MSU Opens Vehicle Charging Station For Public

EAST LANSING (AP) – A public electric-vehicle charging station has opened on the Michigan State University campus.

The East Lansing school says the charging station in the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center is the first of several on-campus stations designated for public use. Faculty, staff and students also can use it.

Cost is $2.50 per hour, which also covers parking fees. The station accepts credit or debit cards.

The station is a joint project of the university and Lansing Board of Water & Light. The installation was paid for by a grant from the U.S. Energy Department.
