Nations and Global Cleantech, along with over 20 technology awards from companies such as Goldman Sachs and Electrek.

ChargePoint is a simple to use charging station with a “tap to charge” option using their mobile app rather than carrying a physical access card. This electric vehicle charging station is a valuable new asset to EnterpriseWorks and Research Park.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Around the Park

The I Hotel and Conference Center provides guests with access to hybrid vehicles and Tesla charging stations. These charging stations are located on the hotel’s property and are available for use by guests of the hotel as well as Houlihan’s restaurant patrons. The stations consist of one Tesla High Power Charging station and an electric vehicle (J1772) charging station. This is part of the I Hotel’s sustainability efforts and responsibility of reducing the consumption of water, waste and energy throughout their hotel.

You can also find an EV charging station behind the John Deere Building in Research Park. At this location, the charging station is an EVlink from Schneider Electric and is compatible with all types of electric vehicles including fully electric as well as plug-in hybrids. Vehicles can be charged up to 80% of battery capacity in under 30 minutes with this EVlink charging station.
