Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Did you know that about 50% of the Region of Waterloo's greenhouse gas emissions come from transportation? Well, it's true. And now you've got one more tool in your toolbox to help reduce our impact.

Laurier has recently installed its first Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station, which is located in the parking area at Lazaridis Hall, adjacent to Balsam Street. Additional (EV) charging stations will be installed in lot #12 in August 2019.

The EV charging station hosts four vehicles with two level-two chargers. The station will be powered by solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, which amounts to 12 kW of power and will be connected to Laurier’s growing smart grid through the university's energy management system and future microgrid. 

In order to connect to the charging station, you will be required to create an account with Flo.
