Policy Statement

This policy enables all parkers access to electric vehicle charging stations on SUNY Brockport’s main campus.

Applicability

This policy applies to all classifications of parkers.

Definitions

EV – Electric Vehicle
PTS – Parking and Transportation Services

Policy Procedures

  1. EV charging stations are available to all parkers and are currently located in various lots throughout the campus. Initially, charging stations will be located in lots G1 (Tower east), N, and V (SERC).
  2. Charging station reservations and fees will be arranged/charged via the ChargePoint App that users must download to their cell phones. It is expected users will not occupy a charging station for more than four hours at a time, and they will remove their vehicle when notified by their EV charging App that the charge is complete.
  3. Users will be charged an hourly rate and a valid parking permit or meter payment is required.
  4. The type of EV charging stations available at SUNY Brockport’s main campus are Level 2 Charging stations, providing electrical energy at either 240 VAC or 208 VAC.
  5. EV charging is authorized only at designated EV charging stations. No electric vehicle shall be charged by any other means, i.e., via the use of an extension cord.
  6. Failure to adhere to this Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Policy as well as Parking and Transportation’s Policies and Procedures may result in enforcement action, including towing of the vehicle at the expense of the vehicle owner.
  7. Parking a vehicle (at an EV charging station) that cannot be properly coupled to the EV charger plug and charged is strictly prohibited, e.g.: gas-powered vehicles
  8. Users are encouraged to use proper etiquette: Do not charge a vehicle if the charge is not needed or if your commute can be accomplished by charging at home; leave the charger available for another EV driver that may need the charge.
  9. EV charging stations may be closed for maintenance, construction and special event parking without notice.
  10. In case of an emergency or violation of use, authorized campus personnel may disconnect vehicles from the EV charging station at any time.
  11. EV charging stations marked “official college use only” are solely for charging college or BASC-owned vehicles.
